Product Description

Rupal 45+ - Alpine backpack

Versatile, very large backpack for mountaineering

  • robust and water repellent
  • compartments for hydration system and avalanche safety equipment
  • offset for climate neutrality; attachment points for rope, ice tools and skis
One for all: versatile backpack for multi-day tours and year-round use for climbing, mountaineering and ski touring. With a compact fit and excellent stability thanks to the full contact back (Synergy Mold Light with moldable aluminum frame). The ergonomic shoulder straps offer great freedom of movement in the shoulder area. The flat, short hipwings don't get in the way when you're climbing and wearing a harness. The touring backpack is distinguished by a sleek look without extra bells and whistles. The material is robust and exceptionally water repellent, the floor is waterproof thanks to taped seams. The height-adjustable lid offers cleverly compartmentalized storage space for fast access to your necessities. Underneath, there's an attachment and space for your rope. The hydration system compartment inside has more space than usual - you can store an avalanche shovel there for winter trips, and slide-in compartments for shovel handle and probe are also at hand. Two ice tools and a helmet can be attached to the exterior. (The integrated helmet holder can be stowed in the lid.) Side holsters and compression straps hold skis securely. Two straps at the front also hold additional items (with a carabineer or gear strap). The Rupal 45+ is designed for mountaineers who want to cover a wide range of Alpine undertakings with one backpack.

This protects you from the rain and keeps the planet clean. Regular reapplication is necessary for permanent waterproofing and stain resistance.
