The Patagonia Ascensionist Pack 55L is a large capacity, streamlined, yet still functional and comfortable mountaineering pack for multi day missions in the mountains. Developded in close collaboration with Patagonia's team of climbers and building on the previous version of the Ascesionist pack, this new version keeps the streamlined design, but adds some strippable features and improves support when carrying heavy loads.
The pack is constructed from a highly tear and abrasion resistant 420 denier 100% recycled Nylon Ripstop fabric, yet it still remains lightweight. It features an aluminium stays back system which provides support and structure when carrying heavier loads, this can be removed to make the pack lighter for summit pushes. The removable hip belt is padded and adjustable giving excellent comfort by evenly distributing the load, it also features gear loops on either side which can also be removed. The top closure spindrift collar has a dual closure system, meaning that it can be expanded out when carrying loads of kit on the walk in. The collar also features a zipped pocket for keeping essential items close to hand.
The axe carry system keeps pick points covered and the Velcro that holds the axe shaft is also removable. The pack also features side compression straps and handy daisy chains to provide versatile lashing options when you need to carry a larger load for extended trips into the mountains. The haul loop is super strong and has been well thought through by being stitched into the suspension system of the pack, this greatly reduces it from being accidentally torn out.
