Product description
Even if you're Ueli Steck, you can't carry the wrong pack and expect to reach all your objectives smoothly and easily (actually, Ueli could probably climb K2 in 17 minutes toting a duffel bag, but still.) For serious mountaineers and climbers who aren't quite as nuts as Ueli, Mountain Hardwear made the Direttissima 50 Backpack, which lets you customize the support, weight, and volume so you can use it as an approach pack or a small, light bag for the summit push.
When you've set up base camp, pop out the body-conforming HardWave framesheet, aluminum stay, padded waist belt, and top pocket to shave a serious amount of weight, and attach the thin webbing belt for lightweight support on those tough technical pitches. The Direttissima comes with tons of gear-carrying options, from a zippered back compartment to a crampon stash pocket to lash points and compression straps, so you can always have what you need accessible, and is made of rugged nylon and X-Ply Ripstop, so squeeze chimneys, crampon points, and tree branches won't poke holes in your hopes and dreams.
  • Removable HardWave suspension system with removable padded waistbelt
  • Removable stay and top pocket
  • Load range of 25-50 pounds
  • Top access
  • Pole/axe carry system
  • Rugged nylon ripstop fabrics
  • Large zippered front pocket and crampon pocket
  • Lash points and compression straps

Einfach aber gut!

Ich habe den Rucksack ausschließlich für mehrtägige Trekkingtouren oder für Hochtouren bei denen viel Equipment benötigt wird. Für eine Tagestour ist er allerdings viel zu groß.
Pro: Das Tragesystem des Rucksacks ist sehr einfach, bietet aber dennoch einen extrem guten Tragekomfort. Er ist sehr leicht, bietet viel Platz. Besonders gut finde ich das Steigeisenfach. Auch im Innenbereich ist der Rucksack mit einem großen Hauptfach und einem kleinen Frontfach sowie einem Deckelfach recht einfach aber völlig ausreichend aufgebaut (sehr viel Platz im Hauptfach). Der Deckel kann abgenommen werden was hin und wieder vorteilhaft ist.
Kontra: Der Deckel des Rucksacks sitzt leider erst bei voll beladenem Hauptfach richtig gut. Bei geringer Beladung wackelt er ziemlich frei oben herum. Des Weiteren ist das out-dry-System, welches den Rucksack angeblich wasserdicht macht nur bedingt lobenswert. Bei langanhaltendem Regen sollte man lieber ein Rain-Cover verwenden.
Zusammenfassend lässt sich sagen, dass dieser Rucksack aber allen Ansprüchen gerecht wird. Besonders der Tragekomfort hat mich sehr beeindruck.
