Serious mountain climbs demand well-designed and constructed kit; functionality above all else is paramount and the Torque 40 exemplifies this. Developed in conjunction with leading British mountain guides and outdoor activists, the Torque 40 takes its lead from the Medusa 32, not only in its extra load carrying capacity but also in its technical and highly specified features.
The Torque 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.
