Win a Berghaus Arete Pack Winner

WINNER: Ed Newcome

Berghaus Arete 45 Rucksack  © UKC Articles

Designed for extended alpine use, the Berghaus Arete 45 and 35 rucksacks are packed with features designed for climbing, mountaineering or ski-touring.  These popular packs have evolved over the years and recent additions such as a crossbar load transfer frame improve comfort while carrying heavy loads on a walk-in, without hindering during the climb.  The frame is also removable for climbers who choose to go lightweight.  

The Aretes are loaded with technical features, including the innovative finger grip hipbelt, which allows the wearer to push through the gear loops of their harness, delivering the full comfort of the hipbelt while wearing a climbing harness.   The split in the belt offers easy access to gear for leading, and allows a seconder to quickly collect runner. 

Other features include a grab handle, top lid pocket, zipped internal lid pocket, rope compression strap, side compression straps, front attachment points, glove/mitt friendly ice axe attachments, easy-use, glove friendly buckles and A-frame ski carry system.  The Aretes are hydration system compatible and made out of durable Ardura 330D Diamond Ripstop fabric, reinforced with Esdura 450D.  The Arete 45 weighs around 1.13kg and retails at £75, while the women’s Arete 35 weighs 990g and retails at £70.
