TOUR SERIES – SWITCHBACK
From long ascents to steep couloirs, ski tours in alpine terrain require optimum weight and function. The SWITCHBACK is a lightweight, technically sophisticated backpack with alpine features for demanding ski tours.
One especially practical feature is quick access to equipment. Shoulder and hip pockets, a side compartment for crampons, climbing skins and ski crampons plus a rope can all be easily accessed without having to remove the backpack. A carabiner can also be used to attach skis parallel to the backpack while it is being worn.
Emergency equipment and a light ice axe stored in the separate safety compartment can be quickly grabbed in an emergency, while all items in the main compartment can be accessed via the fully fold-out back.
A large, separate compartment provides additional space in the upper part of the backpack. If the backpack is not too full, the volume can be effectively reduced using the A-Skifix 3-point compression straps.
Two ice axe holders, a daisy chain, a rope attachment and a helmet net complement the versatile attachment options. When heavily loaded, the ergonomic Full Contact Light Back System distributes the load optimally across the back.
