Patagonia Ascensionist Pack 35L

Patagonia Ascensionist Pack 35L

THIS SPRING 2014, PATAGONIA OFFERS ITS FIRST LINE OF TECHNICAL LIGHTWEIGHT CLIMBING PACKS FOR FAST AND LIGHT ALPINE ENDEAVORS. IT ALL STARTED WITH OUR CLIMBING AMBASSADORS’ REQUEST. THEY WANTED A LINE OF SUPER CLEAN PACKS STRIPPED OF EVERYTHING BUT THE FEATURES THAT MATTER MOST TO THE BEST ALPINISTS. PATAGONIA’S TECHNICAL TEAM WORKED WITH THEM TO CREATE A COLLECTION OF PACKS THAT FOCUS ON SIMPLE,
FUNCTION-DRIVEN DESIGNS.

The design was guided from start to finish by Patagonia’s quest for simplicity, functionality and durability. Our Ascensionist Packs let a climber take everything they need without leaving anything behind. They are lightweight, streamlined and efficient – not overbuilt – just thoughtfully built for their intended use.

Technical details
