Black Diamond Anarchist Daypack with Avalung (2012) - Unisex



Show Description

Holds it all for multi-day trips, guides, and snow pros. Big enough to swallow your gear, it has a dedicated pocket to keep avy gear at the ready. The suspension system balances the loads and doesn't impede movement when you're linking tight turns or making dainty kick turns up a steep face.

  • Built-in AvaLung® is an air pocket and breathing tube that provides a supply of oxygen from the snowpack and directs exhaled air away, thus preventing CO2 contamination. Integrated with the shoulder strap, it's been improved for better airflow and neater integration of the valve box so it doesn't press against your shoulder.
  • Made of tough 800-denier Velocity nylon.
  • ergoACTIV suspension with SwingArm shoulder straps keeps the load balanced and riding smoothly.
  • Large zippered backpanel and top load access gives you options for getting at your gear.
  • Diagonal and A-frame ski carrying options
  • Fixed top pocket with fleece-lined goggle pocket, tuck-away helmet holder and rope strap.
  • Dedicated avy-tool organizer pocket and ice tool PickPockets.
  • Insulated hydration sleeve.
