Product Description

Verglas 40 is a purist, lightweight and versatile modifiable daypack. It is perfect for mountain and climbing trips.

The minimal lid and easy-to-operate spindrift collar provide quick access to the main compartment. Access is even faster through the side zipper access. This allows easy reach of items such as gloves or water bottles when packed near the zipper.

Minimized daisy chain provides attachment options for ice axe, rope, helmet or mat. Side compression straps, ice axe loop and the Tool Blade can be removed or freely positioned as needed.

Slim, compact fit provides an ergonomic, close-to-body fit. The thermo molded back and comfortable shoulder straps provide a high level of carrying comfort. With a padded, removable hip belt with two pockets, quick access and additional internal organization options, the Verglas offers plenty of comfort while maintaining a purist look and shape.

"The French word 'Verglas' stands for a thin film of ice on a rock. The perfect name for a technical, alpine backpack."
