The Alpine Machine Packs
Light and Tough. Just what you expect in pack designed for alpine climbing or multiple seasons of ice climbing. Like all the packs built at Alpine Luddites I expect this to hold up to 100's of days in use. The Dimension Polyant DX40 fabric is the toughest fabric, for it's weight, I offer.
After you order a pack, customize your Alpine Machine Roll Top here: Customize. Here you can choose from all features; waist belt, harness size,bivy pad, crampon and ice tool attachment, webbing color and size, fitting issues, ect. once the order is submitted i'll contact you to set up a phone call or email chat to make sure everything is to your liking.
The Alpine packs differ from the White Light/ White Heat in several ways; They are all larger in volume. They have removable, fully padded hip belts. The bottom of the pack is contoured cut to fit better and work better with the padded hip belt. it is available with a fully removable lid.
The Alpine Machine is available in 3 volumes; 40, 50 & 60 liters. Features are identical throughout the range.
standard or custom sized back length
This pack is available custom sized back length and hipbelt. there is no reason to make do with a poor fitting pack. I can accommodate people with 13" torso to tall men who need 23". There is no extra charge for custom fitting. It just takes a while....about 4-6 weeks. faster than a custom bike frame.
Construction: this pack is built with only two main seams that attach the two body panels together. There is no need worry about blown stitching either. all seams have multiple passes at 8 -10 stitches per inch. compare that to most mass produced gear. All seams are taped for durability. All webbing attachment points have 6-8 lines of stitching. I no longer use bartacks in the laminated fabrics. My experience has been they pull through over time as the fabrics are stiffer and become weakened by the bartack. All webbing stress points are fully reinforced with a second lay of webbing on the inside of the pack.
How to order: place your order by choosing your choice of options from the menu. once your order is placed I will either email or set up a call, and we will go through all the details of size, volume, materials, colors, etc..
