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.

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.

Awesome pack!

Just got this pack, and in full disclosure, I've only used it once. But I love the design, including the crampon sleeve, and it's the perfect side. I also like the way the material on the sides and bottom is a little bit burlier. Pumped to use it this week in Wyoming for ice climbing.

Reliable companion

Simple, sturdy, scalable bag which adjusts easily to the load you carry, be it for a kick morning trail, a day climb, or a 2/3 days trek.

Love the fabrics and the look. Congrats! Frederic
