You don’t limit yourself to one activity in the alpine. Why should your pack? Hit the trail, swarm that crag, or swoosh those freshies. With a 40L capacity and an internal stay, the Aria 40 lets you go equipment-intensive without sacrificing carrying comfort.

  • Thermomoulded back panel, ergonomic shoulder straps, internal stay, and a padded hipbelt allow efficient, comfortable load transfer
  • Torso length adjusts for a precise fit. Ranges are 38.1 to 43cm on the short standard and 45.7 to 50.8cm on the standard long
  • Front stretch mesh pocket with vertical zip holds your shell or fleece at the ready
  • Stretch mesh shove-it pocket lets you lose those layers as you warm up, without losing momentum
  • One top-access main zippered compartment with stuff pocket on flap interior
  • Outside pocket on main compartment opens clamshell-style to access a mesh zip pocket with key clip and a mesh sleeve – excellent for keeping safety gear organized and accessible
