The Descensionist Pack has a lightweight, fully featured design that meets all the needs of core backcountry riders and mountaineers out for a long day in varied terrain. Durable 210-denier CORDURA® nylon fabric makes the pack extremely light and supple, but still provides burly puncture and abrasion resistance. Your shovel and avy tools have their own zip-closing pocket that features internal elastic cording to keep everything organized and allow instant retrieval. The front accessory straps make it easy to pack a snowboard or a pair of skis, and two sets of daisy chains provide multiple lashing options.

Weather Tech

DWR Coating - DWR (Durable Water Repellent) allows fabric to shed moisture and prevents saturation. DWR also helps repel oils and stains which can affect the fabric's breathability. Bags with a DWR finish are a must-have in snowy or wet conditions.


Waist Strap - Keeps your pack in place when you're moving, something you absolutely want on a pack that's going to be seeing any action.

Chest Strap - Assists with load distribution on your back.

Material Explanation

Cordura® - Stylish durability and exceptional strength-to-weight ratio: Cordura® fabric is resistant to tears, scuffs and abrasions all while offering higher performance versus commodity polyester and nylon.
