  • Product Description
    Versatility redefined, the Rhyolite 47L Hiking Pack has an innovative front zip opening for fast and easy access while on the go. The full length front zip means you can ‘place pack’ your gear internally, as well as packing via the traditional top opening, which in turn allows you to use smaller individual dry bags instead of one large dry bag. Gone are the days of pulling out everything to get your sleeping bag or beanie at the bottom of your pack. A weather-resistant construction, this front zip features a double storm flap and top tension hook to help keep out the rain, while the self-draining hip belt pockets are great for deep river crossings and hiking in heavy rain. The Helium™ harness has a lightweight yet supportive frame for comfortably carrying a moderate load, and like the rest of our hiking range, the Rhyolite has side compression straps, dual walking pole (or ice axe) attachments, mesh side pockets for drink bottles and is hydration compatible. With a 47 litre capacity, this pack can fit all your hiking essentials.

    You are best to clean your pack with a natural, non-detergent soap and a soft-bristled brush
    Suitable soap types are: pure soap, vegetable soap and Nikwax® Tech Wash®
    Rinse the pack well and dry it in a well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight
    Do not put your pack in the washing machine as this will void your warranty

Does this pack come in W sizes or just S?
Grace B on Oct 6, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Hello Grace, this one just comes in Standard 2 (S2) and Standard 3 (S3).

Thanks the Macpac Team
I have a Weka 40 pack, which is not quite large enough. I take it that the Rhyolite 47 pack will give me 7 litres more capacity. Is that correct?
Phil M on Oct 13, 2021

Yes, that is correct. The Rhyolite will give you 7L more capacity.

What rain cover and size would you buy for this pack? Need one. Cheers
Deano on Feb 26, 2021

The Medium size rain cover fits packs up to 50L, so would be a good option.
The Large is designed for packs up to 70L, so might be too much excess room.

How do I carry a tent with the Rhyolite pack?
Bev W on Dec 1, 2020

Depending on the size, this can be packed inside or strapped to the side. Otherwise, you could also put this under the lid.

What does hydration compatible mean?
Sarah on Oct 4, 2020

This means you can put a hydration bladder inside the bag and there is an opening for the tube to come out.

Hi just wondering if this pack bag waterproof ?
Marypawan on Oct 1, 2020

This pack is weather resistant, but not waterproof. We would recommend using a Pack Cover if using in the rain.

Hi what is the weight limit for this pack? I am looking to carry around 16-18kg and really like this pack
Steven.P on Aug 3, 2020

The recommended carrying weight is around 15kg. You can carrier heavier but your comfort could decrease depending on your personal preference/tolerance.

The Macpac Team
Does the pack have side pockets capable of holding a water bottle?
Antony S on Jul 26, 2020

Yes, the mesh pockets are capable of holding water bottles. From our product description:
"mesh side pockets for drink bottles and is hydration compatible"

Thanks, The Macpac Team
Would this fit into carry on luggage?
Loosh L on Jun 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Loosh, thank you for your comment. As it is a 40L, it is generally considered too large for carry on. But do check with the airline as each have their own restrictions. All the best!
