Patagonia Descensionist Pack 40L - Backpack

Patagonia 40 liter Pack in Ink Black

The ski and snowboard variant to our Ascensionist alpine pack—this purpose-made backcountry touring pack is built to go light on the ascent but has all the features to accommodate safety tools for epic descents.

There’s only one other thing that can put a smile on your face as big as when you finish a stellar powder descent and we all know what that is—going back and doing it again (what were you thinking?). Built for the freedom of the unbound backcountry, our new Descensionist Pack has a lightweight, fully featured design that meets all the needs of core backcountry riders out for a long day in varied terrain. The durable CORDURA® nylon fabric makes the Descensionist extremely light and supple, but still provides burly puncture and abrasion resistance. It has an asymmetrical spindrift collar that opens wide for easy packing and closes with the tug of a drawcord that simultaneously cinches the collar and closes the lid instantly for a secure seal against blowing snow. A handy side- access zipper lets you get the goods in and out of your pack quickly. Your probe and avi tools have their own zip-closing pocket that features internal elastic cording to keep everything organized and allow instant retrieval. The suspension system includes a padded hipbelt with a stretch-woven stash pocket and a removable high-density foam back panel for structure and support with heavy loads. The front accessory straps make it easy to pack a snowboard or a pair of skis, and two sets of daisy chains provide multiple lashing options. Other features include a hydration sleeve and port, compression straps to manage different-sized loads and a zippered top pocket on the lid for carrying small essentials. Made from 210-denier CORDURA® 86% nylon/14% polyester with a polyurethane coating. The base is 420-denier CORDURA 100% nylon plain weave with a polyurethane coating.

Love this Bag September 15, 2017
Reviewer: Ben from California  

I guide in Denali National Park in the summers and was looking for a good summer/winter bag. This is it! Super simple, two areas to put gear. The side zipper that opens to the main compartment is great when digging around for extra layers. I keep my medical kit and maps in the second, outer pocket. Very excited to use this backcountry skiing this winter. The outer pocket is perfect for my avi gear. Nice that there is a small hip pocket and hole for a water bladder hose. I'm a 5'7" lady and the S/M fits great. This is the most comfortable pack I've had in years.
