DESCRIPTIONThe Ortovox HAUTE ROUTE has been around almost since the birth of ski touring. That's reason enough for a new addition to this tried-and-tested line: With its large volume, our new HAUTE ROUTE 40 / 38L Short is perfect for ski excursions lasting several days.
Unlike the smaller models, the main compartment of the HAUTE ROUTE 40 can be accessed from both the top and the back. So important items are always close at hand! A separate safety compartment guarantees immediate access to emergency equipment. Thanks to the rope attachment on the lid, you can pack and unpack your rope without having to open the backpack.
Even the largest version in the HAUTE ROUTE line of backpacks is now extremely abrasion resistant thanks to the use of Cordura® and double-layered 420D Manstar nylon. What's more, the PU coating on all the materials makes it water resistant. The backpack sits perfectly thanks to the load control cords and O-Flex back system, which distributes weight evenly between the hips and the shoulders. This ensures maximum comfort even with heavy loads.
The A and D-skifix options on allow for both classic and diagonal ski attachments, and the other carefully considered fixtures are equally impressive: In addition to the crampon fastening, ice axe and hiking pole fastening and fixed helmet net, there are also fasteners for a snowboard, for example. A practical map compartment and key holder complete this roomy ski touring backpack.
Thanks to its numerous clever details and high volume, the HAUTE ROUTE 40 is the best companion for long ski excursions, even in the most remote corners of the Alps
The Ortovox HAUTE ROUTE backpack line has been around almost since the birth of ski touring. Following a new makeover, Ortovox is now sending the HAUTE ROUTE 40L/38L Short out ski touring. This backpack is now much lighter and, thanks to the use of Cordura® and double-layered 420D Manstar nylon, even more resistant to abrasion.
Ortovox has also revamped the O-Flex back system: more technical and slender in appearance, it distributes the weight in a tried and tested way between the hips and shoulders to ensure outstanding wear comfort.
Typical in this tour backpack are its many features and the access to the main compartment from the back. This new version also comes with crampon fastening, a fixed helmet net, a map compartment and an external rope fastening.
