Peak Light 32L Backpack

It's simple math really. The less weight you have on your back, the easier the alpine ascent. And you can always go lighter with the Ortovox Peak Light 32L Backpack. Its 32L capacity and slim 2lb weight are already appealing to minimalist-minded mountaineers, but you can remove the top lid, waist belt, and even the supportive wire frame to shed even more weight down to a single pound. Ortovox makes nearly every single product with a bit of wool in it, and the Peak Light is no exception. Ortovox placed Swiss Wool virtually everywhere that would touch your body to stay comfortably dry under sweaty, icy, snowy situations. The rest of the back panel, as well as the shoulder straps and waist belt, have a bit of cushioning to keep you comfy as you make your ascent. Despite its weight-conscious, minimalist-minded design, the Peak Light still boasts a plethora of features to add convenience to any climbing or skiing adventure, like external attachments for climbing ropes, skis, helmets, axes, and trekking poles to leave more room inside the pack for layers, food, water, a map, and more.

Avy Equipment Storage Design Failure

I returned this product before using it

I was really stoked on this backpack looking at it, with my only concerns about avalanche equipment storage. When it arrived today, my concerns were validated. It seems like this backpack was designed with avalanche safety equipment as an afterthought. The loops are clumsy at best, right at the very bottom of the pack. Shovel blade fit is very awkward and a total space killer with this pack. I'll be returning it. If you will be carrying shovel/probe, this pack isn't for you.

Fine pack for fine folks

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
6' 1"

This is a superb backcountry skiing/mountaineering pack. The removable frame is key to using it as a summit bag on longer, multi-day missions and you roll it up and stow away until you are actually skiing/summiting. I'm very hesitant about zippers on packs as they break and usually at the worst time (e.g., the old Lowe-Alpine contour packs were great, but that zipper always failed), but at least here, the zipper on the pack is robust.

My favorite alpine backpack.

I've put it through the wringer

Yep, it's a versatile pack that feel great in a colder climate. The backpack is very durable, has all the needed straps. Everything is solid. 10/10 for quality. I am not a fan of the helmet attachment placement. It's on the outer wall of the pack,so when you drop it on a rocky surface, there is a chance of breaking your helmet (say bye to your adventure then). It would be much better to place that helmet attachment on top of the head of the pack. That's the only downside. Also, the size is perfect for domestic and international flight carry-on luggage requirements. I had no problems with a fully packed backpack on my trip from NYC to Almaty, Kazakhstan and back.
