The Patagonia Descensionist Pack 40 litre is a tough ski touring pack perfect for exploring the back country for an extended period of time. The main body in constructed from a durable 210 denier Cordura fabric with a PU coating to shed any water or snow. In the base area, a super durable 940 denier Cordura Ballistic fabric is utilized, this is also PU coated protecting the base from holding any moisture. Both the fabrics are treated with a DWR coating to ensure your contents stay dry and the pack will shed any snow.
On the front of the pack there is a large zipped pocket that will happily hold your essential rescue items, these can be accessed fast in an emergency. The Descensionist features a foam back system which provides support and structure when carrying larger and heavier loads. This back system is also removable and can be used as an emergency bivvy mat or removed totally for fast and light missions where every gram counts. The hip belt is wide for evenly distributing the load, providing comfort over long days.
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 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 being accidentally torn out. Patagonia have paid attention to these details with all the straps on the pack, so they will be super durable.
