Our preferred pack for fast and light alpine, ice climbing, and winter expeditions.
OUR WINTER PURSUITS PACK

Move fast to and up your climb with the balanced weight, security, and comfort that the Prism brings to your Winter pursuits. Ideal for weekend or section hikes where frequent resupply points are available.

Charge headlong into the spectrum of winter’s white light with the pack built for alpine adventure. The Prism beckons ice climbers, mountaineers, alpinists, and backcountry skiers to think big and go deep. Designed to meet at the intersection of speed, weight, security, and comfort, this top-loading pack features an extendable drawstring closure and an adjustable, removable low-profile lid. The hip belt provides two gear racks and two ice clipper slots, but is removable when not required for the task at hand, or when wearing a climbing harness. Climbers can store a rope under the lid, glacier adventurers can store their wands in the side pockets, and backcountry skiers can depend on the A-frame carry when they’re on foot marching up the steep stuff.

Great pack, super light, one picky issue

I think every pack I have purchased in the past 5 years has had an access for sliding a hydration tube through. I know it adds extra labor, and extra weight to have that extra material and stitching, and maybe you think that hydration tubes freeze during ice season, but, they dont always, especially if you have an insulated tube. Otherwise, the pack is perfect. I have a sewing machine, so I will mod. Thanks!

Also, not sure the difference between the "L" and the "T". i bought an L, which my son has now stolen, and so I ordered a T when I saw that was an option. They are identical as far as I can see. Thanks!

I got the pack a lot sooner than I expected.

The pack is just what I thought it would be. Light and tough. I didn’t buy it for ice climbing though. I got it to go on several day backcountry fishing trips. It looks like it will do just fine for what I need.

Outstanding oack

Pack is versatile in that I can easily use it for ice clinging, rick climbing, and long section hikes along the AT

From the car through the approach to the climbing site the pack wears well with or without layers on. I can carry 2 x 70m ropes without issue and all the gear, food and water needed for along day out.

The pack wears well over a harness for multipitch routes and is slim and light enuff not to in the way.
