Product Description Item No.   10207088

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Backpack I LOVE my glorious Altra. I have a 65 L, but needed more volume when the daughter and or wife comes backpacking, and for unsupported excursions longer than 6 days. The 85 Altra is volumous, and fits me as perfectly as my 65 (just with more weight if course..). I have a smile on my face using these packs-just amazed at the high level of comfort they bring backpacking. The 85 definately looks bigger than a "normal" backpack, but so what? It is so comfortable to carry I usually dont even take it off when we stop for a rest on the trail. I just hope Arcterx comes back with the Altra: They are the most perfect Backpacks ever made!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Room for Everything Took this pack on a week long trip to Costa Rica and I underestimated its potential to store all of the essentials I would need. I ended up overpacking and paying the price for it at the airport. You can easily overpack because this bag will accommodate everything PLUS the kitchen sink. Be careful! Especially if you're flying because before you know it, you'll be out of 200 bucks in oversized luggage fees. Ouch! Happy travels!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freedom!!! The Altra 85 is a fantastic pack! I have an uneven pelvis thanks to a few big crashes over the years, and my past pack would list to one side when I walked. No amount of adjustments to the straps or weight distribution could fix it. The Altra's swiveling hip belt was a hugely attractive feature to me. I took it out on a three-day ski touring trip last weekend and am happy to report that it was magical! My pack felt like it was floating, and it stayed in line with my torso. Wow! My last multi-day pack was the Arcteryx Bora 75. I loved it, loved all the features, and the fabric, zippers, and clips are fully functional after 15 years of hard use. Naturally, I looked to Arcteryx for my next pack. I'm a 27-year-old female, about 5'8" and 145 pounds. I was enticed by the idea of a women's bag that was designed for my body, but the biggest size offered for the women's bag is 62L and that just doesn't cut it for me. I took a chance and went with the men's Altra 85 and it fit perfectly. The straps are comfortable; not too big, not too small. And the ability to unzip the entire pack like a suitcase makes loading it up a dream. The side pockets are easy to access; I could grab trail mix without taking off my pack. Last point: the bag can be compacted and used as a day pack. Other friends can't do this with their multi-day packs as they're too bulky. I love the streamlined design of the Altra. I'm really looking forward to the 15-20 years we're going to spend together. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable. Very durable I bought this pack with hopes that the high cost would pay off. I've been on many multi day hikes with plenty of camping gear packed with me. This pack has incredible space! It stood up well when the rain started. none of my clothing or gear got wet. I love the rotating hip belt but do find the straps slip slightly. With 60+ lbs in the pack, I was still quite comfortable and felt there was plenty of support. Overall, Great pack. Worth the extra few buck for dependability!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Pack I bought the Reg?tall in Carbon Copy.The suspension system is just fantastic. The shoulder straps are very easy to reposition to get an exact fit. The hip belt on the disc is a novel idea, and works really well. It stops the pack from swaying side-to-side on your shoulders. The stability of the pack is really noticeable, and for me reduces fatigue with a heavy-ish load (approx 25kgs) whether walking or scrambling. The fact that you can remove the hip belt and wrap it around the pack for travel is also great. Keeps the belt in the right shape. Buckle holds the tension well and doesn't slip. U-pouch is good for grabbing something buried deep without having to empty the pack. Big zippered pouch on the back great for stowing wet Theta AR jacket and Beta AR pants or went tent fly. Zippered wing pockets near the hip belt will easily hold 1L water bottles and trailmix. Camelback sits in its own pouch in the centre of the pack. Side compression straps will look after your hiking poles when you're not using them.The top compartment detaches from the pack, but unfortunately you cannot use it as a day pack, which is a pity. For me that would have made an awesome pack almost perfect. I got the pack cover which is huge.This is great because it allows for things hanging off your packet to be covered too. Compression straps allow you to tension it up nice and tight so it wont catch the wind or the scrub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked well, durable. Solid design, UI, and accessibility. So far this is the best pack I've found. I can attest that this pack will bear 80+ pounds and feel surprisingly good. Even when others are describing the load as appearing "comically large". As comfortable as I was with 80 pounds is a testament to the fit and comfort of this pack. I was able to focus on the pain in my leg muscles and lungs. I love that this pack unzips in a full U-shape for full access to the main compartment. The extra zipper compartment on the back works well for jackets, rain covers, filters, and other things you want to pull out in a hurry. But you can always put it down and unzip the perimeter of the main compartment, as long as you haven't stuffed it so full it's difficult to re-zip. (Which happens to be my M.O.) It seems rugged, I've overstuffed parts of it without problems, although that's never a good idea. The side compartments where the hip belt joins the pack seem strange but are actually a good way to maximize otherwise unused space, and they do fit a standard Nalgene. The cover has two compartments and they zip as one would expect, at the top, as opposed to my old Osprey Aether which zipped more near the bottom, like it was designed to dump everything instantaneously out on the ground. The bladder sleeve is in the center of the back where you expect it, and the bottom of it can be unvelcro-ed from the back of the pack so it can be turned inside out to clean and dry. I would say the mobility features, primarily the rotating hip belt connection do seem to work well, and it feels more mobile than other packs I've tried. You can feel it rotating as you step. Only slight issues: - I would think a Regular would fit me pretty well, 5'10", ~31" waist, ~170#. But it's almost too small, I have to tighten it to the very max, there's no webbing left. - The back padding is fine, but it's not really vented. I assume Arcteryx could not figure out a way to make it feel like it's really attached to your back. Osprey webbing is nice and cool, but it does lead to disconnection of movement. So far, I've liked the connection and not really noticed the missing ventilation till I take it off and my shirt is soaked. So I prefer this trade-off. - I wouldn't mind real compartments on the hip belt rather than meager webbing. And there are no compartments on the shoulder straps, although I suppose this may violate Arcteryx simplicity too much. Still, I would totally use them. - There is narrow vertical webbing on the front of the shoulder straps, but lack of lateral webbing makes it harder to attach things, although I suppose you can rig something through the vertical webbing.

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.

Items that are damaged through wear and tear, misuse, or neglect may be repaired at a small charge.

How do I send back an item for Warranty, or get an item repaired by Arc'teryx?
For Customers in North America and Europe, Arc'teryx recommends that the product be returned to the store or site where it was originally purchased.

If this is not possible, fill out their online warranty form which can be found HERE. They will email you with full instructions on how to send your product to their Warranty and Repair Center. Do not send your item to them without first obtaining an RA number from Arc'teryx.

Arc'teryx is not responsible for items that are lost or damaged during shipping and cannot replace parcels that are lost during return shipment if proof of tracking is not available. Please use a guaranteed delivery service that provides tracking information, insurance, and proof of delivery when sending an item back to Arc'teryx.

For customs purposes, Arc'teryx requires you to provide them with a PHYSICAL address, however, your warranty/repair item can still be shipped to a PO Box.

How do I contact them with questions?
Complete their Warranty or Repair Request Form. If you have any questions or concerns, you can reach their Customer Service department at 1-866-458-2473.

What is and isn't covered under the Warranty Policy?
Defects in materials or workmanship are covered for the practical lifetime of the product. Material refers to zippers, buckles and fabrics. Workmanship refers to seams, seam tape and construction. Damage due to wear and tears such as rips, tears, abrasion or UV degradation, misuse or neglect is not covered under Arc'teryx's warranty policy but may be repairable for a fee.

What is covered under the Warranty Policy on Arc'teryx footwear?
Defects in material and workmanship will be covered by Arc'teryx for the practical lifetime of the product. The practical lifetime for footwear can vary drastically depending on the frequency and type of usage. Things such as the wearing of the outsole, frayed laces, nicks and tears can indicate that a shoe has surpassed its practical lifetime. These are examples of wear and tear or damage which are not covered by Arc'teryx. If you believe there is a defect in material or workmanship present on your product, please see follow the instructions on how to send it to Arc'teryx for assessment.

What does 'practical Lifetime of the product' mean?
Although Arc'teryx builds their products to last over extended periods of time, nothing lasts indefinitely. Materials will deteriorate and fade over time and moving parts will wear out. Arc'teryx will cover your product under their warranty policy until such a time that they have deemed the product to be worn out beyond reasonable repair. If the product is showing the signs of its age-for instance, the material has become thin or faded, there are rips and tears, the zippers no longer catch, the cuffs are fraying, or the soles are worn-they will take this into consideration when assessing your product for a warranty request. All gear will suffer from differing degrees of wear-and-tear, depending upon the user. Equipment used by an outdoor guide for 150 days a year will by comparison, degrade faster than gear used by a weekend skier. By taking care of your equipment you will ensure a longer lifetime for your gear. Arc'teryx recommends that you visit their Product Care page for more information on how to wash and care for your equipment.

Will Arc'teryx repair or replace my product?
If your Arc'teryx product fails due to a manufacturing defect, where possible, Arc'teryx will repair the item at no charge to you. They have repair centers in both Europe and North America that employ the same custom machinery and techniques that they use to create the original products. If the product is not repairable, or the cost of the repairs exceeds the value of the product, Arc'teryx may, at their discretion, choose to replace the product instead.

What happens if I rip or tear my jacket or pants?
Skis, snowboards, crampons, axes and other sharp equipment will damage clothing and gloves if they come into direct contact with them. Rips, tears, burns and punctures can occur during normal use and while carrying your equipment, and are not covered under the terms of the warranty. To assist you in keeping your product in optimal working condition, Arc'teryx offers a variety of repairs for a reasonable charge. Contact them and they will be happy to discuss your options.

What if I want to have my garment altered or tailored?
Arc'teryx does not offer custom alterations or modifications to their packs or garments at this time. For products made from GORE-TEX® fabrics they suggest using a GORE-TEX® authorized repair facility for alterations. There is a list of GORE-TEX® authorized repair shops in your area on the GORE-TEX® website.

Do alterations void my warranty?
Arc'teryx understands that individuals may, on occasion, wish to tailor their Arc'teryx products to suit their needs. If something should fail which is unrelated to any alterations, Arc'teryx will stand behind their products, provided that the Arc'teryx product is being used as intended. For a list of alteration facilities in your area, please visit the GORE-TEX® website.

How long will it take if I send my product in for warranty assessment and/or repair?
The typical turn-around time is 15 to 20 business days from the time they receive your product to the time they ship it back to you. Keep in mind that winter is the busiest season for warranty and repair service. Arc'teryx will provide you with updates and more accurate estimates throughout the process.

How do I prepare my item for return to Arc'teryx?
