goFASTandLIGHT purposely does not carry a lot of backpacks. We believe that the "fit" of a backpack is important and should be performed at a physical store. Different body types, men, women, short, tall - require different fits.
But now, we have found a pack that uses special technology to break all the rules (in a good way). Plus -- we offer you the chance to send it back if it does not fit (see details below).
The Klymit Motion 35 is an overbuilt pack with a svelte panel loading design that makes shuffling and organizing your gear easier than ever before, all while coming in at an ultra light weight. The unique suspension features the Air Beam Framesheet and allows for a perfect and dynamic carry
The Klymit Motion 35 is a medium capacity pack that comes in 2 sizes, but offers incredibly flexible adjustability to many body types, shapes and sizes. In fact, if you were in the backpack pack rental business - these would accomodate a wide variety of customers. Below We provided a table that will help you zero in on the size that is right for you.
The Motion 35 it is a frameless pack that uses a special inflatable airframe to adjust for fit and load by adding or releasing air. The Klymit motion 35 has a 35 Liter capacity a maximum load rating of 35lb. Hiqh quality materials, masterful stitching, well thought out extras - all this from a pack that weighs about 1.7 lbs
The Airframe suspension simply and effectively uses the properties of gravity and pressurized air for an ideal and dynamic carry, increasing comfort while moving with your body. It keeps the load close to your center of gravity while dampening vibrations and reducing pack bounce translating to better efficiency and longer lasting energy. The streamlined, narrow shape and paneling of the pack beg you to go hard, even off trail in the backcountry. The comfort and support of the Motion 35 will change what you expect from a pack, and the well thought out features and overbuilt construction translate to unforgettable days in the backcountry.
For 2015 Klymit introduced the ability to Air Up / Air Down - on the fly - as you walk. To do this they added a black rubber inflation bulb that is stored in the belt pocket. Unzip the pocket - squeeze the bulb and you inflate the frame, making it firmer. Press the release valve and you can precisely let air out. This permits continuous adjustments to fine tune based on load, terrain, or even your mood.
The Klymit motion 60 is a full size (60 liter / 3660 Cubic Inch) pack
Problem: Conventional backpack frames are rigid and designed to transfer load directly to the hips, but because they are rigid they only transfer directly when the body is in one, or a limited number of positions. Load transfer to the hips fails under movement and contortion of the human body. Nearly all major pack manufacturers have attempted to solve this problem with swivels and pivots, and thus compromising load stability during movement. Pack frames are heavy, inefficient under many conditions, and due to the advances in lightweight camping gear, much of the weight of a backpack load is the pack itself.
Solution: Using superlight, modern fabrics and pressurized air Klymit has developed a backpack frame that transfers the load to the hips even under movement and contortion of the body in a wider variety of conditions. Using a Motion 35 allows the user have a lighter pack yet increase comfort, load transfer, capacity, and pack rigidity at the same time.

Design Goals of the Kymit Airbeam Suspension System:
1. More Comfortable: The Airbeam Frame Sheet conforms perfectly to the shape of the users back while utilizing gravity and air to create the most comfortable pack suspension system on the market.
2. Better Compression: Using built in 360 degree compression straps and Air Beam frame results in a load that is solid, tight, and not prone to shift, resulting in best carrying comfort and stability.
3. Better Load Transfer & Stability. The Airbeam transfers load to the hips and center of gravity to the pelvis even under movement and contortion of the body, while decreasing weight and increasing comfort under a variety of conditions.
4. Full Suspension: The Airbeam frame sheet saves you energy by not allowing hot spots and semi rigid contact points, mitigating shaking of the pack, offering vibration dampening that reduces pack bounce by 50 - 80%.
5. Adjustable pressure: Sometimes the load is light and you want it softer, other times you have 10 days of food packed and want all the stiffness you can get. The Klymit Motion pack Airframe allows you to inflate to where is feels good and is "just right."
6. Full Range of Motion: The Airbeam framesheet is compliant during motion and conforms with the body during strenuous activity for maneuverability during activity such as leaning on a traverse, ducking under trees, scrambling up a hill, or even just tying your shoe.
7. Lighter: Harnessing the power of air pressure - rather than plastics, carbon fiber or metals - the Airbeam system is amoung the lightest on the market.
8. Durable Construction: The Motion Series features premium rip stop fabrics, a 3D mesh back panel (for air circulation), high stitch count seams, canted hip belt, multi density foams in the shoulders, hips, and additional bar tacking and fabric on all high load areas.
9. Flexible Sizing: Use this special sizing chart and

3rd Party Reviews of the Klymit Motion 35:
This pack is a winner Review by Campology - The Klymit Motion 35 was a pleasant surprise. I didn’t expect this high quality and well designed product from the first time pack builder. The shoulder strap and hip belt were the perfect balance of light and comfort. The stabilization straps on the hip belt and shoulders are additions that are often left out with ultra-lights. This pack excels. The Air-Beam Frame Sheet both performs well and is ultra comfortable to carry loads. It flexes with the content and shapes to the hiker’s back. This pack is a winner from the first time pack builder. If you can find one, buy one! I suspect you can always use another quality pack in your gear locker.

Airbeam Frame Review by Rock and Ice We did blind tests with the air frame…and a rigid frame. No one noticed any difference in load transfer to the hips, but each climber said that the air frame allowed more freedom of movement. (Posted on 8/18/14)
Klymit Motion 35 Review by Hikelighter As my long time readers know, I have tried and used a whole lot of different backpacks that are on the market. The list of backpacks in the sub-40 range is not all that big and most of them have been on my back at some point…. Let me just say it and get it out of the way…The Klymit Motion 35 is the most comfortable sub-40 liter backpack I have ever used!

Klymit has hit a Homerun Review by SecondGear - Klymit has hit a homerun with its 35-liter Motion pack! This lightweight day hike/overnighter pack is very easy to wear, tough, and comfortable! I have never had a backpack that I routinely forgot that I was wearing like I do this one. This is a terrific lightweight pack that acts like it's a ton burlier and heavier than it is. It gives great performance all on its own, and as a lightweight, gram-weenie pack — it performs out of this world!
This is my new go-to fav in my backpack arsenal!

Great bag Review by Ratherbeinwoods - I've had this bag for about a month now - very versatile, used it mountain biking hiking and peak bagging . Lots of room and the air suspension seems to work as I don't even notice it. (Posted on 4/7/14)
Fit Guarantee: Use the sizing guidelines above. Purchase the proper pack for your needs. When you get it - open it - follow the setup guidelines in the video above, then load it up with clean clothing, wrap some food cans in there - basically simulate a load and strap it on - adjust the straps. Wear it around the house, go upstairs, downstairs, take a lap around the block. Pump up the airframe to firm, then let air completely out, then fill it half way. Get a feel for how it works. If it does not work for you -
