The folks at Lowe Alpine know that climbers spend their days moving in the mountains instead of wasting away at a corporate desk, which is why they gave the Crag Attack II Backpack an affordable price tag and a complete range of performance-driven features. The AdaptiveFit harness allows you to comfortably shoulder up to 35 pounds of climbing gear and the slim alpine profile allows you to move over technical rock, ice, and snow with minimal restriction.
The Crag Attack, a favorite pack aimed at entry-level climbers and mountaineers, has been substantially improved for 2013. The fabric has been upgraded from polyester to our tough and well-respected ripstop 2RN Nylon. Hydration compatible, this pack gives you options for hydration (reservoir not included). The SOS panel guides you in the emergency code standards needed to communicate the proper messages at the time of need. The key clip will assure you haven't misplaced your keys. The Mitt-friendly SR buckles are awesome when you don't want to remove your hand protection. Mitt-friendly zip pulls will put smiles on your face when you realize you don't need to sacrifice warmth to access the pack. The internal valuables pocket keeps things nice and organized. The wand pockets give you additional options of storage. The Ixe Axe carry gives a stable and suitable option for carrying the axes when not in use. The ski carry is the best part.... what are you going to do when you get to the top of the mountain?
