From Cotopaxi: “We designed the Tarak primarily for multi-pitch lead climbing and backcountry skiing, allowing you to efficiently organize and streamline the gear you depend on. The beauty of the pack’s design comes courtesy of its no-frills, purpose-driven features, each added with the core climber and skier in mind. The innovative ice tool system is the perfect example of this, which consists of a durable “bucket” of fabric at the bottom and securing straps at the top. That’s it. This eliminates unnecessary toggles and loops, making the system simple to operate while in the elements, even while wearing gloves. On the back of the pack, there are configurable compression and lash points, giving you further options for arranging your gear. A zippered top lid lets you access small essentials, and it doubles as an additional lash point for a climbing rope. A hydration sleeve, low profile shoulder straps, and a removable waist belt make the Tarak perfectly suited for backcountry skiing and day hiking as well. The pack is available in both standard and one-of-a-kind Del Día colorways.”

3. The Titan from High Sierra – $84

From High Sierra: “55-liter, top-load main compartment with gusseted drawstring closure and adjustable top lid. Front-load sleeping bag compartment with divider. S-shaped ERGO-FIT shoulder strap harness with load-lifters adjust to fit trimmer torso. High-density foam padded back panel, with large AIRFLOW™ channels and uniquely contoured internal frame structure, helps keep your back cool and dry. Hinged front pocket, with mesh side gussets, can hold ropes or other gear. Convenient webbing daisy chain on the front. Padded grab handles on both sides.”
