Patagonia's midsized Descensionist Pack 32L has a lightweight, fully featured design that meets all the needs of backcountry riders out for the day in varied terrain. Durable CORDURA® nylon fabric makes the Descensionist extremely light and supple, but still provides burly puncture and abrasion resistance. The Descensionist has an asymmetrical spindrift collar that opens wide for easy packing and closes with the tug of a drawcord that simultaneously cinches the collar and closes the lid instantly for a secure seal against blowing snow. A handy side-access zipper provides an alternative entry to the main compartment and lets you access your gear quickly, and a zippered top pocket on the lid makes sure your small essentials stay handy. Your shovel and avy tools have their own zip-closing pocket that features internal elastic cording to keep everything organized and allow instant retrieval. The suspension system includes a padded hip-belt with a stretch-woven stash pocket and a removable high-density foam back panel for structure and support with heavy loads. Compression straps make it easy to pack a snowboard or a pair of skis, and two sets of daisy chains provide multiple lashing options.
