A workhorse of a backpacking and expedition pack, the Cerro Torre 65:85 Rucksack uses Lowe Alpine's radical Axiom+ back system to provide comfort and haulage stability on long trips in the wilderness. Incredibly functional, this pack effortlessly consumes expedition kit with ease and remains incredibly durable in harsh environments.
Storage is divided into two compartments with a buckled lid allowing access at the top and two lower zips giving access from the front and the bottom. The divider can be removed to create a single larger compartment if you require. There is a flat pocket on the front of the bag and one on the hipbelt to store the small things you need to get to quickly. If you run out of space inside the pack you can strap equipment to the outside using the strong lash points and the supplied accessory straps.
The Axiom+ back system from Lowe Alpine is designed to be more supportive and stable than their previous systems, it should also be easier to adjust the back length so you get the perfect fit. You can even make the adjustment on the move by tweaking the back length as you start to go uphill or downhill, this alleviates the pressure on your shoulders and reduces fatigue. There are two adjustment straps on either side of the back panel; pull one to release the locking mechanism, pull the second to adjust the position of the shoulder straps until they are in the perfect position, then release the first adjustment strap to lock the shoulder straps in that position.
The anatomically shaped moulded back panel is supported by a lightweight sprung steel frame that ensures the load is stable and distributed nicely between your shoulders and hips. Ventilation channels across the panel allow air to circulate to and from your back to keep you cool when you are working hard.
