The Ski Raptor builds on our years of experience making the most advanced skimo race packs and integrates many of the features into a next level freeride pack for fast and light tours in the backcountry. Skis can be attached and removed without removing the pack with X-Press ski carrying system. Crampons and other essentials can be accessed through a side opening at the bottom of the pack—again without removing pack. The interior flap that compartmentalizes the crampon pocket can be zipped away to create a single large interior main compartment. Hide-away systems carry essential ski mountaineering gear like poles, axes, and helmet. A zipper pocket on the front is compartmentalized for fast access to avalanche safety gear like the shovel and probe. The upper zip pocket is lined with fleece for goggles and glasses. The back panel features Back Door access which makes gear accessible independent of where it is layered in the pack. Last, but not least, Nylon TriRipstop fabric is lightweight and remarkably resilient to the stresses of the backcountry.
If you like fast and light, with smooth transitions, this is your pack.
