WINNER: Franco Cookson

, 72 kb

The bi-product of extensive testing and design input between Montane and international climbing legend Andy Kirkpatrick, the Ultra Alpine 38 +5 pack is a serious piece of kit.

Described by Andy Kirkpatrick as: '...highly specialised and niche, a real climbers pack...'

Designed to be a technical pack for long alpine climbs, it was developed and constructed in keeping with Andy's - and Montane's - design philosophies. The pack is stripped back to its most efficient minimum; everything you definitely need, nothing you don't; light, but still tough.

Its stripped-back nature allows for a very high standard of construction for its price of £150. Using Dimension Polyant® VX-21 fabric in the main body, it is ultra lightweight yet exceptionally tough and strong. Featureing a superb DWR and tear and abrasion resistance. This also keeps it light, at 615g.

Its large wide mouth pack opening with roll-top dry bag closure for extra storm protection and fast access to gear. Featuring an additional 5 litre pull out roll-top extension with a 'Cord Lord' quick release mechanism, allowing for overpacking during insertion hikes.

Further reinforcing its lightweight and rugged utility, the Ultra Alpine 38 +5 features tough metal components throughout that are glove and mitt friendly.
