Blue Ice was founded in Chamonix, 2008 to make high-quality mountaineering equipment. Their creative energy, engineering know-how and passion for climbing means they are able to apply the most direct and simple solutions to product development in a minimalist way.
The Warthog 26 litre backpack is small, light and simple. It is designed for fast and demanding one day ascents in high alpine. The Warthog is a light (720g), extremely durable (500/1000 denier cordura) backpack with all the essential accessories you need and nothing more. This is the ideal pack for light and fast one day climbs on technical routes: it is compact to allow freedom of movement and it is super durable for the most demanding conditions.
The additional attachment features allow for a carrying capacity far beyond the stated 26 litre pack size as you approach, whilst allowing the pack to be stripped to a minimal size whilst on route.
