Not every pack is up to the task of handling an alpine environment’s cold and demanding conditions. Specifically built for mountaineering, this model considers the journey ahead with ultra-sturdy construction, an adjustable suspension system, and a slew of features for storing and quickly accessing your essentials – crampons, ice tools, and more. And, fortifying its extremely tough design, both The North Face’s athlete team and Denali guides offered input and tested it to ensure its lightweight yet rugged combination supports all your gear and lasts through high-altitude, snow-, and ice-covered terrain.
