The name of the Ultimate Direction All Mountain pack sums the pack up pretty much perfectly, it covers virtually every need of the mountain enthusisast. Have a look at what it offers...

Like a trail running pack the Ultimate Direction All Mountain Pack has plenty of storage on the front shoulder straps so you can access items quickly and easily.

With 30 litres of carrying capacity you are unlikely to be left looking for extra space to carry your gear. The whole 30 litres is also very usable so you don’t need to stuff your gear into stretchy pockets full to bursting. Most capacity is in the large main compartment which is made from highly durable, water resistant material and also features taped seams so your gear is protected inside.

Access to the main compartment is via a really easy to operate (even when wearing gloves) cinch drawcord system.

Additional access to the main compartment is via the back panel that fully unzips to allow you to see and get to anything anywhere in the pack without having to unpack it all from the top.

Secure the main compartment with the fold over lid and simply hook it closed. The height adjustable closure also enables you to compress the gear you’re carrying so it won’t move around.

Carrying additional mountain equipment such as walking poles, skis, ice axe, crampons etc. is taken care of via multiple attachment options.

The Ultimate Direction All Mountain Pack includes the All Season Kit which has ski hook & loop and bungee compression system to further enhance the packs versatility and storage capacity as well as converting a mountain adventure pack into a very capable ski mountaineering pack, and provides additional storage.

The pack is held securely in place with the sliding rail sternum straps that can be positioned at whatever height you find comfortable and retains the shoulder straps.

A removable and height-adjustable T-hook waist belt is an excellent addition for off-setting some of the weight when carrying heavier loads.
