      Tupilak Vest Packs

      Matt Glenn, South Ridge of the Diablon des Dames, Zinal, Switzerland

    A technical vest pack for fast moving mountain days across the seasons; as stable and light as a running pack and as rugged and functional as a climbing pack. The Tupilak Vest Pack treads the line between technical climbing and mountain running.

    The Tupilak Vest Pack has been developed over the course of more than a dozen prototypes, in close collaboration with some of the world's best mountain runners. It's been designed to offer something unique, with an exceptionally stable carry load, outstanding durability, and a set of features suitable for everything from mountain running, to big climbing days and enchainments.

    Behind the design

    'Our aim was to create something that combines the ruggedness of a climbing pack with the form-hugging stability of a running vest, a piece of equipment intended for moving quickly in the mountains. Tested throughout development by some of the finest climbers and runners around, their feedback helped us refine every detail; from the compression wings that stabilise the load to the simple to use tool stowage and convenient access points. Sharing the same custom fabrics as our iconic Tupilak packs – with proven durability over countless ascents along with highly breathable stretch meshes on the contact areas.'

    David Wallace, Senior Equipment Designer, Mountain Equipment.
