The Alpha SK 32, a pack for backcountry touring. Designed so you no longer have to compromise, Arc'teryx have taken the tough, streamlined, weather resistant attributes of their much-loved Alpha FL climbing pack and combined them with crucial touring features.

On the front, you'll find a modular carriage system. Supplied with exclusive patent-pending TPU straps, the Alpha SK can be quickly set up for diagonal ski carry. For versatility, additional straps can be purchased and paired up with the lash points for either A-frame ski carry or vertical snowboard carry.

A partial lid closure opens to reveal access to a front pocket, designed to store your shovel, saw and probe. The adaptable under-lid space can also be used to secure a helmet, skins or rope if required. With access via the top or side, packing and retrieving items from the main compartment is quick and easy.

Well prepared for winter conditions, the Alpha SK is constructed from proven Arc'teryx AC² fabric. Hardwearing and weatherproof, it ensures this high-calibre pack can handle the demands of backcountry touring in style.
