The Deepwinter is our mid capacity climbing pack that has, over its 15 or so year history, become a favourite among alpine professionals and serious recreational users alike.

When you’re in the mountains you need a pack that’s comfortable and won’t let you down but that’s still fully- featured. We’ve got good at “simple, functional and durable” and applied it to every aspect of this pack. Ideally suited to single or multi-day climbing or ski touring trips, the Deepwinter is the result of this deeply thought out design process.

Need a pack that’s as serious as the mountains in this amazing country? Get a Deepwinter - sorted.

  • Seamless main body

  • Removable lid – perfect for that ultralight summit attempt

  • GS lite fixed-size harness – fixed harnesses give greater strength and comfort in a lighter, more economical package

  • 3D framesheet forms the ‘chassis’ of the harness system and keeps the load as close as possible to the torso without sacrificing comfort. For lightweight summit bids, the framesheet is removable

  • Fully equipped for technical gear attachment including tool panel with crampon fixture, ice tool attachments, wand pockets and side retention straps for skis or poles

  • Reinforced ‘haul’ handle, beefy plastic coated racking on hip belt, alpine clips for glove-friendly tool access and a shovel flap

  • Our pack fabrics have an internal water proof coating and an external DWR coating. For increased longevity of these coatings we do not recommend machine washing

  • Brush dirt from the product while still dry
