A versatile design that allows the suspension and bag components to be removed for weight savings, the Direttissima 46 Backpack lets you par-down to the bare minimum. This durable four-season climbing pack features a glove-friendly Compression Strap System to secure overloads, effectively shrink the pack to a minimalvolume, and tuck away inside the front panel pocket when not in use. Its top skirt extends to add another 375 cu. in. / 6L of carrying capacity, while the FlapTop pocket design allows the pack to be used without the top lid without compromising compression or weather-protection. For a short summit bid the removable top pocket has webbing loops on top and a rope strap underneath for carrying climbing essentials, and its ski-friendly feature set includes ski loops and shovel space in the front pocket. The Direttissima 46 Backpack also sports a durable Dyneema front panel that provides quick access lash points for all kinds of mountaineering gear.
