Made with bluesign-approved fabric ~ The bluesign standard is the worlds most stringent textile standard for environmental protection, consumer protection, and occupational safety. All environmental aspects of production are evaluated at the screening: water and air emissions, noise levels, energy and material use, as well as working conditions related to dangerous materials. Products that are made from at least 90% bluesign-certified materials are given the "bluesign-approved fabric" label.
Anatomic Alpine suspension system is engineered for alpine use and longer mountaineering tours with greater loads ~ Designed with a lighter anatomic back panel that prevents the load from bulging into your back, significantly improving carrying comfort (panel can be removed when necessary to reduce weight) ~ Two large mesh pads are positioned along the spine to distribute the load evenly over the entire back, while also creating a back channel for superior ventilation
Newly constructed hipbelt can be worn three ways: ~ As a traditional hipbelt ~ With the hip wings folded away and a strap hipbelt (especially practical when you're wearing a climbing harness) ~ Without the hipbelt (hipbelt can be completely detached)
F.L.A.S.H. NT adjustment allows you to precisely adjust the length of the shoulder straps quickly and comfortably; pull system at the point where the shoulder straps exit the pack lets you adjust the individual length of the shoulder straps for custom-fitting comfort

Lid pocket stores small gear (map, first aid kit, snacks) and keeps it easily accessible; additional zippered pocket on the lids interior safely stores all of the essentials
