Explain The Alchemist 40L

Live Your Adventure™

2012 Outside Gear of the Year Award Winner.

A tough alpinist pack, our Alchemist 40 has been honed to handle exactly the tools necessary for reaching big objectives. The expandable design hauls what you need to base camp, then straps down into a smaller pack for the final summit push.

"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."
Outside Magazine

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."

"The Alchemist 40 is simple to use, lightweight and carries heavier loads well. I also can't imagine a better pack for versatility. If you are establishing a high camp and then going for a lighter–weight summit day, this is the expandable pack for you."
