Every Alpine challenge is calling you this season. Whether you’re on Dent Blanche surrounded by mighty glaciers or on the protruding Weisshorn in the Valais Alps, the Peak Light 40 backpack by Ortovox is your ultimate companion for demanding alpine tours.
The Peak Light 40 combines stability, wear, comfort and lightweight features in a functional high alpine touring pack. The total weight of 1.2kg can be reduced by a further 420g by simply removing the top, hip fins , wire frame for the back and other external fastening options. A minimal 780g of weight widens your range of use so your alpine tours can continue for longer in comfort!
The all-new Swisswool-Tec-Knit System stands for the intricate detailing of a technical foam back with heat-pressed Swiss wool, covered with a 3D High-Tec knitted fabric. The wool pads are placed on the locations that come in contact with the back, storing large volumes of water without feeling moist!
The Peak Light 40 is specifically designed for long alpine tours. These packs are very robust, yet incredibly lightweight thanks to being manufactured with the extremely water, tear and abrasion resistant material Nylon 420D Oxford. This Nylon fabric is one of the lightest materials Ortovox uses in the design of all of their backpacks.
Just because the term ‘Light’ is used in its name, Ortovox haven’t sacrificed anything important. Still they concentrate on all of the important features such as rope and ice axe fixation, load control cords, a helmet net, material loops, hip pocket, a map compartment and the classic circumferential zipper which lets you gain quick access and get to your supplies quickly and easily.
Safety equipment is held securely inside thanks to the safety attachment. With your safety considered, the standard Ortovox features include an emergency card, a chest strap with signal whistle, compression strap, bright interior colour, hydration system compatibility and a ski holder.
These carefully considered features, the low weight and innovative back system make the Peak Light 40 a highly functional alpine touring backpack, perfect for your next alpine adventure.
