Alpinismo 55 Backpack by High Peak USA Review

Product Rating: 
4
Picture of High Peak Alpinismo 55 Backpack

Features:

From High Peak USA, "The Alpinismo 55 is so versatile. This 3 lbs, 5 oz., single compartment backpack is made for the multi-use trekker. It has daisy chains to attach gear to and an outside envelope for ropes or crampons. Is the 55 liter capacity too much this trip? The side compression straps wrap around the front to the opposite side of the pack so you can minimize your gear load and still keep everything securely in place."
