Ortovox Haute Route 40 Backpack
|Availability:||In stock (1)|
Fit, function, safety, and convenience: Those are the most important attributes when picking a backcountry touring pack. Ortovox’s Haute Route line of touring backpacks deliver on all four categories while keeping the unloaded weight of the pack to a minimum.
All Haute Route packs come with an integrated helmet-holder strap, a specialized separate compartment for safety gear, and an integrated signalling whistle right on the chest strap. All are compatible with various brands of hydration system and sport numerous attachment points for crampons, snowshoes, poles, and ice axes. You’ll never have to dig around for gear and ruin your careful packing job again -- just unzip the rear access zipper and snag what you need from the bottom of the barrel.
But let’s face it: These are standard features we should all expect and demand from our backcountry packs at this point. What really makes Ortovox’s packs stand out is their specially designed O-Flex-2 frame system. The Swiss engineers have designed a simple customization system for the internal pack frame itself. You don’t just have to pick the least-worst feeling frame in the shop, then adjust the hip and shoulder straps for stability. With the Ortovox Haute Route, you can flex and shape the frame itself to fit the particular shape of your shoulders, spine, hips, and ribcage. It’s a game-changer.
