The lightweight: Minimalist alpine backpack for shorter mountain tours where every gram counts. It has a narrow profile that allows you to move freely. The ergonomic trail running-inspired shoulder straps provide superior freedom of movement in the shoulder area. We pared down any unnecessary technical features in favor of a low weight and minimalist appearance, features are aligned with the "fast and light" category. The lightweight hip strap is detachable. It’s also hydration system compatible. The main compartment can be opened or closed with one hand thanks to the innovative cover. Of course, it’s easy to compress the pack down quite small. You can attach your rope to the top and trekking poles or an ice pick can be attached at the front. The backpack was manufactured in accordance with the strict, eco-friendly bluesign® criteria.
