Product description
Go ahead, buy three different packs for different sections of your ascent?good luck carrying them all. If you'd rather not strap packs onto your packs, you can just bring the lightweight Mountain Hardwear South Col 70 Outdry Backpack, which is basically three packs in one. It's got plenty of space for a two-day winter mountaineering trip, and strips down to the basics to help on the summit push—you can pop off the top pocket, slide out the padded Hardwave suspension framesheet and aluminum stay, reduce the padded waist belt to a simple nylon webbing belt, and go fast 'n' light all the way to the top. 
When you're carrying a heavier load, leave the suspension in and walk cross-country in comfort. Along with rugged nylon fabrics, the South Col is kitted out with an OutDry waterproof membrane, which will keep all the gear in the main pocket dry as a bone, and features a front zip pocket that's easily accessible and maintains its volume, even if the bag is stuffed full. There are tons of lash points and straps for carrying skis, ice axes, and poles, an easy-access crampon stash pocket, and a top skirt that extends to give you an extra 300 cubic inches of space. Never bring two packs again.

  • Removable Alpine HardWave suspension, aluminum stay, padded waistbelt, and top pocket
  • Small/Medium fits torsos from 16-19 inches
  • Carries up to 60lbs
  • Top access
  • Durablie nylon fabrics with OutDry waterproof membrane
  • Front gear pocket and easy-access crampon pocket
  • Ski, ice axe, and pole carry
  • Compression straps

Interessantes Konzept, leider nicht ausgereift

Ein komplett wasserdichter Trekkingrucksack ist scheinbar der Heilige Gral der Rucksackindustrie. Auch dieser Rucksack kommt dem ein wenig näher(laminierte Nähte etc.), wäre da nicht die herkömmliche Öffnung des Rucksacks nach oben. Hier wäre ein Rollverschluss sehr viel besser gewesen und warum laminiert man einen Rucksack wasserdicht, wenn dann doch von oben Wasser eindringen kann.

Weiterhin, gefällt die Tasche für das Trinksystem nicht, da sie sich ganz außen am Rucksack befindet, weit von Rücken entfernt.

Fazit: Wenn der Rucksack einen Rollverschluss ( somit äußerst wasser- nicht nur regendicht) und ein internes Rücken-nahes Trinksystem-Fach erhielte wäre er nahezu perfekt. Daher noch 4 von 5 Sternen, weil Potential ist vorhanden.

P.S. Gibt es überhaupt einen Trekkingrucksack, welcher komplett dicht ist, wie beispielsweise die etwas kleineren ORTLIEB-Rucksäcke und auch ein gutes Tragesystem besitzt?

Dieser Rucksack hat keine Tasche für ein Trinksystem, das ist einfach nur eine Tasche.
