Designed for wearing with a harness and big mountain activities

 

Overview

This is a proper mountain pack perfect for Alpine routes in NZ , and may also be used for multiday Ski Touring.

It was developed in conjunction with Montane’s lead athlete and big wall climber Andy Kirkpatrick, leading British mountain guides and outdoor activists, the Fast Alpine 40 exudes functionality.

The Fast Alpine 40 is designed to carry heavy climbing equipment to the base of a route and can compress down tightly when relatively empty. It works perfectly in conjunction with a technical climbing harness and is robust enough to cope with contact against abrasive rock surfaces.

Most importantly, it is comfortable on long routes when dynamic climbing manoeuvres are required.

Weight: 1.350 kg
