A thin, streamlined pack, with a minimal feel, perhaps more suited to Alpine climbing than anything. There’s no clever back system or lots of padding to complicate things, which does help to keep the weight down. Its long, thin shape allows for a great freedom of movement. The climbing pedigree means that there are no side pockets for water bottles, although there is space for a hydration bladder and loops for walking poles, or even ice-axes.
Main compartment: Drawcord and buckle lid
Back system: Channeled
