The Crux is designed for classic mountaineering, the AK47 is small enough for shorter climbs yet big enough for multi-day routes. It will take a heavy load of hardware to the bottom of a route with sufficient comfort, but when empty is so light that you hardly notice it on steep ground. The features have been pared to the brink of absolute necessity, with enough detail retained to allow each climber to tailor the pack to his or her unique style. The 3rd generation version launched in 2015 and it features a new fabric with a higher 40% Kevlar content and a Titanium malleable and removable frame.
