The Ascent Range

The very first product Lowe Alpine designed was a climbing pack. Greg Lowe designed the Expedition pack so he could carry big loads in the mountains without compromising on stability and comfort. 50 years later the all-new Ascent range continues that tradition.

 

The Ascent range is a new collection of all-mountain packs designed for climbing, mountaineering, alpinism and ski-touring. The range features backpacks designed for those operating at the cutting edge of alpinism  as well as people just getting started with climbing in the mountains.

Designed by mountaineers, for mountaineers, all packs in this range feature the revised and improved HeadLocker ice axe attachment system which offers quick and easy ice axe attachment while wearing gloves. Other features include sculpted shoulder straps for greater freedom of movement, snowshed back systems and tuckaway or removable hipbelts.

A dual-fabric design features throughout the Ascent Range, combining a tough TPU coated fabric for high abrasion areas, with a lighter but strong plain weave for areas with less exposure. These fabrics ensure durability whilst keeping the overall weight low.

All our packs in this range are light, simple and functional and combine innovative new materials with refined designs. Whatever adventures you have in the mountains we have the perfect pack for you.
