Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Low Alpine Alpine Attack 45:55 Backpack is a classic all-round technical pack designed to excel in winter for ski touring and demanding mountaineering trips. The Alpine Attack 45:55 Backpack has a lightweight, removable frame, an extendable lid, a compression system, and a comfortable air-mesh back. This pack is made of Trishield fabric, which is lightweight and durable.
A successful trip is about more than just getting you to where you need to be. It means getting you and your gear there, safely and comfortably. Lowe Alpine designed the Alpine Attack 45:55 Backpack with just that in mind. It's chock full of features to make your life easier, even when you're making things as difficult as possible. The Alpine Attack features glove-friendly buckles and straps so that you can make adjustments and transitions when the weather turns nasty, without risk of frostbite. Because there are times when you're going to need to wear a climbing harness, and packs just don't sit that comfortably over them, a stowable hip belt was added that allows the hip belt to be tucked back into the pack when you're wearing a climbing harness. The new award-winning HeadLocker axe attachment system will allow you to attach even the most new-fangled of leashless climbing tools. Never again do you need to get turned away mid-route by a steep section of ice for which you weren't able to bring the proper tools. Those tough choices are now a thing of the past. The movable strap under the lid allows you to reposition your attached rope or crampons, allowing access to the pack without having to constantly remove and reattach your vital equipment. The less time spent in transition means faster, safer climbing. Finally, because everyone knows that skiing down is more fun than walking down, Lowe Alpine added a versatile ski-carrying system that means you can easily carry your skis on the way up and shred pow on the way down.
