The Croz 38-liter pack has been stripped down to just the features a mountaineer needs to reduce weight and eliminate extras that can break or just get in the way. Still, this sub-3-pound pack gives you secure storage for ropes, ice axes, and crampons while keeping the main compartment completely accessible from the top. The narrow, ergonomically shaped hip belt is designed to fit comfortably with a harness or can be completely removed for an extra streamlined setup. The lid’s adjustable height allows you to expand the Croz from 38 to 46 liters, allowing the pack to become exactly as big or small as you need. For an ultralight, minimalist experience, you can remove the hip belt, lid, and internal aluminum frame while still maintaining secure storage for all your essential climbing gear.
