The Patagonia Descensionist Pack 32 litre is a tough ski touring pack perfect for exploring the back country. The main body is constructed from a durable Cordura fabric with a PU coating to shed any water or snow. In the base area, a super durable Cordura Ballistic fabric is used, this is also PU coated to protect the base. Both the fabrics are treated with a DWR coating to ensure your contents stay dry and that the pack will shed snow, preventing an increase in your packs weight from holding moisture.
On the side of the pack there is an access zip to the main compartment, allowing you to by pass the lid to quickly obtain your essential rescue items 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 opening 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.
