Montane Updates Fast Alpine 40 Climbing Pack Product News

The FAST ALPINE pack – for half a decade the go-to pack for the discerning climber and mountaineer interested in maximum efficiency and robust, intuitive design – has been updated for this spring/summer.

Drawing upon extensive testing and feedback with Montane athletes and leading British mountain guides, the Fast Alpine 40's design has been improved to enhance functionality. RRP £140.

New updates include:

  • Asymmetric bivi opening with Cord Lord quick release adjustment and bivi flap
  • Extendable and removable lid
  • Low profile wand pockets
  • Montane off-centre Click and Go chest harness
  • Fixed webbing waist belt with a metal quick release system

Further harder to see tweaks have been made to enhance the pack's inherent materiality, such as a 420 denier main fabric and mitt-friendly buckles, compliment other more directly useable features. Our 'Further. Faster.' ethos is apparent in small touches such as the Click and Go chest harness - a simple and quick feature originally used on our series of running packs.

This cumulation of innovation, high-performance design and desire for no-frills efficiency allows for a simple, intuitive and efficient pack that is designed for easy use in the most extreme environments, yet equally at home at lower altitudes.
