Whether you’re climbing long routes in the Blue Mountains or any of the classic Alpine routes in NZ. When conditions dictate a need for additional gear or an overnight kit, this alpinist backpack expands to handle the load.
One hundred and one challenges stand between you and your destination. Your pack shouldn’t be one of them.
This function-driven pack carries the loads of a multiday ascent without interfering with efficient movement. It features an integrated, asymmetrical spindrift collar that opens wide and closes in a single motion for fast packing. The high-density, foam back panel gives the pack structure and helps to support heavy loads, but can be removed for lightweight pursuits. Ergonomic shoulder straps (with load lifters) match your torso’s contours for 24-hour comfort, and the padded hipbelt is removable when you prefer a simple webbing belt. Four rows of exterior daisy chains provide lashing options for a rope, helmet or pad. Other details include compression straps to carry skis and cinch down loads, an asymmetric profile for elbow clearance and a zippered pocket on the lid for quick access to small essentials. Made from lightweight yet durable 5.5-oz 210-denier CORDURA® 86% nylon/14% polyester with a polyurethane coating.
