Live from OutDoor 2007: Mutiple Everest Summiteer Kenton Cool has brought his expertise to Mountain Hardware’s latest mountaineering backpack showing at the OutDoor 2007 show.
The Dihedral 40L technical mountaineering pack boasts a range of features informed by Kenton’s experience at high altitude.
"One of the changes I insisted on was finding replacement buckles on the compression straps," says Kenton. "The originals were fiddly to open and I needed something that would be much easier to operate with my hands in gloves."
The streamlined bag features interchangeable, moveable compression-carrying straps and loops that can hold a huge range of gear from ice axes and crampons to snow anchors and marker wands to snowshoes and skis.
The Dihedral is as light as possible but still super robust. Replace the lid and padded hipbelt with the alternative minimalist straps, and it allows you to shave off even more weight.
To get your hands on the Dihedral technical mountaineering pack, you’ll have to wait until Feb 08. For now, drool over this pic.
