Approaching the Cirque of the Unclimables, the Mammut Heron Pro 70 Backpack is super-rigged for your heavy base camp weight with a pivoting belt that optimizes balance with a minimum of effort even when traversing exposed terrain. After customizing the fit with is changeable Butterfly(TM) aluminum 8 mm frame, 4-level back system, and angle adjustment of the hip belt, your big load doesn't seem so unreasonable. Topped to the gills you've extended the adjustable and removable lid, used the removable bottom compartment, and slung a layering top and essentials off the daisy chain gear carrier. Tensioning the compression straps at the side front, gear stays put as you dig into the large front pocket, 2 stretch side pockets, stowable bottle holder, and pocket on the hip belt for a sundry of essentials during a lunch break. Securing the 2 ice tool attachments, you grab your trekking poles off their attachment, pull the pocketed round-shaped lid and convert is to a lumbar for a ridgeline reconnaissance. Thankfully it's not too much farther, and everything will jettison out of the Heron Pro 70's large front-access main compartment for your extended base camp.
