Alpine Luddites

Alpine Machine 35L

The Alpine Machine 35L.

This pack is a slightly smaller, stripped down AM40. It's the pack to choose if you typically don't climb with a pack, but rather leave it at the base of a climb or for the Alps, Ranier etc where you stay in huts/camps but need more volume and load control than a New Day Rising pack. This pack won't climb as well as the NDR or WL/WH, but it will carry better. This pack does have full lift straps and contoured bottom, unlike the NDR.


Standard set up:

  • Full bivy extension sleeve with drawcord and/or roll top. This made out of XP21 laminated fabric, so it's fully waterproof.
  • Webbing belt. Individually sized, fully removable padded belt is an option. comes with gear loops but can also be ordered with removable pockets.
  • No Lid
  • Double layer foam back panel/ bivy pad
  • Same daisy chain, crampon patch, ice tool carrier as the NDR. However, all packs can be customized to fit your personal needs.
  • fully custom sized harness.

Once you place your order I'll email, or call, and we can go over all the details to set up your pack just how you want it: Fabric, colors, compression straps, climbing tool/crampon features, sizing etc.
