The Covert Avalung is equipped with Black Diamond's patent-pending ergoACTIV suspension, allowing its hipbelt and shoulder straps move effortlessly with you, both on the skin track and the descent.

This highly compact pack is kitted out with a dedicated avy-tool organizer pocket, A-frame carrying ability and our new diagonal ski carry cable that holds skis at the 'golden angle.'
For the 2012 season Black Diamond has made the integrated AvaLung even better with a revised valve box that sits further inside the pack body, improves airflow and increases shoulder strap comfort.
The innovative new HiLo helmet holder can secure helmets against the front panel or top of the pack, allowing for interior access whether carrying skis diagonally, A-frame style or when skinning.
The Covert is also available separately without an AvaLung. Weight: 1.98 kg, estimated (Medium/Large, 26 L Covert AvaLung), 1.6 kg, estimated (Medium/Large, 26 L Covert).
