A place for everything, and everything in its place

Engineered with ski-touring in mind, the Ortovox Haute Route 40 is a seriously well-thought-out technical alpine pack. There's a dedicated attachment point for just about everything you might need on the mountain, whether that's your skis, snowshoes, snowboard, crampons, ropes, ice axe or poles. You've also got easy-access pockets for your map and your avalanche safety kit, plus an integrated helmet net. And of course a load-lugger like this needs a super-comfortable carry system – featuring an ergonomic back system with an S-shaped stabiliser to distribute the load between your back, hips and shoulders. Built in incredibly tough and water-resistant materials, access to the light-coloured interior is either via a convenient top zip or a wide clamshell-style opening round the back panel

  • If you’ve spent much time in the Alps, chances are you’ve seen a lot of folk sporting Ortovox kit. It’s one of the biggest and most well-respected brands in Austria and Germany, backed up by the kind of mountain heritage that most companies can only dream of.

    Ortovox started out more than 40 years ago making avalanche transceivers and other rescue equipment, and to this day they’re still the go-to outfitters for mountain rescue teams, alpine guides and extreme mountaineers. Get your hands on an Ortovox pack or garment and you’ll soon see why. The construction and quality of this stuff is on a whole different level, right down to tiny details like the buckles and merino mesh inserts. It’s gear you can rely on day-in, day-out, in seriously spicy conditions – and thousands of mountain professionals genuinely do just that.

    Ortovox kit has a very distinctive, technical look – and their background in mountain safety means they’re big on bright colours that make you easy to spot in an emergency. But the materials bear closer inspection too. They’re huge champions of the properties of natural wool, and they’ve been using it in performance mountain gear since the 80s – putting them streets ahead of other manufacturers who are only just rediscovering nature’s original miracle fibre. As a bonus, this also makes their products very environmentally friendly, and the entire winter range is now climate neutral. 

Very comfortable backpack with well thought-out features.
