Providing the extra space and features for hut trips and ski mountaineering, the Ortovox Peak II 42 Backpack also works well once the snow melts and you just want to trek through the blooming alpine. With straps for skis, ice tools, and climbing gear, you can load up this alpine pack for skiing big lines in the spring. But with its top-loading design and compression, you can easily use the Peak II 29 for an overnighter during wildflower season.
With the Ortovox Peak 42 Backpack has a specially designed hip belt and the ergonomic, S-shaped shoulder belts assure that the load is transferred optimally to the pelvic bones and that the shoulder musculature is relieved. The "O-FLEX-FRAME" is a 3-D back system that is flexible and can be individually adjusted. Consequently, the backpack perfectly carries to the body without wagging back and forth and offers freedom of movement when descending or climbing. At the same time, it provides optimum ventilation. The main compartment is loaded from the top and is secured with a snow flap with double toggle and compression belt. As is characteristic of Ortovox, the spacious compartment on the front panel provides quick access to the avalanche probe and shovel.
