Pros: Crampon pocket, ability to shed padding for lighter pack, ice axe head lockers
Best Uses: ice climbing, alpine skiing, alpine climbing
The Gregory Alpinisto has been revamped. Gregory unleashed it at this years 2012 Winter Outdoor Retailer show and it looks pretty sweet. A favorite amongst climbers the Alpinisto is featuring Gregory's new Fusion Flex suspension system as well as a full body zipper running along the side of the pack. This allows you to easily grab the items you need without unloading the whole pack. Gregory also added a crampon pocket on the front featuring a super durable fabric, so you won't have to worry about those sharp crampons.
This pack also features a small bivy pad for a quick rest or in case of emergency, an ice tool head locker which keeps your ice tools from waiving around and snagging all your gear, this way they are kept snug under the crampon compartment.
Another cool feature Gregory added are the sled pull attachment points on the waist belt, and removable padding from various parts of the pack allowing you to lighten the pack by up to 35%
The Alpinisto will be available in two sizes; 30 Liter and 50 Liter. Gregory says the pack will be available fall 2012.
