Patagonia Ascensionist 30L Backpack

1 item left

The Patagonia Ascensionist 30L Backpack is a lightweight Ski Touring/Alpine Climbing technical pack. It's a rugged but lightweight design, aimed at fast ascents with a minimalistic approach.

30L volume is perfect for single day ski touring expeditions and could expand out enough to do a sneaky overnighter. The four rows of attachment points on the front give ample room to attach a sleeping mat and/or helmet with minimal weight penalties.

The Ripstop Cordura® fabric is bomber but lightweight, and a ton of compression strap options make sure that you can manage the weight inside you pack how you like. 

Fit wise the Ascensionist is a dream. With Ergonomic shoulder straps and lift loaders, the comfort is far from the minimalist design of the rest of the pack. Complete with a lightweight hip belt and low profile Sternum strap.

If you want to go far, the Ascensionist will take you there.
