The Arcteryx Alpha FL 40 is a larve capacity minimalist pack for fast and light use in the mountains, ideal for multi day missions, whether you're rock climbing, alpine climbing or ski mountaineering. It's very light for a pack of it's size, yet don't let this deceive you the AC2 ripstop nylon is super, super tough. The pack has a simple Roll Top closure, which when fully extended gives the pack additional capacity up to 52 litres.
The AC2 Nylon is coated on both the inside and out and is backed up with taped seams, creating an air tight and waterproof fabric, that is also highly durable. The inside of the pack has been coloured white to help reflect light into the pack, enabling you to get to the contents quicker. The back panel is formed from high density polyethylene foam, providing excellent support, while maintaining the structure. Though this is a minimalist fast and light pack it does include lashing points allowing crampons, a helmet or a sleeping pad to be carried on the outside.
Additional organisation is provided by a front pocket with YKK water resistant zip and a new internal zipped pocket accessible without unrolling the top.
