Product Description Item No.   10300054

The Arc'teryx Alpha FL 30 Backpack is a ultralight pack for speedy climbing routes to the summit. FL means fast and light so you can get to the top and back without breaking your back. Well, it might be laden down with all the gear you need but the pack itself won't be dragging you down at just 20 ounces with 30L of space. Pile it all in and cinch the top closed, securing a rope on top. The zippered front pocket holds onto quick-access items like snacks and the exterior bungee holds a hardshell when not in use or even your crampons. Ice axe toggles secure your tools when not in use and the overall fabric of the pack is durable and weather resistant to make it through changes in weather and years of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Bomber Bag for Scrambling / Alpine Hiking I bought this bag in an attempt to become more fast & light with my hiking and I was not disappointed. The bag is super light and comfortable on long trips while still being burly enough to handle rubbing up against rocks, trees, ice - pretty much anything! I used it on several scrambles this summer and the waterproof roll-top was especially helpful when bad weather rolled in. Even if you're just using this bag for your rainy commute, the roll-top proves to keep the contents of the bag bone-dry. All in all - this bag has outperformed my expectations and is an essential piece of gear in my collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minimalist alpine pack Extremely light, but still very comfortable to carry even semi heavy loads. I like that the top is not a roll closing, so that you can decide yourself whether you need "completely" weatherproofing. It is really easy to attach axes, and the elastic wepping easily carries your crampons or a jacket. The material is quity sturdy, but I have some small holes in mine after some weeks of abuse. Maybe you could make a hole to a water hose above the inner closure, so you still have a very weatherproof pack. My exeperience with this bag is so good, that I now bought the 45 liters to cragging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, versatile pack This is an excellent pack for climbing and all-round use. It can carry the essential climbing gear and carries a heavy load remarkably well. It has also been my daily bicycle commuting backpack and it handles the rain well. As to it's durability, I was recently in a cycling accident and was thrown off my bike at a decent speed and landed on my back, with the pack still strapped on. I was shocked to see no tears or visible scratches in the fabric and after a quick hand washing it looked as good as new!

Hipbelt Sizing
SIZE Small Medium Large
Men's 27 - 32" 32 - 37" 37 - 42"
Women's 25 - 30" 27 - 32" 30 - 35"

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.
