Oregon Mountain Community
The Arc'teryx Altra 35 Backpack was designed with your lengthier single-day trips in mind. But just because it's a relatively low-volume pack doesn't mean it doesn't feature the same efficiency of its larger cousins.


Sized for gear-heavy, one-day adventures or light-and-fast weekends, the workhorse Arc'teryx Altra 35 Pack combines an advanced, breathable harness with a sturdy frame and light weight.
