High Sierra Sport's Airhead: One Cool Pack

In today’s outdoor market, there are a slew of brands utilizing breathable stitched foam back panels to increase your comfort.  But when it comes to breathability, there’s one bag that outdoes them all.  The Airhead from High Sierra Sport is, quite literally, one cool bag.

With eye-catching, sheer mesh construction, the Airhead is perfect for your kid’s day at school, the pool or for a weekend adventure on the trail.  Multiple storage options and a front-hung monster hook to hold extra gear, this versatile, go-anywhere Airhead pack is a real breath of fresh air.

In the hot, sticky woods the sheer mesh construction not only ensures that your trail buddy has a feather light pack, but it reduces the normal ocean of back sweat which your teenaged hiking buddy will certainly find uncool.

At 2021 cubic inches the Airhead swallows up all the gear your hiking partner will need for an excursion into the unknown.  The ribbed grab handle is one of the best we’ve seen on any pack and ensured that our Junior Gumption Field tester always had a firm grip on the action.  And for those moments that mother nature gets a bit fickle, the Airhead pack has a hidden water-resistant rain cover. 

The mesh construction means that the bag lacks the structural veracity of similar sized packs, and we would like to see the the inclusion of a water resistant rubberized bottom in future iterations of this pack.  That being said, our field team found that the overall design made it far more versatile than your standard backpack. 

The Airhead has proven to be durable and abrasion resistant in any activity. 
For those moments not spent trekking through the woods our Junior Gumption Gear field tester discovered that the Airhead pack provided a great way to store and carry all of his swimming equipment.  The sheer mesh construction creates tremendous ventilation for all your west swim gear.   

We do need to note that the front-hung hook on Airhead examined by our Team detached within the first week of testing.  Yet considering High Sierra Sport’s legacy of sturdy packs we chalk up this incident to a simple manufacturing glitch which happens from time to time.  The good news is that with High Sierra’s industry leading warranty, rest assured your gear will be taken care of by HSS tremendous customer service team if any problem arises.

The Bottom Line…
The High Sierra Sport Airhead is fully equipped for quick-hit backcountry missions or life’s daily adventures whether by land, air or sea.
