Lowe Alpine Mountain Ascent 40:50 Backpack
The Mountain Ascent 40:50 is the ideal mountaineers pack, combining comfort with fully-featured design for multi-discipline mountain use and hut-to-hut travel.
Designed with the winter mountaineer firmly in mind, this backpack is equipped with our unique double HeadLocker ice axe attachment system, gear loops and ice screw krab slots on the hip belt. An under-lid rope and crampon strap keeps all your winter kit securely stashed where it is acce easily accessible. Meanwhile, when hut to hutting, a lower entry zip lets you keep your overnight kit separate from your climbing gear.
A versatile and multi-discipline pack, the Mountain Ascent also functions as a fully-featured ski and ski-touring companion. A wide ski slot caters for modern powder skis and our Tip-Gripper secures your poles.
The Trishield fabric coating is a lightweight yet ultra-tough dual layer TriShield® coating. The Pu (HydraShield) is bonded to the inside face of the fabric reducing water absorbency significantly. They have added a very high abrasion resistant TPU coating to the outside face which increases abrasion resistance by 13 times. This combination delivers a fabric that is lightweight, won't absorb water and will stand up to abuse in extreme conditions.
