The Arc'teryx Altra 85 L Backpack is an expedition sized pack that carries heavy loads comfortably for long periods over rough terrain. All packs in the Altra family feature a Load Transfer Disc that pivots to increase agility and stability on rough terrain. The Altra 85 also uses 210D nylon ripstop throughout the body of the pack. This material is a high density single ripstop fabric coated with silicone to shed moisture and increase waterproofness. Incredibly durable and tear resistant, this pack is ready for anything.

Bring the Arc'teryx Altra 85 pack on your next extended-range sojourn. This cavernous pack combines an advanced suspension system with a sturdy frame and light materials. Breathable suspension system is carefully designed to create a direct link between spine, suspension and bag to improve comfort and range of motion while reducing fatigue. Suspension is bonded directly to the pack body for comfort and stability; features twin removable aluminum stays for reliable load support. Anatomically shaped shoulder straps feature a core layer of perforated, air-permeable foam lined with breathable mesh for next-to-the-skin comfort. Shoulder straps adjust both vertically and horizontally for a personalized fit. Rotating Load Transfer Disc(TM) lets the hipbelt pivot, following your natural movements for agility and stability. Thermoformed, triple-density hipbelt promotes airflow and evaporative cooling. Removable and expandable top lid comes with 2 zippered compartments and a map pocket. Extendable collar with drawcord adds capacity to the main compartment for handling large loads. Top-loading pack design also features a full-length, inverted-U zipper, allowing quick access to the main compartment through the front panel. Features a hydration-reservoir sleeve with port and hose clip for the drinking tube (reservoir sold separately). Front kangaroo pocket is perfect for stashing gear you may need in a hurry. 2 stretch-mesh side pockets with elastic drawcords secure your water bottles or snacks. 4 compression straps and padded compression wings let you cinch down your load for jostle-free carrying; micro daisy chains let you lash on gear. Silicone- and polyurethane-coated pack body is made of 100-denier Invista HD Mini Ripstop(TM) nylon and 210-denier Ripstorm(TM) nylon. Pack base is made of burly, 420-denier Invista HD plain weave nylon.


If your backpacking trips require you to measure the time in weeks and count the miles in the hundreds, it's probably time to invest in the Arc'teryx Altra 85 Backpack. The C2 Suspension System reduces fatigue and load movement by keeping the pack close to your body, which allows you to move more efficiently and safely on technical terrain with a heavy load. The top lid can be extended to accommodate extra-large loads, and the burly silicone-coated nylon fabrics provide unmatched durability.
