The PEAK LIGHT 40 is our alpine lightweight and your companion for demanding alpine tours. It is extremely light, technical and even more functional thanks to the climate-controlling SWISSWOOL TEC KNIT back system. With a packing volume of 40 liters, this backpack provides sufficient space for multi-day ski tours - without compromising on comfort.
This backpack is very robust yet incredibly light thanks to the use of particularly tear and abrasion resistant Nylon 420D Oxford material. This nylon fabric is one of the lightest materials that we use for our backpacks. The material is also water-resistant thanks to its PU coating.
The new triangular construction of the lid allows for variable adjustment with rope fastening without slippage. The lid is completely removable or storable in the main compartment. When stored in the main compartment, the lid's zipper can still be easily opened. The lid compartment has two sections. Taped seams make the lid completely waterproof.
And we have integrated additional important features: The PEAK LIGHT 40 alpine touring backpack comes with a rope and ice axe fixation, load control cords, helmet net, material loops, hip pocket, a map compartment and a circumferential zipper for quick, front access to the main compartment. Safety equipment is held securely inside by means of a safety attachment. In addition, standard ORTOVOX backpack features include an emergency card, chest strap with signal whistle, compression strap, bright interior color, hydration system compatibility and a ski holder. These clever features, low weight and the innovative back system make the PEAK LIGHT a highly functional alpine touring backpack where doing without means greater functionality.
SWISSWOOL-TEC-KNIT back system
The SWISSWOOL-TEC-KNIT BACK SYSTEM stands for the innovative synthesis of a technical foam back with heat-pressed swiss wool covered with a 3D high-tech knitted fabric. The wool pads are used in the zones that come into contact with the back, storing large volumes of moisture without feeling wet.
SCALED DOWN TO REDUCE WEIGHT
The total weight of 1200g* can be reduced by a further 420g* by simply remocing in the top, hip fins, aluminium frame for the back and other external fastening options. Its minimum weight of 780g* means it can be used for even more activities, such as climbing multi-rope routes.
* +/- 4% due to production and material fluctuations.
Ortovox came to life with the invention of the first double frequency transceiver to aid in avalanche victim searches. With their passion for keeping skiers and snowboarders safe, Ortovox has grown into one of the biggest producers of avalanche safety gear on the market. In 1995 they added merino underwear to their selection, and we have been hooked ever since!
