Spring ’18 sees the arrival of something truly special at Ellis Brigham; the Tupilak series of packs by Mountain Equipment.  Developed specifically for climbers and mountaineers, they represent the very best in simple, functional design.

Lightweight, durable and weather resistant, these packs excel on rock, ice and mixed ground alike.  Designed to offer On Demand Minimalism, the custom-made components are easily removable, reflecting the fact that not every feature will be needed all of the time.  Whether worn fully loaded or stripped down to the bare essentials, careful design ensures the pack sits stable and fits comfortably – essential for those long dawn to dusk exploits.

Tupilak 45

The Tupilak 45 is the largest of the series.  With a 45 litre capacity, it is well suited to alpine and winter climbing on the steepest lines and biggest faces.  A practical layout and clever storage options ensure space for all your climbing kit, so quickly accessing gloves or stashing crampons become second nature.

It is a more expensive Ascensionist! Who would have thought, a Mountain Equipment product more expensive than Arcteryx or Patagonian equivalent!!

I really think they have seriously missed a trick with the pricing of these bags, at least £100 more expensive than most climbers can afford! A real shame......

Practically no different to the arcteryx pack. I dont see much innovation here.

Agreed. I have no idea how they think they're going to shift this product at this price. I'll be sticking to my Ascensionist 35

I like the orange color, but a bit pricey for me.

If they're as durable as they make out then it might just about be worth it.  Looks thoroughly well thought out...mind not game changingly different to a lot of bits from other packs that are already well done.  What it does look lloke s that the whole package is well considered...coupled with being really tough.  

Probably not worth it for the average climber but if you really hammer your gear it might make sense.
