The Thermo-molded shoulder straps also have a two-point adjustment system that can be dialed-in to fit any torso length or shoulder width.

Why should you buy this: The North Face Summit Alpine 50L is the lightest mountaineering pack on the market with a sleek minimalist design suitable for both rock and ice climbing.

This FuseForm construction weaves together 70-denier and 40-denier Cordura nylon into a single fabric used in the construction of the pack.

This combination of materials provides the Summit Alpine 50L with excellent abrasion resistance as well as a significant amount of breathability.

By fusing the fabrics, North Face also reduces the number of seams which improves its overall water-resistance and durability.

There’s also a curved back pad that hugs the body and provides a comfort unmatched by a straight back pad.
