Description

We have combined our knowledge and experience with the latest technology in ultralight materials to make the ultimate 55L ultralight mountaineering/climbing pack. Named after one of the most iconic features in the Blue Mountains, the Solitary 55 combines the trifecta of ultralight, durability and comfort.

This pack has been tested in the fierce Australian bush, Mt Denali, the alpine peaks of Europe and the vast Red Rock of Nevada. Designed by a team of people that have decades of experience is climbing, mountaineering and hiking, we know you will love this pack as much as we do.

The body of the pack is made from UHMWPE - Ultra 200 X or DCF (Blue) which has a tensile strength that is 15x stronger than steel. It is incredibly lightweight, abrasion resistant, waterproof, UV resistant and is incredibly hard to tear. 

The back of the pack is made from Ultragrid™ – a true innovation in sustainability and strength. Ultragrid is woven at a Bluesign® approved facility with 210d recycled yarn from pre-consumer industrial waste and is interwoven with Dyneema thread. Ultragrid™ provides exceptional tear-strength and visual impact.  UltraGrid™ has a C0 DWR coating, free from toxic PFCs, and is finished with a waterproof 1500mm PU backing.

We have incorporated an UltraStretch™ pocket into the hip belt – ideal for a large smartphone and snacks.  UltraStretch™ which is a 4-way stretch mesh, woven with the highest quality Ultra fibers so it will not shred when you go off track and through the bush.

The base of the pack is made from Ultra 800 X UHMWPE - a tough, highly abraision resistant, lightweight material. The Solitary 55 seams are fully taped sealed to ensure that the pack is  weatherproof. 

The Solitary 55 has a removable frame sheet. The frame sheet provides extra support during those long days moving through the mountains. However, if weight is a premium it can be easily removed saving approximately 190 grams, leaving a very comfortable cored 10mm closed cell foam pad. The Solitary 55 weighs in at an impressive 900 grams (DCF) including the frame sheet and 710g without it.

The Solitary 55 has been designed with multiple attachment points that are compatible with our Ultralight helmet net, Expedition Hood and ski/split board attachment systems
