Forecaster 35L Backpack

The North Face built the durable and lightweight Forecaster 35L backpack with ski mountaineers and snow forecasters in mind. Thoughtful storage features designed to keep you protected in the backcountry, mean this technical alpine pack will help you perform even on the most rigorous mountain terrain. With a 35L capacity, it’s big enough to store all your technical gear plus extra layers, lunch, and emergency essentials. A quick-access avy-tool pocket, alongside a mesh helmet holder, ice-tool keeper, and a rope carry system keep your gear in place so you can focus on the important stuff. A removable top-lid, hipbelt, and multiple ski-carry options offer customizable adaptability to make the bag work best for you. When a bag is built with your goals in mind, it’s easy to perform at your best, so stash some snacks and gear up for an awesome day in the alpine.
