Mountain Equipment Tupilak 37 Alpine Pack earned “Best In Gear” by Rock & Ice Magazine

The Tupilak 37 was selected because it “caters to the wants and needs of alpinists, offering impressive carrying capability, durability and comfort, while being outstandingly minimal and weighing only 20 to 27 ounces … Several innovative design ideas make this specialist pack stand out, including the robust one-handed Grapple buckle fastening system; the over-the-top leash for securing ropes or cinching the bag neatly when carrying less; the internal roll-top dry bag, and the floating EVA foam ‘hip fins’ on the waist belt. The pack sits out of the way when climbing, and the tapered shape distributes weight well when fully loaded; equally, it packs down neatly when carrying minimal loads, making it extremely versatile and as appropriate for multi-day winter alpinism as single-day fast and light outings.” — Rock & Ice magazine
