Product Description

Ideal for gear laden daytrips and overnight forays into the alpine, the Khamsin 50 is a well balanced mid-sized mountaineering pack. Loaded with alpine features and highly strippable, this pack can deliver a payload and then be compressed for a close to the body fit when traveling light to the summit. Truly an amazing pack.

The Lowdown

A perfect pack for adventures in colouir climbing, spring mountaineering, and romping around on ice and mixed routes in the rockies. Very light, lots of features, an extremely easy to use. Of course that tag is a little high because it is arc'teryx, but this pack will last many a trip and is worth the cash!
