Product Information

Our athletes' quest; a super-clean climbing backpack clear of everything but the essential details you need when pushing the limits on big alpine ascents. For moving fast in Alaska or the Karakoram, this function-driven pack carries the loads of a multiday kit without getting in the way of your ability to move easily. It details an integrated, asymmetrical spindrift collar that opens wide and closes in a single swipe for fast packing. A secondary collar secures your gear from ugly weather, allows serious overstuffing and holds gear securely when the pack is hanging at belays. The removable frame sheet, constructed with a light aluminum rod and covered with mesh, provides support for weighted loads and moves with you as you bend and stretch. Ergonomic shoulder straps (with load lifters) match your torso's curves for 24-hour comfort, and the padded hip belt is removable when you prefer a more simple webbing belt. Four rows of exterior daisy chains provide lashing choices for a rope, helmet and pad; ice tools attach via an integrated buckle and tool pocket. 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 fast access to small essentials. constructed with light yet durable 6.25-oz 210-denier nylon double-ripstop and 6.05-oz 400-denier nylon ripstop treated with a polyurethane coating and a DWR finish, and lined with a 1.8-oz 40-denier nylon double-ripstop with a polyurethane coating and silicone finish.light, bomber, tear- and abrasion-resistant nylon ripstop
