The Arc’teryx Alpha FL 30 Pack is an ultralight backpack for quick alpine, ice, and rock climbing trips. Arc’teryx has skipped the top lid on the Alpha FL and replaced it with a RollTop closure, effectively saving weight and providing additional weather resistance. An external zipper pocket allows small items to be secured with quick access. The N400r-AC2 nylon 6 ripstop fabric is durable for the rigors of the mountain and is PU coated on the inside and out to prevent water and snow from making their way into the pack. Thermoformed shoulder straps use Burly Double Weave and Hypercell foam for a comfortable carry as well as a foam backpanel for structure. Two ice axe loops and a bungee cord lash crampons and additional tools to the outside of your pack to protect the gear on the inside. A nylon webbing waistbelt ensures the pack stays centered on your back so you can worry about finding the best way up.

ARC'TERYX MEASUREMENT GUIDE
How to Find Your Foot Measurements
Arc'teryx packs are sized either in 3-length options: Short (S), Regular (R) and Tall (T), or in 2-length options: Short/Regular (SR), and Regular/Tall (RT).
Sizing refers to YOUR OWN BACK LENGTH
Measure your Back:
• Measure along the spine between the 7th cervical vertebra and the level of the hip iliac crest
• Compare this measurement to the Sizing Charts
• It is possible to interchange different size shoulder strap and hipbelt components on many Arc'teryx Packs, but this will not change or affect the back-length of the pack.

Perfect bag for hiking and travelling abroadI pack super light when going overseas (never bring a checked-bag). This is my new 1-and-only bag for taking overseas. It's waterproof (held up perfectly in a recent snowstorm), durable, and super light weight. The padding is minimal, but so far it hasn't been an issue. ,,,,I highly recommend it for any situation. It's also now my new bag for school -- gotta keep the laptop dry in case there's ever rain on the walk/bike ride home!

Durable, Short TravelI am very excited to get this backpack about 5 months ago. I have a 54L+ but thats too big. This 30L is the perfect size for short travel. It is designed to be packed with the full capacity, however the straps help if the bag is not packed fully. The fabric is like rain jacket, thicker than I expected, so I would expect it to be more durable. The backpack is comfortable and good for the shoulder and back.
