Montane's Ultra Alpine 38 pack is a simple affair designed for climbers who need a pack that's light, tough with just the features you need for climbing.
Montane says: Ultra lightweight technical climbing pack.
The Ultra Alpine 38+5 is designed for fast and light climbing without compromising performance or durability. Developed with Montane's lead athlete and expert big wall climber Andy Kirkpatrick, the Ultra 38+5 is Montane's lightest yet extremely tough and functional climbing pack. Utilising Dimension Polyant VX-21 fabric, this pack is not only light but extremely durable to withstand abrasion against rock surfaces.
Montane's Ultra Alpine 38+5 is a very tough bag with a pair of straps and a hipbelt, ok, there are a few other features but not many, it will suit a serious climber who doesn't need or want the frills of a more sophisticated rucksack.
Bit we like - since there's no facility to hang hardwear from the hip belt there are a couple of gear loops on the shoulder straps - in my experience a much more useful place anyway.
