The Elbrus 65:75 features Lowe Alpine’s radical Axiom back system which is designed to be more supportive and stable than their previous systems and to make it easy to adjust the back length of the pack so you get the perfect fit. You can even make the adjustment on the move with the pack still on your back and by tweaking the back length as you start to go uphill or downhill, you can alleviate the pressure on your shoulders and reduce fatigue. There are two adjustment straps on either side of back panel; you 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 distributes the load 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.
Storage is divided into two compartments with a buckled lid allowing access at the top and a lower zip giving access from the bottom. The divider can be removed to create a single larger compartment if you require. There is a bellows pocket on each side of the bag, as well as a flat pocket on the front of the bag and two 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.
