Lowe Alpine Cholatse 42:47 Blue NightRegular price $329.95
The Cholatse is an ultra-comfortable, high-quality hiking/trekking pack designed for year-round use. The adjustable AirContour+ backsystem allows it to fit almost any body type.
Lowe Alpine use a tough yet lightweight 210D Robic Ripstop nylon throughout the main body of the pack and a bombproof 420D polyester in the base. The main fabric offers a high degree of abrasion-resistance thanks to its ripstop construction and features a HydroShield coating for added water-resistance if you happen to get caught out.
Access into the pack is achieved via two methods: either unclip the two buckles and flip the lid over in the traditional fashion or unzip the entire front of the pack for total access to your kit. An internal zipped divider panel gives you plenty of options for organisation — for example, wet kit in the bottom, dry in the top.
Outside, a large front pocket allows you to stash a wet tent flysheet, soggy overtrousers or other items you don't want inside the pack but need quick access to. Large stretch mesh side pockets comfortably hold 1L water bottles, while zipped hipbelt pockets provide a perfect place for snacks, a GPS or a small camera. An external lid pocket is a great place to pop a map, gloves or a mat and can be accessed quickly and easily. If you'd rather not use bottles, the pack is hydration compatible. Daisy chain loops give you the option to attach extra gear which won't fit inside and Lowe Alpine's 'tipgripper' pole attachment comfortably holds a set of trekking poles when not in use. For total waterproof protection from the rain, a raincover is included and stashes away neatly. Finally, the entire pack is expandable by 5 litres — simply loosen off the lid straps and the internal valance will extend upwards.
