The 42:47 sits in the middle of the Altus range, larger than a conventional daypack but smaller than a trekking bag. It fills a niche for those who require a pack a little bigger for those overnighters but one small enough so it doesn’t weigh you down.

Aircontour + forms the backbone of the Altus. A new revolutionary back system that uses laminated dual-density moulded EVA foam with a mesh backer to promote exceptional airflow for sublime comfort. The back length is completely adjustable so the pack can be tailored to your height. A complete wrap-around hip belt guarantees optimum load transfer to enhance what Lowe Alpine describes as “Carry perfection”.

With an array of features Altus will enable you to tackle the most challenging of mountain escapades. An extendable top lid allows you to carry that little bit more, for those trips which require additional equipment. An array of lashing points is supplemented by both Headlocker axe and TipGripper walking pole attachment loops for those all-important 4 season pieces of hardware.

Safety is paramount in the backcountry. Altus has an SOS panel located under the top-lid, cause in an emergency you have to react fast. The panel features first aid and signalling essentials in an easy to read format. A whistle built into the sternum strap is another emergency essential for adventures in the mountains.

The mid-sized 52L pack is a top-loader with plenty of space for gear, with front entry. This provides a means to access kit fast and also allows for both compartmentalisation and organisation. A Zippered lid pocket can be used to store smaller essentials and a small security pocket with a key clip keeps those valuables safe.

Stretch mesh side pockets easily swallow large water bottles and for those who prefer the pack does feature a hydration system sleeve for bladders up to 3 litres. A front elasticated dump pocket keeps wet and dirty kit away from contaminating kit on the inside of the pack, whilst keeping items close at hand.

210D Robic Ripstop found on the face of the pack provides a fabulous weight to strength ratio, while 420D PW is used on hard wear areas to promote durability and wear resistance. The conglomerate of the fabric ensures that Altus can keep up with the demands of long mountain days or traverses across the terrain.

The Altus 42:47 is a perfect mix of a larger than a day and smaller than trekking pack perfect for those overnight micro-adventure escapes to the wild. It is ideal for those adventurers who require a two day escape to the mountains. With the new Aircontour + back system, Altus provides you with complete freedom of movement for traversing technical terrain.

Altus. A pack for adventurers. Let it Move your world .
