[Massdrop] Zpacks Nero Backpack

Hey everybody,

Our good friends over at Zpacks teamed up with our good friends at Massdrop to bring the Zpacks ‘Nero’ Backpack to the Massdrop website, at a rather nice discount.

As any of you Zpacks fans know, Zpacks almost never offers deals on their gear. Every few years they sometimes do a Christmas/holiday discount, but even that has been rare.

Over the last year Zpacks has worked with Massdrop on a few different Drops/Deals, including the Duplex, but this time around it is the new Nero backpack.

You can join this Massdrop drop at:

The normal price for the Nero is $199.00 USD.

The discount price that Massdrop has been able to offer is: $174.99

That is discount of $24.01 for the mathematically inclined.

The Nero is available in army green, azure blue, black, or gray. The azure blue and army green are in my photo attached to this article.

You can read my initial thoughts/insights into the new Nero backpack within this article of mine.

Greetings Adventurers!

The sub 2268 hiking world went a little berserk back in January (2017) when they noticed that the Zpacks Zero and XS-Zero backpacks were no longer being offered.

Today, Zpacks has unveiled the reason: the brand new Zpacks Nero backpack!

In the words of Zpacks:

If you can’t take a Zero take a Nero! The Nero is an ultralight frameless backpack stripped down to only the most popular features. This compact backpack has no frame aside from a closed cell foam sit-pad for cushioning. It is best suited for hardcore long distance hikers with base weights around 5-6 lbs (2.5 kg) and maximum loads up to 20 lbs (9 kg).
