To get a worthy pack, time and energy needs to be committed to its development. I can’t tell you how many times I have spent a lot of money on a piece of gear only to use it for a season and find out everything they did wrong when designing it. Jack Wolfskin, based out of Germany, is a premier Alpine supplier in Europe. The Alpine Tour 38 is a perfect pack for your summit bid. This pack is dual pocket style with plenty of gear loops, breathable tech materials, hydration pack compatible, and attention was paid to fit and comfort. The Alpine Tour is lightweight, durable, and worthy. With everything to worry about on the mountain your gear is the one thing you don’t need to be messing around with while belaying your partner on that treacherous pitch!
