The Marmot Kompressor Plus Pack is a ultralight pack for day hikes, speed summits, and everything else in between. The Kompressor Plus has taken the original Kompressor and bolstered it for comfort, compression, and more. The additional features start at the shoulder straps for a more comfortable carry and a removable webbing hip belt for preventing the load from bouncing around as you race back to camp before a downpour. The removable closed-cell foam back panel is still there, ready to be used as a camp seat while enjoying an evening by the fire. The roomier hood allows you to stuff more layers and gear into the pack, and improved wrap around compression shrinks it down small. The dual ice axe attachments are ready for the summit push and mesh front pockets secure granola bars and energy gels close by. The whole bag stuffs into it's own lid when not in use, taking up less space in your larger pack and around the house.

Perfect Ultralight OptionI bought this pack for its weight and stowability - both of which are perfect. The best use is for people who want a minimalist, super-lightweight day pack that fits very well into a backpack or carry-on luggage. Â
I've worn it several times and the fit is very good and comfortable. Even with the minimalist shoulder & hip straps - it never rubs or feels too little. Â The volume is perfect for the 10 essentials.
My only issue is that with no ventilation between the pack and my back - there is considerable moisture build-up (my back was soaked). However, not using the chest or hip straps mitigated that issue somewhat.
Overall - I'm very satisfied with the quality and functionality of this ultralight daypack.

A very good pack just short of great.I needed a light-weight, compressible pack that was big enough to carry clothes, sleeping supplies, sundries etc for a trip through Cuba. This pack excelled except when carrying small but heavy-ish loads. Since it lacks any internal structure and only has compression straps located at the middle of the pack, it is difficult to cinch tightly when carrying just water bottles and books.Â So to get the best usage from this product I used dry sacks to help control the distribution of weight and increase organization.
Some suggestions for next years model:
1. Use the same mesh material from the straps on the back to help increase airflow.
2. Corrugate the pad and reduce the size of the envelope where the pad is housed to give more shape while keeping the weight down.
3. Add an extra, lower compression strap.

For ultralighters this does the trickThe unique design and super-low weight drew me to this pack and after weighing options with competing day packs - I settled on it as a risk. Â But, I'm not disappointed since it does the trick.
First outing was a simple day hike to get used to the minimalist style. Â Fits very well and rides just fine. Having no ventilation does make your back very wet with sweat; but that's a trade-off for the reduced weight.
Subsequent outings with MB in Colorado and on the AT through the Smokies convinced me this is a great ultralight option. You will have to like the feel and adjust from your previous packs - but the weight savings are awesome.
Best feature is that it stores in its own pocket for traveling or throwing in a larger backpack. Â Just take out the foam back support; roll it up; and everything packs up fine for travel.
Storage is ample (although there are no internal pockets or hydration sleeves) and manufacturing quality is superb.

Works for me !I've been looking for some kind of a bag to carry my stuff in.. when I go riding on my trail bike.. you know, like a clear helmet shield, rain gear, water, camera, and a coat and such. With all those compression straps and other attachments it worked great just strapped down behind the seat on top of the tool kit. It saved me a couple three hundred bucks.

Lightweight and right sizeI bought this day pack for myself and then bought a second one for my daughter. This is the roomiest, most lightweight pack with two side pockets for water bottles. Great day pack to pack into your backpack. But more than that, great size and weight day pack to carry on an all-day hike with food and extra clothes.

Best in class performanceI got this pack after looking at everything I could find. Great value. Plenty of room. The outside pockets are located in a great easy to reach areas. The cinches really allow you to compress your gear.
Use it daily. Backcountry skiing as well.Â
Very pleased with this pack. I would recommend it to anyone.Â

This bag is one of the most versatile pack I have ever owned.I dont really know where to begin but to say this pack is super lightweight and functional. I love that the mesh bag in the front is perfect for drying. The quality for the price is really surprising. All of the straps are intentionally placed to compress the pack but are all helpful for quickly strapping in equipment. The two side straps clips are reversed so that you can make one long horizontal strap to attach an extra pair of shoes or larger items. Lastly is its simply fun to wear and looks good.
