Key Features.


  • Hilo helmet holder, hip belt stash pocket and fleece-lined goggle pocket


  • Padded, adjustable ergoActiv waist-belt uses a ball-joint to attach directly to the frame so it can pivot as you move and angle the weight to your legs
  • Padded, adjustable SwingArm straps are linked on the bottom with a cable so they move in concert with any body movement


  • Hydration sleeve allows you to use a hydration bladder to stay hydrated, and the insulated design keeps your water from freezing solid


  • Ski carry options include a diagonal ski carry cable that retracts when not in use and an A-frame carry system

Weather and Wind:

  • Built-in Avalung system significantly extends your fresh air supply in case you're caught in an avalanche and buried beneath the snow


  • Large zippered front-panel opening


  • Dedicated avy-tool organizer pocket and ice axe attachment
  • Enclosed shovel and probe organizer pocket makes it easy to find your entire avy tool kit quickly, and the enclosed design protects your essentials


  • Patent-pending ergo ACTIV suspension with Swing Arm shoulder straps
  • Avalung mouthpiece and tubing stow away in the shoulder strap when not in use, but are easy to reach so you can extend the mouthpiece just before you drop in


  • Fresh air is pulled from the valve box by your shoulder and through the Avalung mouthpiece, and when you exhale, CO2 is expelled from the exhaust port by your waist

Black Diamond Covert Avalung Backpack:   

Optimized for sidecountry laps and day-long backcountry tours, the Black Diamond Covert AvaLung stores everything you need for day-to-day off-piste travel and increases your chance of survival in the event of an avalanche burial thanks to its built-in AvaLung. Our innovative ergoACTIV suspension keeps the Covert AvaLung stable on the skin track or an aggressive descent, and the spacious interior organizes your avy tools, plus has enough room for lunch, layers and skins. When you hit the ridgeline, the tuck-away HiLo helmet holder and diagonal ski carry cable keep everything in check.

Average Stock Weight : 2 kg (4 lb 6 oz) estimated.

The Black Diamond Covert Backpack is a superb backcountry touring backpack that can do it all. This low-profile, highly-technical ski backpack features a built-in Avalung to increase your chance of survival in the event of an avalanche by pulling fresh air from the surrounding snowpack. ErgoACTIV suspension moves with you whether you've got skis strapped on for the bootpack or you're popping through the trees. Comfortable and easy to use, the Covert Backpack includes a diagonal ski-carry cable for fast and secure attachment, HiLo helmet holder, hipbelt stash and fleece-lined goggle pockets, and an enclosed shovel and organizer pocket that makes it easy to find your entire avy-tool kit quickly.

For a quick out-and-back skin lap or fast day tour, the added protection of the Black Diamond Covert Avalung Backpack is hard to beat. The small, classic backpack design holds the minimum—your safety tools—plus a built-in Avalung system, and the cleverly engineered and insanely comfortable shoulder strap and waist-belt system keep your compact load comfortable.

Black Diamond Covert AvaLung Pack Review:


The BD Covert is a good size pack without a bunch of added stuff. I love the shape of the pack as a whole. If you get the right size, it will balance well when fully loaded. Ski carry options are well thought out. Has plenty of space for a shovel/probe and a little extra space in the safety pocket. The soft lined goggle/tech pocket at the top of the pack is roomy for a headlamp/goggles/ sunglasses and some other small items. The main pocket is easily accessible, with room for a packable insulation layer, water bottle(if not using a hydration reservoir), gloves, skins, lunch, and any snow study tools that you may have. The small pocket on the waist belt is handy for small items like a leatherman or knife. Well designed with durable zippers and handles. Good size for long multi-lap days int he backcountry or shorter days in side country, although a smaller pack might be better if you are looking to do side-country exclusively. The Covert offers versatility, which I like. I have had issues with my Avalung not staying bent at the right angle to face my mouth, it seems to be a little limp and won't stay put where I want it to. I am 5'9" with a shorter torso and made the mistake of going with M/L frame and had to switch to the S/M, which fits much better.
