Light weight, tough, and nothing that can go wrong.
This is a great bag, can take loads of abuse. Lightweight and very comfortable, it only has one zip and is not cluttered with random straps and pockets every were. there really is nothing that can go wrong. it's slim shape helps keep you balanced on awkward terrain, its the perfect bag is you plan to go on long mountain days or long multi-pitch routes; yet it still has the volume for a 3 day expedition.

Having waited a while for the excuse to buy a new pack - a trip to the Alps beckoned. Having used a trusty AK37 for several years (light weight, durable, straight forward design, superb at carrying skis) I decided to try its bigger brother. The "X" bit kept slipping off during the heavy rain, until I realised I hadn't secured it properly. Once fixed it performed brilliantly! Enough strap adjustments to make it comfortable, but not so many to be complicated. The light weight element was a bonus on ascents, and climbs were a dream when you could tighten the pack to lie snug and streamline into your back. Strong material took a battering from ice axes and crampons without rips, or visible damage. Strong work Crux!
