The Arc'teryx Alpha FL 45 Pack is an ultralight backpack for rock, ice or alpine climbing. The N400r-AC² nylon 6 ripstop fabric is durable, light and weather-resistant so it can take a beating on your next adventure. A coating on both sides of the fabric and taped seams increase the water-resistance. The RollTop closure keeps gear dry and secure and extends for extra gear. An easy to use drawcord provides additional protection when not utilizing the full volume. Small items can be tossed into the front zippered pocket for quick access and to prevent loosing them to the bottom of the bag. The bungee provides a spot to lash your crampons and ice axes to the outside while protecting your other gear.
If you frequently find yourself on long, technical, and committing rock and ice routes where you need to have plenty of gear with you, or serious ski mountaineering expeditions where getting up is at least as serious as getting down, you need a pack like the Arc'teryx Alpha FL 45 Backpack. Made of water-resistant ripstop nylon with fully-taped seams, the FL 45 features a RollTop collar and top compression strap that eliminate the weight of a traditional 'brain' design and extend to give you an additional 800 cubic inches of storage, all while remaining extremely watertight. You'll probably be wearing it all day, so Arc'teryx made sure that the high-density foam back panel provides plenty of support and is extremely comfortable, and made the thermo-formed shoulder straps from Hypercell foam to relieve pressure points and distribute weight evenly.Even though it's small and incredibly streamlined, the FL 45 has most of the gadgetry you'd expect to find on a fully-featured mountaineering pack. Dual haul loops let you drag it up behind you if you so desire, while side loops hold your ice axes and the hip belt has clip points for gloves and spare gear. There are six lash points on the front to make strapping gear on a breeze, lash points for ski-carrying, and additional bungees to hold a spare layer securely. There's even a watertight security pocket to hold your valuables, and a reflective white interior to help you find small items. If you don't make it to the top, you know it's not your packs' fault.
The Arc'teryx Alpha FL 45 Pack offers climbers and alpinists an ultralight, durable and highly weather-resistant pack that's paired down to be as simple as possible with no extraneous straps or parts.
