Show Description

A streamlined climbing pack for fast and light alpine ascents. Black Diamond's ergoACTIV suspension system provides unparalleled freedom of movement for technical rock and ice routes. When weight is at a premium, the pack's padded hipbelt, frame, framesheet and top lid are all removable to convert it to a stripped down, ultra-light summit pack. The 30L size is ideal for intense car-to-car objectives or minimalist bivies en route.

  • Main fabric is nailhead nylon reinforced with panels of welded nylon for abrasion resistance.
  • ergoACTIV hipbelt uses a proprietary ball joint for mobility in all directions.
  • Thermoformed backpanel for lightweight comfort and breathability.
  • Top loading with spindrift collar, roll top closure and tuck away rope strap.
  • Side compression straps provide volume adjustment.
  • Floating lid is removable and has an external zippered pocket.
  • Ice-tool PickPockets provide tool attachment for technical alpine and ice ascents.
  • Removable 20mm crampon straps.
  • Removable padded hipbelt with fixed webbing belt for stripped down summit pack.
  • Hipbelt gear loops for rock gear or ice screws.
  • Hydration system compatible for hydrating on the move.
