Lowe Alpine first came to prominence by producing climbing packs that met the needs of the top performers of the day. 50 years on and the new Ascent Range, featuring the Ascent Superlight continues this tradition.

The 30 litre Ascent Superlight is one of the lightest fully featured packs on the market and shares a design lineage with Lowe Alpine’s very first 1967 Expedition Backpack.

Designed by mountaineers, for mountaineers, this pack evolves Lowe Alpine’s trademark HeadLocker ice axe attachment system to offer easier handling.

Other features include sculpted shoulder straps for greater freedom of movement, a new TriShield Superlight fabric coating - speci cally developed for this pack to increase abrasion resistance and a removable back panel that doubles up as a bivi seat.

Dynamic Action Harness

Headlocker Ice Axe Attachment

Our Unique Buckle to secure the head of an ice axe to your pack. Revised to be lighterweight and more mitt-friendly than ever.


Top Tensioner and Rope Attachment

Top tensioners on this pack double as a rope retainer, loose the weight not the functionality.

Large Bat Wing

Large bat wings wrap around your body to aid stability when covering undulating terrain.


“The Ascent Range of climbing and mountaineering packs is our most advanced yet. Using all 50 years of experience we have produced a new collection of packs that meet all the requirement of the modern alpinist, lightweight, strong and fully functional." Tim Fish, Brand Director, Lowe Alpine
