Montane Fast Alpine 40 Pack
"The Fast Alpine 40 is Montane's very decent stab at making an all-round pack for the British mountaineer", reckons Toby Archer
Whether you're scaling glaciers or projecting a summer rock route, the Halcyon 35:40 alpine mountaineering pack has everything you need for a day moving in the mountains. The Halcyon 45:50 is perfect for multi-day alpine routes or long Scottish winter days and is made to carry all the kit you'll need on longer mountain trips.
Born from Lowe Alpine's vertical heritage, the Halcyon 35:40 is a mid-volume, traditional mountaineering pack designed for the extraordinary.
With features including a rope compression system, pick retainer panel and reinforced ski slots, you can carry your kit securely over rock, snow or ice. An extendable lid increases the volume by 5 litres, while a stiffened weather flap/compression system aids stability. A lid pocket and zipped side entry keeps kit organised and accessible.
The Halcyon features the Tri-Flex ™ carry system, designed with three key load support elements, allowing you to configure the carry to suit your adventure. Load support comes from a spring steel frame and an independent HDPE frame sheet. Both are removable, giving the carry options of frame and board for heavy loads, just the board for support yet flexibility, and removal of both for a lighter, flexible pack. Tri-Flex™ has a moulded snow-shedding back panel, a padded harness and a dual density foam hip belt with gear loops. The hip belt padding can be stripped back to the waist belt webbing or removed completely depending on preference.
