Lowe Alpine attack 40 winter pack (old style)

Excellent condition, red & black top load solid duty pack used for only a few winter high peaks day trips a year. This is a climbing/summit style pack with no side pockets – great for trekking thru trees in snow. The only outer pocket is on the back for easy access to crampons/micro spikes (drainage at the bottom). It can also hold 1L Nalgene, mittens, hat etc.

There are great attachments for ice axe, skis, poles and snowshoes. The top has a large main pocket & smaller security pocket. Height adjusts & can be removed. The main compartment (40 L) is hydration compatible (rt side only), includes a tri-fold emergency bivy pad and has 2 compression straps each side. For day trips it easily held all my gear & extra down coat.

Lowe’s “torso fit system duo” allows custom strap height adjustments. Padded main straps with sternum & great waist pad/strap make this a very comfortable & close fitting pack. As a result, balance and stability for backcountry skiing far easier than with other pack designs (I fell less).

Details from 1998 review of this “full featured” pack here: https://www.trailspace.com/gear/lowe-alpine/attack-40/

Looking for $50 (plus shipping). I live near I87 exit 8A. I’m becoming a snowbird so will be selling a few winter specific things. I have a great 40 L Osprey pack that works for my few winter outings now.
