From mixed winter and summer rock routes to ice wall assaults, the Ascendor 28 is as versatile as you are. With its strippable features, the Ascendor transforms from a gear hauling beast to an agile summit pack for days when you’re moving fast and light.

This lower volume pack in the Ascendor range is ideal for committed day missions and shorter routes. It’s a top loader pack with a chunky zip, built with a tough, 50% recycled fabric around the sides and base for optimum abrasion resistance, and a strong yet lighter weight, 35% recycled fabric elsewhere to keep the weight to a minimum. Abrasion, tear, and water resistant, this rugged pack copes with all conditions.
Built with multiple gear attachment points and features, from double ice axe carry to water bladder compatibility, it’s the ultimate multi-season mountain pack.

Rab has kept the weight to a minimum with lightweight features, many of which are removeable. The spring steel frame and the internal HDPE sheet can be stripped out so you can customise the weight, rigidity and fit of the pack depending on your day’s objective.

Close-fitting and designed to allow you to move freely over rugged terrain, the Ascendor 28 has a snow shedding, moulded back panel and side compression straps to cinch your gear secure. Versatile, hardwearing, and compact, the Ascendor 28 is a great choice for ambitious mountain days.
