At just 5.8 ounces, Hyperlite Mountain Gear’s Metro pack weighs only a bit more than a heavy-duty garbage bag, and it’s so small you can slip it into your back pocket. Most impressive: it’s cut from the same material used in sails and blimps, so it’s waterproof, and it’s 10 times stronger than steel.
