Blue Ice Warthog 40L

2   |  

The Blue Ice Warthog 40L is a tough, ultralight-weight and streamlined backpack designed for long technical routes and alpine guiding.

Added volume and enhanced features make the 40L big brother of the 28L Warthog climbing pack suitable for longer adventures. Similar to its smaller sibling there is a helmet holder, rope carrier and a handy quick-release skirt opening system to access to your gear. The lateral compression straps can be used to transport skis and the ice tool holders are perfectly designed for carrying a set of technical tools. The thermoformed ergonomic back panel and shoulder stabiliser straps are designed to provide maximum comfort when carrying loads, and the front haul loop proves to be highly convenient to hang the rucksack at belays.

The compact design ensures maximum freedom of movement when you’re climbing and the incredible durability of the Warthog 40L makes it the perfect companion for all of your most demanding rock and ice climbing, ski touring, and mountaineering adventures.

Brilliant 40L r'sack

My third Blue Ice pack and absolutely love it - minimalistic and comfortable. Quality material and construction, slim built and alpinesque; a joy to wear and use. Love the helmet carriage system, the simplicity (no excess required) and the feel of quality. Highly recommend this model and Blue Ice as a brand.


Very basic, very comfortable to

Very basic, very comfortable to walk with normal climbing weight despite very minimalistic hip belt, fabric seems bombproof only time will tell. The wholel closure system is excelent, must have made improvements to helmet holder as it fastener very easily even with winter gloves on. Climbs fantastic!
