The Mountain Ascent ND 38:48 is the mountaineers pack of choice, comfortable and fully-featured, it is ideal for multi-discipline mountain use and hut-to-hut travel.

The Mountain Ascent ND 38:48 offers the refined geometry of our carefully designed women’s back systems, making it a super comfortable and secure carry. The winter mountaineer will find this backpack fully equipped and ready, with our unique double HeadLocker ice axe attachment system, gear loops and ice screw krab slots on the hip belt. An under-lid rope and crampon strap keeps all your winter kit securely stashed yet quickly accessible. Meanwhile, when hut to hutting, a lower entry zip allows you to keep your overnight kit and climbing gear separate.

A versatile and multi-discipline pack, the Mountain Ascent also functions as a fully-featured ski and ski-touring companion. It includes a wide ski slot that caters for modern powder skis.

Our Trishield fabric coating is a lightweight yet ultra-tough dual layer TriShield® coating. The Pu (HydraShield) is bonded to the inside face of the fabric reducing water absorbency significantly. We have then added a very high abrasion resistant TPU coating to the outside face, this increases abrasion resistance by 13 times. This combination delivers a fabric that is lightweight, won't absorb water and will stand up to abuse in extreme conditions.
