    A versatile touring pack for all your backcountry endeavors.

    Whether you're headed out on a hut-to-hut trip or a big tour in your home range, the Arva Rescuer Pack will securely and comfortably carry the gear you need when riding wild snow. This 32-liter pack will easily carry your lunch, puffy coat, shovel, probe, and snow study tools. A dedicated avy tool pocket makes for quick access to your shovel and probe in the event of an emergency, while a goggle pocket stows your sunglasses or goggles for the skintrack and descent. The design fits the pack close to your back for a comfortable feel, and the anatomically shaped hip belt keeps the weight at your waist, so your shoulders stay fresh for the schuss. Retractable straps give riders the option of a vertical snowboard carry and skiers a diagonal. Two additional slots at the side allow you to carry your skis in an A-frame, and an ice axe loop securely carries your self-arrest tool while you make the approach to the alpine.

    No snowboard carry

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The pack itself is great for the most part but mine came apparently missing the additional straps for the snowboard carry. Not sure if it actually has one or not because I don't see how it would work even if I had extra straps.

    Anyways called ARVA and they said it does have a snowboard carry and should have extra straps for it. Called around December and a few times since then and still haven't received the straps.

    I've had the pack for awhile and been using it since I thought I'd get the straps. Now I'm stuck with a bag that doesn't have the main use I wanted it for... snowboard / snowshoe carry.

    Packs well and comfortable; sizing off.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought the ARVA 32 rescuer at the end of the last season and have had it out 4 times thus far. Considering mine is pink & blue, I'm pretty sure it was a women's version, but I'm not seeing different versions on the site now.
    I love the way the ARVA packs, as what I want is accessible and organized. I don't love the color scheme (pink & bright blue accents on black), but it was better than white, and the more important elements, like how it holds stuff, are spot on.
    The one sizing piece that's caught my attention and I'm trying to find a way to mitigate is that the shoulder straps sit wide on me, so it always feels like one of them is slipping off, even with sternum strap tight and shoulder straps cinched as much as is reasonable. I'm working on how to bring them closer to one another at the top without compromising the aspects I like, but still a work in progress. For sizing reference, I'm 5'4" and generally wear size ~4. I don't recall if the pack came in different sizes, or if I'd gotten a smaller size if it would have accounted for a narrower upper body than my current one does.
    So, overall I like how it packs, its accessibility, and it's very comfortable other than the annoyance (but not actual discomfort) of the wide shoulder straps.

    Awesome touring pack for the Wasatch

      Perfect for the Wasatch. Or anywhere else really. Plenty of storage with a shovel and probe specific pocket and a few more for goggles and extra layers. Also has an awesome helmet carry that stores away very stealth-like. And, most importantly, it has a super comfy fit, and there is plenty of adjustability in the straps.
