Mountain Hardwear Windpack
Part of Mountain Hardwear’s Objective Series (for climbing, mountaineering, and now snow sports), the medium-volume Windpack is a multi-day ski touring and trekking pack. It features quick-release, side compression straps for ski carries and a removable front pocket/daypack. The suspension system is made up of a HDPE frame sheet with a full perimeter aluminum rod, which can be shaped to the user’s back, a compression-molded foam back panel, a fixed padded hip belt, and padded shoulder straps. A second aluminum perimeter rod on the front compression pocket maintains the pack’s shape and offers load control.
The Windpack also features a bottle opener/tool toggle for attaching gear, a detachable top pocket with three storage compartments, an externally accessible hydration pocket, biner loops, and a small pocket on the hip belt.
