Two new highly technical packs are rounding up the Arc’teryx ascent packs collection for Spring/Summer 2016: Cierzo 18 and Cierzo 28.
Both packs offer a glove friendly main opening with a pull to open, pull to close drawcord system. The adjustable top strop can be used to compress the pack or lash a climbing rope to the exterior of the pack. The smart SwiftCordTM drawstring style compression system is accessed and stored in the pack’s external front pocket. Dual quick hooks allow for variable configuration of the compression cords.
For carrying ice tools or mountaineering tools, the Cierzos have lightweight Aluminium bars integrated in the SwiftCordTM system.
Thin padded shoulder straps on the Cierzo 18 and padded ones on the Cierzo 28 as well as sternum straps and webbing waistbelt hold the packs comfortably in place.
The padded back panel on the Cierzo 28 is removable when not needed and makes this pack almost as packable as his smaller brother Cierzo 18.
