The Mens Arcteryx Altra 85 Backpack is a technical hiking pack that comes fully equipped with a versatile and practical feature set. This larger volume pack keeps weight to a minimum by using the efficient C2 Composite Construction system making it a great choice for longer mileage adventures and multiple nights in the backcountry. This innovative construction eliminates back panel layers to reduce weight without compromising on the structure or comfort of the Altra 85 pack. Included in the Arcteryx Altra series larger volume packs is their Load Transfer Disc™ that pivots to increase agility and stability on rough terrain. This larger volume bag can pack efficiently for multi-day trips and features a pear shaped design to hold the pack close to the body to minimize load movement and backward pull for extended comfort. Another great feature of the Altra 85 backpack is the full adjustment of the shoulder straps with GridLockTM, a unique system that adjusts straps for both width and height. When it comes to storage space and organization, the Arcteryx Altra packs have loads of space efficient compartments, one-handed timesaving closures and side pockets that wrap over the hip for easy access without taking off the pack, making the Altra series one of the lightest weight, fully featured bags in their class. Structural support is offered with the 6005-T6 extruded aluminum M-bar stays that are rigid and lightweight. All Arcteryx packs use premium fabrics, and the textiles used in the Altra series were specifically chosen for their durability and high wear areas on the Altra 85 have a silicone treated PU fabric to resist dirt, snow and water pick-up. The Mens Arcteryx 85 LT Backpack is a comfortable and versatile backpack for your next adventure in the great outdoors.
