A lightweight backback designed for multi-day adventures in the mountains.
The Apex Guide 45L is a technical mountaineering pack designed for full days with dawn starts, steep approaches, and strenuous technical ascents and descents. With its Dry Back Contact carrying system, you no longer need to worry about body sweat causing your body temperature to drop. It lowers temperature at the central back and limits sweating thanks to its reduced contact area and also has a built-in micro-ventilation system with 3D air channels that lets greater airflow get to the back.
Furthermore, the Apex Guide features smart solutions that make it the go-to mountaineering pack. Made from robust ROBIC®, a special, high-tenacity nylon that is 60% more tear-resistant than conventional nylon pack fabrics, it can withstand just about everything from rocks to crampons and ice tools.
It has a protective lid with a top pocket and an external safety pocket for your avalanche shovel and probe. For functional simplicity, the magnetic buckle system makes it possible to attach a rope single-handed. The roll top system allows easy volume adjustment to stabilize and centre the load. And the proven split shoulder strap system allows greater arm mobility, including with overhead moves.
