Arc’teryx Alpha FL 30
$200, 586 g (one size)
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.
