    Apex Guide 45L Backpack

    The Apex Guide series is Salewa's collection of technical mountaineering backpacks, and the Apex Guide 45L Backpack is the largest in that series fit for full days with alpine starts, steep approaches, strenuous ascents, and technical descents in mind. Its Contact Flow Fit system promotes ventilation and lightness for the actively engaged mountaineer. The shoulder straps and waist belt split in two to reduce weight and provide better airflow. The back panel has EVA pods for slight cushioning, and 3D ventilation holes help keep you cool while sweating on skin tracks.

    The Apex Guide has a plethora of external attachments fit for actual guides. There's a parallel ski attachment, an ice axe attachment with a plastic protector, and a strap at the top for ropes. Inside, the Apex Guide has compartments for a probe, shovel, and hydration reservoir, and the hydration reservoir has a port for the tube to feed through on the outside.
