The Arcteryx Cierzo 28 Backpack is an ultralight backpack for climbing summits and hauling a little bit of gear along the way. When you're hitting the summit within a day you don't need to carry along the whole kit and caboodle, plus you want to keep things light on your back. Toss in your helmet, some layers, snacks, water, and any other climbing gear you may need to make it happen and get on your way. The foam back pad and sternum strap are both removable, allowing you to customize on lighter load days. Simple, streamlined and compresses with Swiftcord™.

FEATURES of the Arcteryx Cierzo 28 Backpack

  • Glove friendly main opening with a pull to open, pull to close drawcord system
  • Adjustable top strap can be used to compress the pack or lash a climbing rope to the exterior of the pack
  • Hydration bladder compatible with HydroPort drink tube passage and an internal clip to keep the bladder suspended and prevent blockages
  • Small external pocket can stash small items; internal stash pocket with key clip holds keys, wallet, phone, headlamp, etc.
  • SwiftCord drawstring style compression system is accessed / stored in the pack's external front pocket; dual quick hooks allow for variable configuration of the compression cords
  • Lightweight aluminum bars work with the SwiftCord compression system to carry ice or mountaineering tools, front flap keeps tool picks flat against the pack
  • Padded shoulder straps, adjustable sternum strap and 37mm wide webbing waistbelt
  • Padded back panel for better carry comfort removable if not needed
  • Made from N210p-HT Nylon 6,6 high-density plain weave fabric, the Cierzo is light and tough
  • Material's light weight is one of the key ways Arcteryx designers kept the Cierzo 28's weight to a mere 545 grams (19.2 oz)

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.
