Mountain Hardwear SummitRocket 20


The Mountain Hardwear SummitRocket 20 litre pack is a feather-light vest-pack for rapid ascent alpinists, and comes out of the range inspired and part developed by Ueli Steck.

Incorporating a new concept in super-lightweight, unrestrictive alpine packs which combine the comfort of a race vest, coupled with the minimum volume required for a summit pack, the SummitRocket is designed for easy on-the-move accessibility, without the need to remove the pack. The compression system also allows for on-the-move adjustment and eliminates bounce, whilst stabilising the load - keeping the pack close to your body at all times.

In a nutshell, the Mountain Hardwear SummitRocket 30 litre is specifically aimed at the serious alpinist climbing super fast, requiring easy access to crucial gear and the volume of a summit pack which fits like a vest.
