Alps Mountaineering's Red Rock 34 Backpack has a traditional construction that hearkens back to the days of Kor and Ingalls placing car parts in Castleton as a form of climbing protection, or when the Grand Canyon first became a national park. Despite having an external frame, the Red Rock has all the modern updates necessary for any minimalist overnighter, including a hydration reservoir, lashing systems for sleeping bags or tents, and comfy padding at the shoulders, waist, and back for optimal comfort on the trail.


Designed for shorter backpackers, scouts and youth, the ALPS Mountaineering Red Rock pack offers the breathable comfort of an external frame along with a hold-open bar for easy loading and access.


Its important for everyone to pull their own weight on the trail, and with Alps Mountaineerings Red Rock External-Frame 34-Liter Pack, its easy for everyone from the youngest to the oldest to do just that. Telescoping frame, padded shoulder straps with multiple positions and an adjustable padded waistbelt allow it to fit torsos between 13 to 18 and waist sizes between 20 and 40. Vented lumbar support keeps the load riding comfortably, while providing air circulation to keep you cool. Top-load design features a hold-open bar to make loading and unloading a breeze. Lycra-spandex-covered suspension straps enhance balance on the trail. Multiple zippered side pockets and a stretch pocket secure essentials, while a large mesh water-bottle pocket keeps your hydration close at hand. Lashing system lets you strap gear to the exterior. Heavy-duty carry handle makes it easy to lift and handle in camp. 100% polyester. Imported. Color: Red Rock. Gender: Unisex. Type: Hiking Backpacks.

The ALPS Mountaineering Caldera 4500 is a great internal to take along on all your backcountry treks. The Caldera was designed with features to make your hike more enjoyable. Beyond the easy to adjust suspension system, front and side pockets, and hydration pocket and port, you can also find side compression straps, an internal horizontal divider to arrange your gear, and extra large #10 zippers on the lower door. All of these features will ensure that you're ready for a successful and organized hike. So now you're ready for your trip and your pack is full, but you still have a few things to take along... don't worry! The top of the Caldera pack extends with a spindrift collar, so you can "over pack." The top pocket adjusts up and down to keep it in the correct position and we've included an "Over the Top" compression strap to stabilize your extra gear. When it's time to drop the internal and adventure onto a smaller trail, don't worry about bringing along an additional small fanny pack, because our top lid converts to a fanny pack. If that's not enough, the rain cover is included! You don't have to worry about spending additional money on accessories; you can find it all in the Caldera. This internal is a great example of what ALPS Mountaineering is all about... giving you great gear at an affordable price.
