We can’t say no to a great backpack, and this one (part of French Alpine company Millet’s “Trilogy Collection”) is no exception. Here’s a little feedback from from an Outside Magazine Field Tester..
[A rugged but light top-loader for mountaineering, ski touring, and ice climbing. THE TEST: “A refreshingly simple pack with a few key features,” one tester said. The hipbelt gear loops conveniently holstered bulky crevasse rescue accessories while we were ski-mountaineering in the Coast Range, and the pull-out helmet holder kept our lid secure. On the frigid summit, we appreciated the mitt-friendly zipper pulls. And even when we overstuffed the 32-liter main pocket and strapped on skis (diagonal or A-frame), the X-shaped aluminum suspension rods never buckled. THE VERDICT: Built for abuse (metal clips, burly zips, tough fabric), this simple, vertically inclined pack should hold up for years.]
Pack, along with other great Millet products, is now available at the shop!
