Packed with features for mountaineers and climbers, the Mountain Ascent ND38:48 includes the unique double HeadLocker ice axe attachment system, and a wide ski slot for modern powder skis. The hip belt is removable for use with a harness, and the frame and lid can also be removed.

Carry System

The Ascent range features a moulded panel designed to stay comfortable and supportive whatever terrain you encounter on the way to the summit. Snow shedding, and with grip panels for load stability, a lightweight hip belt and sculpted shoulder straps give a super comfortable and secure carry when scrambling or moving over rough terrain. Women’s ND Ascent packs include a women's geometry back system for improved carrying comfort.
