The ArcTeryx Alpha FL 30 is an ultralight and highly weather resistant 30 litre climbing pack suited to fast and light alpine, ice and rock routes.
Alpha FL (Fast and Light) packs were created for climbers and alpinists who want a light, durable and highly weather resistant rucksack that is pared down to be as simple as possible. No extraneous straps or parts. To save weight and provide the climber with easy access to contents, the traditional top lid has been replaced with a RollTop™ closure and an external security pocket. The RollTop™ provides a weatherproof seal, extends the packs volume and when not needed tucks inside the pack for quicker access. External lash points can be used to attach tools, crampons, extra layers, helmets, sleeping pads, etc. Shoulder straps are soft-edged and carry extremely comfortably with heavy or light loads.
Ultralight and fast, highly weather resistant and alpine strong, the Alpha FL 30 is built for climbers. An intense focus on the realities of moving fast on rock and ice led to this versatile, streamlined rucksack that combines leading edge fabric technologies, performance focused design and a confident simplicity.
Light by Design: Every element is carefully considered. Each feature has a specific reason. With no extraneous materials or aspects, the Alpha FL 30 sheds grams without sacrificing strength or performance.
Material Differences: Arc'teryx developed N400-AC², a unique nylon fabric that sheds weather. PU coated inside and out, the fabric is water, snow and even air-impermeable. The RollTop™ closure shuts out the elements, and the seams are taped to complete the seal.
Focussed Features: Focused attention to detail includes a white interior for heightened internal visibility, a glove-friendly draw cord opening for ease of access in freezing conditions, and a unique laminated shoulder strap construction that delivers comfort without unnecessary weight.
Fast & Light: The pack weighs a mere 610 grams (21.5 ounces) and is optimised to work with our companion gear. Use it in tandem with our Alpha FL jacket and pant for an ultra-fast, ultralight, alpine-ready set-up built for the harshest conditions.
