This time last year, Montane launched a brand new pack range to its gear. This year it has introduced a further 5 - 3 technical packs and 2 duffles.
Using the same design principles as the original 4 (lightweight comfort, functional excellence, durability and weatherproofness) the 3 new technical packs range in size from 55 to 22 litres.
Ultra Tour 22
Developed through close involvement and experience in the Montane Lakeland 100 race; a 100 mile trail race through the fells of the English Lake District. This race demands an extreme lightweight approach coupled with the facility to carry whatever you need to survive in the mountains. The UK's unpredictable weather means that conditions during the race can range from bitter cold to hours of torrential rain to bright sunshine. The Ultra Tour 22 is the consummate mountain race pack, constructed from ultra lightweight RAPTOR ZERO fabric. It features a roll-top closure for fast access to clothing and equipment and large stretch mesh pockets for storage of route maps, water bottles and essentials.
The ultra lightweight and minimalist nature of the Ultra Tour 22 also makes it an ideal summit pack that can be carried on longer mountain routes within another, larger pack, for day excursions or the final summit day.
Usage: Alpine Running / Mountain Marathon / Trail Running / Fast Alpine (Summit day)
