Ski mountaineers need lots of things in their packs - rope, harness, crampons, axe, skins, layers...you get the idea. Now where the heck am I going to put all this stuff? For our big missions we reach for the Dynafit Blacklight Pro 30 Touring Pack. This is the backpack you get when a feather-weight skimo pack and a full featured mountaineering pack have a baby. Weighing in at a meager 540 grams, this is the burliest backcountry/ski-mountaineering backpack Dynafit has ever presented.
Made with tear resistant Dyneema that has 15 times the tensile strength of steel, and loaded with features like ice-axe attachment points, pullout helmet carrier and reinforced daisy chains. The integrated “Safety Box” is easily accessed with a velcro door on the outside of the pack and ideal for wet skins, crampons, etc… In true skimo style you can rack your skis without taking your pack off with the aluminum ski hook system. This pack will carry heavier skis well with its anatomical shoulder straps and split “V” hip belt that allows your hips to rotate freely from material rub. Grab the Blacklight Pro 30L, pack it up and send it!
