The brand new Mountain Attack from Lowe Alpine has been designed and thoroughly tested by some of the worlds elite mountaineers to produce a practical and robust multi purpose mountaineering pack that is perfect for all mountain activities from Alpine hut to hut tours, multi day mountain routes and long days out in the hills.
This pack is all about function and practicality, all the main contact points have been designed for easy use with winter gloves or mitts and there are enough clever storage options for winter axes, tools, skis and climbing kit. Lowe's ingenious "headlocker" system makes attaching and removing ice axes quick and easy and their load locker buckles and WebCatcher system for attaching skis are easy to use with bulky gloves yet incredibly secure.
Comfort has not been compromised and the adaptive fit hip belt and shoulder harness provide a comfortable carry whatever your size and shape. You can even strip down the hip belt to a minimal webbing belt and remove the padding altogether for use when wearing a harness or if you don't want a waist belt at all. The shoulder straps have extra padding on the main load bearing points and less where it s not required. A well padded back panel is designed to enhance comfort when carrying heavier loads and features a ventilation channel and internal wire frame to save weight and provide essential support and load distribution. There is even a removable foam sheet that can be used a bivvy mat or sit mat.
For versatile loading options the top lid can be extended and has a webbing strap to accommodate ropes, crampons or just some extra kit. One of the best features of the Mountain Attack, one not often found on this kind of pack, is the large side zip which allows direct access to the main compartment without going through the top lid; this is especially useful if you've packed your rope/crampons under the lid. The main compartment can also be split in two via a zipped divider to separate wet/dirty kit and this base compartment can be accessed separately by an external side zip.
To make sure you get years of service from this superb pack it is made from Lowe's special Trishield Grid nylon ripstop fabric that has been impregnated with silicone to increase the tear strength by 20%.
