    Haute Route Short 30L Backpack

    Pack up your Ortovox Haute Route Short 30L Backpack with all your backcountry essentials (including plenty of chocolatey snacks) and hit the skin track for some early morning pow turns. The 30-liter carrying capacity is the perfect size for a day mission, with a low-profile design that you won't mind wearing around the resort when you want to go halfsies on the day.

    Access your water, extra layers, or gallon-sized bag of chocolate-covered espresso beans from the convenient back panel zipper, and stash your safety gear in the dedicated front pocket. The top zippered pocket holds your goggles, phone, or map, and the ski and snowboard carry makes it quick and easy to throw your boards on your back when you're booting up something sketchy. Most lady shredders have experienced the frustration of trying to find a ski pack that actually fits properly, so Ortovox's short back system is designed specifically for ladies or those with smaller frames, with hip and shoulder straps adapted to the female build.

    Ortovox 32L Haute Route excellent

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    Fit:True to size
    Height5` 10"
    Weight165 lbs

    I'm a 4 season bicycle commuter in urban Kansas, and this pack is the finest I've ever owned. I've packed it full (32L) of food and strapped a 2 1/2 gal jug of water to the outside, road 10 miles in the snow, headwind both ways, and the pack was wonderfully comfortable. I use it almost daily to work, to the gym, to the store, and its held up perfectly, with no problems at all over 18 months. Great piece of equipment.

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

    I normally don't do reviews, but absolutely love everything about this pack! I used it for my first time a few weeks ago, and it lives up to its hype. I am short so it's harder to find a pack that fits just right without it feeling uncomfortable when skinning and heavy, with shorter backs in mind when making this pack it was perfect. I also love that it has a designated outside compartment for avi gear and helmet. I ordered 3 different packs when ordering this one and found this one to be the lightest with all the wants/needs! 10/10 highly recommend.

    Thanks for the review, Alexa!

    What were the other two bags you compared it to?

    Excellent Daily Driver

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    This is a great backpack for day tours where you don't want your airbag pack, but don't need to bring a larger technical pack either. It's clean, simple, and has all of the features you need- without extra fluff. A quick note on fit: I'm 5'7/130 lbs and I wear the hip belt as tight as it can go. The bag is extremely comfortable for me, but I'm not sure how suitable it would be for small women. I am impressed by how much actually fits inside. The safety pocket is plenty large enough for a 3m probe, large shovel, and crampons. It's also the most obvious zipper on the backpack to pull- a feature I wish my partners' bags had, too. It is worth mentioning that the only way to access the main compartment is from the back panel, which felt weird at first. Ortovox makes this easily manageable with top and front pockets that accommodate everything you might need to access quickly such as goggles, sunglasses, snacks, and a wind layer. The stowable rope carry strap, diagonal ski carry, and mesh helmet holder are really well-designed features. The loop for the diagonal ski carry is adjustable, so you don't have to worry about whether or not your pow slayers are going to fit. The bag also comes with extra buckle straps, which you can add to any of the five loops on the front panel as lashing points for skis, crampons, etc. The fabric seems durable, but in a few long climbs with my skis diagonally mounted I have torn a small hole in the front panel. I am also skeptical of how the front-panel carry loops will hold up over time. Overall, this is a well built and comfortable backpack for mid-winter day tours or light glacier skiing. It is, however, limited in scope by it's size and simple suspension system. I'm excited to bring it out on hut trips and day tours, but I'll probably leave it behind on springtime mountaineering objectives.

    The Best Ski Pack Available

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I have been blown away by this pack from the minute I saw it. I was looking for a pack that would carry my skis diagonally or on the side (A-Frame). This pack does both incredibly well. It is made of the highest quality materials, unbelievably comfortable and have all (almost all) of the bells and whistles you need. More on that later. The outside pocket carries your shovel and probe. The large compartment is accessed from the back of the pack, and is large enough to carry essencials (not too big...not too small). The middle zipper area is large enough for a pair of gloves, hat, whatever you may need at a moments notice. (NOTE: I do wish this packet with fleece lined to protect my goggles). The options to carry other items on the outside of the pack is where this backpack shines. To carry your skis diagonally, there are two loops tucked inside zipper compartment, and to strap your helmet to your pack, you open a zipper at the bottom of the pack and pull out the mesh sling. Perfect size for strapping on your helmet. I love this pack, but almost don't want to let everyone know how great it is, because then everyone will have one. Best piece of gear I have bought in a long time, and the best ski pack I have ever used. So good...now my wife wants the Haute route 30s. Thanks Ortovox!


    Shoulder sleeve for hydration?

    Hi there! It looks like this pack does not have a built in hydration sleeve in the shoulder strap. Looks like the hose comes out of a little port located at the top of the back panel, in between the two shoulder straps, and then you run the bladder hose down the front of the straps. Cheers!
