Use the Arc'teryx Men's Altra 35 Backpack for your gear when you plan on bagging a few Colorado fourteeners during the summer months. This strong, durable, weather-resistant pack features a C2 suspension system to help keep weight to a minimum and provide a stable, comfortable, and supportive pack that carries your essentials and then some during arduous feats.
DESCRIPTION The smaller volume Altra packs, (Altra 33 through 50) keep weight to a minimum by using the efficient C2 (Composite Construction) system. The larger volume Altra packs (Altra 62 through 85) have a Load Transfer Disc(TM) that pivots to increase agility and stability on rough terrain and combine the C2 (Composite Construction) suspension with Gridlock(TM) shoulder straps that adjust for custom fit.Trekking Near or Far Composite Construction (C2) eliminates back panel layers to reduce weight without compromising on structure or comfort. The pear-shaped Altra design holds the pack close to the body, minimizing load movement and backward pull for extended comfort and energy efficient movement under weight.Thick Skin All Arc'teryx packs use premium fabrics. The textiles used in the Altra series are chosen for durability. 210D nylon 6,6 ripstop fabric is tear-resistant and long lasting; heavier weight 500D aty nylon 6,6 protects high wear areas and resists contamination from dirt, snow and water pick-up.Suspension Details In larger volumes, 62-65L, 72-75L and 85L Altra packs offer full adjustment of the shoulder straps with GridLockTM, a unique system that adjusts straps for both width and height. In larger volumes, 62-65L, 72-75L and 85L Altra packs offer the rotating Load Transfer Disc(TM) that distributes weight to the hips on uneven terrain.Efficiency Space efficient compartments, one-handed timesaving closures and pocket configurations make Altras the lightest weight, fully featured bags in their class. Wingman(TM) side pockets wrap over the hip and are accessible without taking off the pack.PACK MATERIALS Pack Body: 210D nylon 6,6 ripstop is a high density single ripstop fabric coated with silicone to shed moisture and increase waterproofness.
