Large touring backpack for alpinists on the go year round on multi-day adventures in the mountains, on high altitude treks, ski trips or climbing. The Rupal 45+ alpine backpack features truly impressive versatility: The lightweight hip belt can be removed. When you're on the approach, the belt helps transfer the load; remove it for greater freedom of movement when you start climbing. A large hydration bladder compartment can accommodate a shovel in winter, while the handle and probe can be attached separately. Ergonomic shoulder straps offer an unrestricted range of movement in the FoM (Freedom of Movement) version – even overhead, when you're climbing for example. An additional zip at the bottom in the front allows quick access to the main compartment. The aluminum frame of the alpine backpack can be individually adjusted or removed if necessary. A rope garage can be found under the height-adjustable lid (5 to 6 l extra volume). Two ice tools and a helmet can be attached on the outside of the pack. Side holsters and compression straps provide support for skis or trekking poles. In addition, on the front are two straps with loops to which you can attach other equipment. The VAUDE Green Shape label stands for environmentally-friendly, functional products made from sustainable and bluesign® certified materials.
