Fast-paced evening ski tour planned? Then the Larice 18 is your ideal companion! Not only is it incredibly flexible, it also has room for everything you need on a fast tour. The breathable and secure straps come from the trail running sector and provide superior flexibility on performance-oriented tours.
Despite its compact design, the Larice 18 offers plenty of storage space: special options for avalanche shovel and probe, user-friendly diagonal ski attachment and a shoulder strap compartment for energy bars, gels and other provisions. In addition, you can attach an ice pick and helmet to this ski touring backpack and integrate a hydration system.
Another highlight: The Larice 18 is "OSRAM ready" and can be outfitted with the optional OSRAM Light me up Kit. This active lighting system improves your visibility in the dark. The backpack is made with eco-friendly, water repellent Eco Finish and is manufactured without the use of fluorocarbons (PFC).
