good alpine climbing pack?

Best Answer Responded on

The Arrakis was originally designed as a ski pack, but does have a bit of a fan club in the alpine climbing world. Reasons: super durable, totally waterproof (maybe not submersible), super comfy harness system with a rotating hipbelt, and a narrow profile. It is a bit heavier than some of the Arc'teryx alpine specific pack like the Khazri and Khamsin, but certainly works in the alpine-going up or down.

the Naos 55 was design for more that area, same roll top and load disk, but taller and with a trad top lid. They nixed it how ever because it was the first pack with a load disk and the full water tight material in the narrower format was harder to pack
