    Product Description

    The Icefall 40 redefines alpine backpacks. It’s tailor-made for alpinists who indulge in their hobby year-round and are looking for a reliable backpack that’s easy to handle.

If you want to reduce the weight of your Icefall to the absolute minimum, you can remove the compression straps and other features – the weight loss adds up to an impressive 10.5 ounces.
