Show Description

Stripped back to the basics, the Alpha FL 45 is capable of carrying a full day's essentials or minimalist gear on multi-day trips. It uses Arc'teryx's signature attention to detail and craftmanship to create a hardwearing pack for climbers and skiers going fast and light. Instead of a bulky traditional lid, it has a combination drawstring and roll-top closure so you can cinch it down for small loads or expand it to carry larger ones. Lots of lash points, a rope strap, dual ice axe loops, and crampon bungees mean you can customize the pack to carry the exact gear you need for each alpine adventure.

  • N400-AC² main fabric with fully sealed seams and Advanced Composition Construction coating is totally waterproof and resistant to abrasion.
  • White interior makes it easier to find items inside the pack.
  • Watertight external zippers keep moisture from sneaking in.
  • Lightly padded foam back panel provides structure and support without excess weight.
  • Thermoformed shoulder straps use an air permeable fabric for comfort next to skin.
  • Wide webbing waistbelt minimizes sway on technical routes.
  • Roll-top closure seals out weather and eliminates the traditional bulky top lid.
  • Expandable drawstring collar lets you increase pack volume to carry more gear.
  • Dual-haul loops double as carry handles and means you use the pack as a haul bag or clip it off to an anchor.
  • Dual ice axe loops.
  • Front bungee attachment system for crampons.
  • 6 front lash points and 4 side lash points to attach extra gear or your own accessory straps.
  • Top compression straps holds a rope.
