Blue Ice Warthog 45L


The Blue Ice Warthog 45L is a tough, minimal and streamlined backpack designed for fast and light multiple day winter ascents.

The big brother to the 30L Warthog, the Blue Ice Warthog 45L is a favourite amongst alpine guides due to its capability to withstand extremely intensive use, whilst featuring just the bare minimum accessories and nothing else. The helmet holder, rope carrier and top-loading design optimise carrying capacity during the approach, and there is a separate pocket in the top lid to keep your wallet and keys safe when opened at the belay. Providing comfort when climbing there are thermoformed ergonomic removable back panel and ALPINEPRO shoulder stabiliser straps. There are two ice axe carrying straps, two hauling points and compression straps found down the side of the rucksack.

The low-profile removable hip belt won’t interfere with your harness and the rucksacks compact design ensures maximum freedom of movement when you’re climbing, while remaining convenient with its shoulder folder webbings integrated gear loops. The Warthog holds up to the harshest abuse and makes an excellent fast and light rock and ice climbing, and mountaineering pack.
