Product description

The Couloir 40 is an extremely versatile and long-lasting winter backpack. It is the ideal companion for day trips with skis or snowboard and snow shoe adventures. With the slightly larger volume, it is also particularly well suited for longer trips.

To keep the suspension system dry when the pack is placed in the snow, access is possible through both the 270° zippered opening of the back panel or a smart top lid opening from the carrying side. This makes organizing and stowing gear extremely easy and convenient.

Skis and splitboards can be easily strapped on in three different ways. The included webbing straps with buckles also allow snowboards and snowshoes to be attached vertically to the front of the pack. All pockets and compartments are easily accessible even when wearing gloves. The gear loops can be removed when not in use. The two  ice axe attachments can be positioned freely.

The comfortable back, padded shoulder straps and hip belt make the Couloir extremely comfortable to carry. The fabrics used are not only water repellent and PFC-free, but also recycled.
