Of course, the Axis is designed with vertical endeavors in mind, but just imagine how many ice or rock pitches you could knock out in a day without your pack pulling you back to earth. The Axis has a fat-free design, forgoing the unnecessary bells and whistles in favor of ultra-functional features like PickPocket ice tool holders, crampon straps, and a three-point haul system if you end up pulling it up behind you. The SwingArm shoulder straps distribute the load evenly, and the vented, thermo-formed back panel keeps you cool and comfortable when you're pulling through the crux. Incorporate a tuck-away helmet holder, rope strap, and hydration compatibility to keep you well-watered on longer approaches, and you've got the fully-featured but remarkably trim Axis.
