Ortovox - Haute Route 40
Unlike the smaller models, the main compartment of the Haute Route 40 can be accessed from both the top and the back. So important items are always close at hand! A separate safety compartment guarantees immediate access to emergency equipment. Thanks to the rope attachment on the lid, you can pack and unpack your rope without having to open the backpack. The Haute Route 40 is extremely abrasion resistant thanks to the use of Cordura® and double-layered 420D Manstar nylon. What’s more, the PU coating on all the materials makes it water resistant. The backpack sits perfectly thanks to the load control cords and O-Flex back system, which distributes weight evenly between the hips and the shoulders. This ensures maximum comfort even with heavy loads. The A and D-skifix options on allow for both classic and diagonal ski attachments, and the other carefully considered fixtures are equally impressive: In addition to the crampon fastening, ice axe and hiking pole fastening and fixed helmet net, there are also fasteners for a snowboard, for example. A practical map compartment and key holder complete this roomy ski touring backpack. Thanks to its numerous clever details and high volume, our Haute Route 40 is the best companion for long ski excursions, even in the most remote corners of the Alps.
