Product description
If you frequently find yourself on long, technical, and committing rock and ice routes where you need to have plenty of gear with you, or serious ski mountaineering expeditions where getting up is at least as serious as getting down, you need a pack like the Arc'teryx Alpha FL 45 Backpack. Made of water-resistant ripstop nylon with fully-taped seams, the FL 45 features a RollTop collar and top compression strap that eliminate the weight of a traditional 'brain' design and extend to give you an additional 800 cubic inches of storage, all while remaining extremely watertight. You'll probably be wearing it all day, so Arc'teryx made sure that the high-density foam back panel provides plenty of support and is extremely comfortable, and made the thermo-formed shoulder straps from Hypercell foam to relieve pressure points and distribute weight evenly.
Even though it's small and incredibly streamlined, the FL 45 has most of the gadgetry you'd expect to find on a fully-featured mountaineering pack. Dual haul loops let you drag it up behind you if you so desire, while side loops hold your ice axes and the hip belt has clip points for gloves and spare gear. There are six lash points on the front to make strapping gear on a breeze, lash points for ski-carrying, and additional bungees to hold a spare layer securely. There's even a watertight security pocket to hold your valuables, and a reflective white interior to help you find small items. If you don't make it to the top, you know it's not your packs' fault.
  • Water-resistant, super-durable fabric with fully-taped seams
  • High-density foam back panel and foam straps
  • Weatherproof RollTop extension collar with compression strap
  • Haul and ice axe loops
  • Waistbelt with clip points
  • Front lash points with bungee system (ski carry straps not included)
  • Reflective white interior

Extrem leicht&groß aber mit Kompromissen, 699G

War auf der Suche nach einem sehr leichten&wasserdichten Rucksack für lange Hochtoren unter 1KG
Mit den angaben viel die Wahl nicht schwer, es gibt nichts leichteres in der Klasse!
Großes Manko sind die Befestigungsmöglichkeiten da hat der Hersteller falsch gespart, seitlich keine Riemen für Stöcke/Flasche ect. das wären 20Gr. mehr !!!!
Pickel&Steigeisenhalter ok.
Deckelfach/Kartentasche wäre auch gut für größere Accessoires, erspart langes suchen. So regnet es in die kleine Öffnung rein, aber Einrollverschluss ist ja dicht.
So wäre es dann ein perfekter Rucksack mit ca 800Gr., damit kann jeder leben.
