Every now and then new gear comes along that just makes you want to get out so you can use it! I’ve never been this excited about a pack but the Lowe Alpine Superlight 30 has me wiggin out a little.
1st - a 30 litre pack that weights 540 grams!
2nd - it’s actually comfortable. For anyone whose tried ultra-light gear before, every half kilo pack we’ve tried has pretty much had single layer nylon shoulder straps. The Superlight 30 uses laminated straps like the expensive Arc’teryx climbing harnesses. It carries heavy loads better then anything else we can find in this category.
3rd - it actually has features. It’s not just a stuff sack with shoulder straps. It even has a corrugated foam back panel that folds out to become a small bivvy mat. Awesome for fast and light alpine ascents or just sitting in for a lunch stop. .
Lowe Alpine have an amazing heritage for climbing and pack design and it’s awesome that after all these years they are still at the top of their game 🤙

From our guide team to our management, to our gear design, women are represented at every step in our process. It's not a talking point, it's just who we are and how we operate. Equally important is paying it forward and providing opportunities to a new generation of young women to join us in the outdoors. A generation that will soon take the reins from us and be the ones out in front. That's why we've partnered with @christy_pelland and the @shejumps#WildSkills program who are working to do just that - give young girls the skills for outdoor adventuring while having fun and connecting in an encouraging environment with the support of strong female mentors. This summer will be our 3rd year teaming up with them to help host their Mountain Camps. We can't wait and are looking forward to getting more girls outside to play in the mountains! #internationalwomensday
