Product Information

The Arete 45 is packed with features to help you tame your chosen route. The addition of a removable crossbar load transfer frame improves the comfort of the pack during the walk when loads are higher, but without hindering any movement on the climb.

Another really useful feature is built into the hipbelt; the finger grip belt allows you to push the gear loops of your harness through, meaning you can wear the hipbelt and access your harness at the same time.

FREE STANDARD UK DELIVERY on orders over £30

Northallerton Fell walking passion
Sleek, quality build.
Could have done with a couple more pockets. But to be fair this model is designed primarily for climbing.

Dundee experienced
Value....very good value but Berghaus brand somewhat sacrificed to achieve this.
One of fastening clips broke first outing so this has influenced my thinking. Have taken it up ten Munros and not found it comfortable. I bought too cheap.....my fault!
