2012 Outside Gear of the Year Award Winner.
An alpine pack for big objectives, the Alchemist 40 is a 40-liter climber that sizes up easily to 55 liters when hauling heavy loads or cleaning camps after a summit push. Adjustable lifters stabilize heavy loads of varying sizes, and the entire pack cinches down small on summit day. Intuitive design with integrated, removable bivy pad, quick-access tool release function, and exterior gear organizer.
"This shape- shifter might just replace every pack you own.
For sheer day-in, day-out versatility, the Alchemist proved the best of the bunch."
As seen in the Men's Journal Gear Lab Collection
"The Alchemist 40L is the most versatile pack available, able to transform itself to fit any adventure. In standard configuration...it's perfect for day hikes and peak bagging. Looking to escape on a longer trip? It morphs into a 55-liter pack capable of swallowing a multi-day trek's worth of gear."
