Description

A backcountry pack that moves with you.

Arc'teryx designers poured untold amounts of energy into perfecting the lowered, wide, and flat shape of the Quintic 38L Backpack. This shape specifically accommodates the movement patterns of skiers and snowboarders. Stable and predictable when fully loaded with your avalanche safety gear and winter kit, this bag serves as the ideal companion for medium-range backcountry tours and skin treks that are a little closer to home.

  • Hypurcel foam and LD60 foam back panels cushion your upper and lower back in order to reduce stress under heavy loads
  • Low, wide, flat, streamlined shape keeps the bag's center of gravity as close to your body's center mass as possible so the bag moves with you while you ski or ride
  • Horizontal frame stays help this pack retain its shape, provide additional support for heavy loads, and improve frame strength
  • Side zip access allows you to reach into the main compartment while you're on the move
  • Top pocket designed specifically to hold skins and goggles for quick access
  • Tool kit compartment loads from the top and offers individual sleeves for each item
  • Highly durable shell materials resist heavy abrasion and punctures
  • Hydration hose slit and internal reservoir pocket makes it simple to carry water and route your hydration system (water bladder not included)
  • External carry straps offer multiple configurations for carrying skis or a snowboard
  • Helmet attachment accommodates either a full-face or half-shell helmet
  • Internal and external zippers are made from high quality #5 and #8 zippers, both designed to withstand heavy forces
  • Pro skier Eric Hjorleifson had a part in designing the Quintic 28, which is the smaller version of this pack

arcteryx fail

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

3 main issues:

1. The hydration pocket is super poorly designed! Arcteryx seems to have an issue with this - I bought the Arcteryx Bora 80L off BC a few years ago, and its hydration pocket is wacky too (in the lid of the pack. Why would you want your heavy water up so high?) In the Quintic, the hydration pocket doesn't have a strap to hold the top of the bladder up high, so the whole thing just kind of slumps to the bottom of the hydration pocket. Also, the hydration pocket has a vertical zipper along it, and no hole for the tube to escape! This means that you have to run the hose out of the top of the zipper, and over the course of a few hours, the hose works the zipper open.

2. The snowboard carry is poorly designed - there are no compression straps that actually cinch down on the width of your snowboard. It just kind of hangs in the loops, and can wiggle freely.

3. The A frame ski carry is poorly designed too! The bottom ski carry straps tie directly in to the waist belt (presumably to transfer more weight to your hips as you hike.) The non-adjustable-length ski carry straps then attach to the center of the back panel of the pack. If you fully stuff the pack with gear, the un-adjustable straps aren't long enough to allow you to wrap the hip belt around your waist! (It ends up pulling the hip belt away from your waist, and it bunches up, all ugly.

redeeming qualities: looks like the fabric is waterproof. looks cool. don't buy this pack.

Does this have attachment points for ice...

Does this have attachment points for ice axe?

Responded on

It would be pretty easy to attach one ice axe, but if you are technical climbing with two, I don't know where you'd find a place for both.
