Big days in the backcountry require planning, plenty of gear, and quick access to avalanche safety essentials.

The Soelden 42 is our largest technical backcountry ski pack designed with hut tours in mind. This high-volume snow pack offers both ski and snowboard carry options. It’s built with top-end materials to keep it as lightweight as possible on grueling ascents and a stable fit for dynamic descents.

An easily accessible front panel pocket houses your avalanche safety kit while the top and backpanel provide two means of access to the dry main storage compartment.

This pack is made with a PFC-free DWR coating that sheds moisture.
