The Arcteryx Altra 85 LT Pack is an expedition pack that is loaded with technological advancements that allow it to comfortably carry heavy loads over all kinds of terrain. Ice axes, 8 days of food, oxygen tanks and the entire first season of 24 on DVD, it can effortlessly haul them all with the help of the pivoting Load Transfer Disc™. The pear-shaped Altra design holds the pack close to the body, to limit load movement and allow for extended comfort. The Wingman™ side pockets are accessible without removing the pack to prevent constant stop-and-go. The Altra 85 also offers a number of other "quality of life" features like a U shaped kangaroo pocket and a dual-zippered lid. Comfort, convenience and all-out hauling power.

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.

Amazingly Comfortable and Adjustable for heavy loads.I have been using this pack for a couple weeks now and cant find anything wrong with it! It's a fantastic pack! I have already notice a few trips where I don't even feel like I am carrying a pack at all. I really like the adjustable shoulder straps to accommodate my broad shoulders. And I recommend using the provide grease packet for your first trip out or the squeaky disc will drive you mad...thank goodness I had music to distract me! I also have to say the easily accessible space for a water bladder is great as well. I just placed an order for the waterproof pack cover! I am very impressed with Moosejaw and there amazing customer service!

Great product to load all your gears!85L is on the larger size of things but it needs to be that big for me to fit my ,,other gears in while it’s being checked on the airplane. The innovative load transfer disc ,,on the back really does work and keeps you comfortable with a heavy load. When the bag ,,isn’t full I also found that it did a really great job of cinching up nice and tidy. ,,Zippers run the full length of the pack meaning you can access it from the top to get ,,to everything that has sunk to the bottom.

Big and ComfyI've had this pack for about a year and love it! I take it everywhere. I really like the zippered side water bottle pockets (huge upgrade from mesh) and the U shaped zipper on the front which allows you to access all of your gear without messing it all up. this thing is huge though, if you're only into weekend trips size down to the 65L.
