Gripped - - USED AND ABUSED -

Con­structed from a fully wa­ter­proof outer fab­ric, with a wa­ter­proof roll-top col­lar in­side, the Arc’ter yx Al­pha FL 30 is es­sen­tially a dr ybag with straps and tool at­tach­ments. It is an ex­ceed­ingly sim­ple pack that car­ries in­cred­i­bly well, the sim­ple shoul­der straps ab­sorb­ing the load and a web­bing hip belt tak­ing up just enough weight to main­tain com­fort on long ap­proaches. A bungee on the pack’s front quickly and eas­ily straps down cram­pons or ex­tra lay­ers and the in­no­va­tive tool at­tach­ment f its ever ything from tra­di­tional moun­taineer­ing axes to mod­ern mixed tools. A small pocket stows keys and on-the-go gels, and the pack’s draw­cord clo­sure is easy to op­er­ate even with thick gloves. A fab­u­lously stripped-down, wa­ter­proof pack, ideal for ad­verse con­di­tions.
