New to the backcountry for 2010 is the Black Diamond Infinity 60 pack. The Infinity 60 is part of Black Diamond's Enduro series which is geared for overnight treks. The Enduro and Launch lines tout the new Active Frame Design. The technology is advertised by Black Diamond to allow the hipbelt and shoulder straps to move lock-step with your body – as you move, your pack will follow suit.
Checking out the features of the pack shows the likely features of most overnighters - top loading, ventilated back panel, hydration reservoir pocket, tool loops, and several external pockets. The Infinity 60 is constructed of nylon rip-stop and nylon twill. The pack weighs a bit under 4 pounds out of the box – average for a 60 liter backpack. The technology is supposed to make the pack flow with your body movements.
The real test of the Black Diamond Infinity 60 is to see if its Active Frame Design works as advertised. Loaded up with an average load of 30-pounds, the pack does not feel stiff strapped to your back. It does adjust smoothly to your movements. The load you are hauling is comfortably supported and the Infinity 60 distributes the weight across your back allowing your pack to seem lighter.
The Black Diamond Infinity 60 offers a comfortable overnight pack that is a solid choice. There are 2 color schemes that Black Diamond offers the pack – orange and gray. Black Diamond is retailing the Infinity 60 at $219.95.
