The Elevation Pro2 is a waterproof and durable rucksack with a roll top closure and a height adjustable lid. The pack was designed for heavy duty use in alpine terrain and expeditions where 100% protection against all weathers and durability is required.
What happens when experts at the Austrian Mountain Rescue Service (AMRS) and ORTLIEB join forces to develop an alpine backpack? One such development is the ORTLIEB Elevation Pro2, a streamlined, highly functional and waterproof alpine backpack that has what it takes for the highest of summits and performance specifications.
Made of tear and abrasion-resistant nylon fabric, this backpack is the most faithful of companions when you’re on expeditions and high alpine tours where you have to be prepared for many challenges in the form of snow, ice and rock – and where every gram of weight counts.
With a 42-liter payload, plus an additional 4 liters of payload in a detachable, height-adjustable flap, various attachment fixtures for ice axes, ropes and other gear, you’ll be optimally equipped for your mountain tour.
Highly functional details such as quick access to the main compartment via a waterproof side zipper and the metal closure for the detachable waist strap make the ORTLIEB Elevation Pro2 a premium backpack for the high alpine region.
The Ortlieb Elevation Pro2 is a streamlined, highly functional and waterproof alpine backpack that has what it takes for the highest of summits and performance specifications. Numerous design features and low weight make it perfect for demanding climbs and expedition where every ounce counts without sacrificing sturdiness or waterproofness.
The pack features a waterproof zippered pocket on top of the lid which is accessible from the outside. A rope can be quickly attached to the lid thanks to a fixing strap. The lid compartment with 4 L volume can be entirely taken off, just as the waist strap (with gear loops and zippered pockets). This allows for an individual adaption for multiple purposes of the pack. A lateral zipper allows quick access to the main compartment, as an alternative to the roll closure. Further features include an ice axe mounting and an alloy buckle for the modified waist strap. A subdivided inner pocket allows for storing an optional hydration system.
