The AK70 is a large expedition pack suitable for climbs in the Greater Ranges. It can manage a heavy payload of 28–35 kgs in tolerable comfort (we are not going to pretend that this is ever an enjoyable amount to carry), but still remains light enough to be used for a summit push. Its large volume is ideal for stuffing bulky, frozen gear into, whilst semi brain-dead from oxygen deprivation and encumbered with big clumsy mitts. As well as being remarkably light for such a capacious pack, the AK70 is substantial enough to impart a feeling of solidity and security, to the point that some people have actually tried bivouacking in one (OK, they were desperate – it's not really big enough).
 
This revised AK70 employs a roll-top closure system under the hood. Uniquely within the AK range, the AK70 also features a dual-wrap hip belt. Although not heavily padded or particularly large, this transfers the load onto the hips very effectively and enables heavy loads to be carried with some small modicum of comfort.
  • Removable floating large lid with zipped poclet - quick and easy to fit or remove.
  • Roll-top closure system for main sack body.
  • Oversized back haul loop - easy to grab and clip.
  • Top compression strap.
  • Side compression straps.
  • Roll top closure.
  • 40mm webbing waistbelt with low-profile full-sized hip-fins.
  • 4mm drawcords - can be used for emergency abseil anchors.
  • Internal sleeve for hydration bladder with an oversized port for insulated tubes.
  • Two ice-axe holders.
  • Stretch wand pockets.
  • Reinforced double-layer base panel.
Fabric: Kevlar/Cordura. Frame: 8.00mm 7001-T6 alloy M-frame/12mm Titanium centre stay. Please note that this Kevlar fabric is very tough and very light - the downside is that it fades in sunlight and the seams can look a bit tatty, these minor issues should be considered as part of the character of the sack not as a fault!
 
Capacity: 70 + 7 litres.
 
Weight: 1500g approx.
 
Please note that this sack may have what looks like an internal lid pocket without a zip. This is due to a manufacturing error but does not effect the performance or use of the sack in any way.
