    Outstanding!
    I have tried many packs, but this one beats them all.

  • I was born with a spine-problem and have always had problems to find packs that doesn't irritate my spine. This pack has a channel in the middle that solves the problem.
  • Integrated bivy pad.
  • A "bowl" cut out at the top of the sack that doesn't hinder movement when you have the helmet on.
  • Good extra outer pocket for crampons. Or gasoline or other stuff you don't want inside the sack.
  • The back panel breaths very well.
  • Three point haul system.
  • Gear loops.
  • You can get rid of the waistbelt and stove it away.
  • it's shape is slimmed in a way you don't feel it when climbing technical stuff.
  • High snow lock.
  • The internal map pocket is placed in a good way.

  • It's a mountaineering sack, so of course it has capability for double axes, skis, rope compression straps on top and outer half-pockets for tent poles.

  • I have used it for large mountains, for tech climbing and for easier hiking. It was loaded with 40kg as a maximum and it made it, but I started to feel the shoulder straps quite a lot then, but of course it's not made for such heavy loads.

    Five stars without any doubt!
