The Patagonia Ascensionist Pack 30L is a super tough yet simply designed 30 litre alpine pack. Its perfect for alpine trips along with journeys into the mountains where your going to be climbing rock or ice with your pack on.
The pack is constructed from a highly tear and abrasion resistant 210 denier Cordura®. fabric, yet it still remains lightweight. The pack has a structured base which cleverly gives the pack some ridgidity, making it really easy to pack all your gear in. This also increases the packs abraision resistance and durability on the base a normal high wear area. It features a foam back system which provides support and structure when your carrying heavier loads. This is also removable and can be used as an emergency bivvy mat or removed totally for fast and light ascents were every gram counts. The hip belt is simple and unpadded and has the benefit of being removed if necessary. A wide collar allows for easy packing and with a single drawcord that closes the lid and cinches the collar. This provides an excellent seal that won't come open on you. The cam lock has been moved to the lid side of the pack to give you more versatile packing options - like if you need to carry your ropes on the top. The main closure strap is also movable to assist with this which is pretty simple, yet clever stuff. When the pack is normally loaded, the lid is low volume and can be hidden away so it allows a generous range of motion when your climbing with it on and wearing your helmet. The lid features a zipped pocket for keeping essential items close to hand.
There are two available systems on this pack to securely carry your axes with, a tradtional one and one with T-bars, for if you climb with more modern tools. The velcro that holds the axe shafts is also removable. The pack also features handy daisy chains that provide versatile lashing options when you need to carry a larger load for extended trips into the mountains. The shoulder harness system has slighlty more stiffness and padding to it, so it remains comfortable for all day long use. The haul loop is super strong and has been well thought through by being stitched well into the suspension system of the pack, this greatly reduces it from being accidentially torn out. Patagonia have paid attention to these details with all the straps and daisy chains on the pack so they will be super durable and will have longevity.
The Patagonia Ascensionist Pack 30L is a truely minimal, simplistic and a versatile alpine climbing pack. It is available in two different back lengths and the Ascensionist is also available in a 40 litre version.
