The Black Diamond Alias Pack sheds all non-essential components to provide you with a lightweight, streamlined bag for backcountry skiing. This Black Diamond pack includes A-frame and diagonal ski carry options as well as a shovel pocket, but other than that it's simply a durable, basic bag with a lid. What do you really need but a sack to carry your food, clothes, and avy gear for a sweet day in the goods'
A streamlined, lightweight top-loading ski pack for gram counters, the Alias has a pro-level avy-tools sleeve designed to organize your probe, shovel and snow saw, as well as a zippered top pocket with slots for keeping all of your accoutrements dialed in.
For long tours and technical ski-mountaineering objectives where the ascent is as involved as the ski down, the Black Diamond Alias Pack combines lightweight, technical prowess with winter-specific functionality. Black Diamond's reACTIV suspension moves with you, whether you're hop-turning down a steep shoot or booting a knife-edge ridge. The tuck-away rope strap and ice-tool PickPockets provide security for all your gear during both the approach and the descent. 2,136 cubic inches of space (medium) at 3 lbs. total weight.
