Ortovox Peak Light 40


The PEAK LIGHT 40 backpack is our alpine featherweight and your companion in demanding high mountain excursions. It is extremely light, technical and particularly functional thanks to the new SWISSWOOL TEC-KNIT back system for temperature management. With a volume of 40 liters, the backpack offers enough space for multi-day hikes in the high mountains without sacrificing comfort.

SWISSWOOL-TEC-KNIT back protector

The SWISSWOOL-TEC-KNIT BACK PROTECTOR is synonymous with the innovative synthesis between a TECHNICAL FOAM BACK and SWISS WOOL, HOT PRESSED and covered with a HIGHLY TECHNOLOGICAL 3D KNIT FABRIC. The wool tablets are used in areas in the areas of contact with the back and store large quantities of moisture without giving the sensation
to be wet.

Modular for maximum lightness

The total weight of 1200 g * can be reduced by another 420 g * by removing the COVER, the ABDOMINAL STRAP, the aluminum frame and other different external fixing options. Thanks to the minimum weight of 780 g *, its use campo is extended, ranging from long hikes at high altitudes to climbing on long routes in the mountains.

* +/- 4% due to fluctuations in production and material.


Thanks to the processing of 420D Oxford nylon, a material particularly resistant to tearing and friction; the backpack is at the same time very robust and extremely light. Nylon fabric is one of the lightest materials used for our backpacks. The material is also water repellent thanks to its PU coating.

The new triangular structure of the lid allows a variable adjustment to fix the rope rope and more without moving.
The lid is completely removable or stowable in the main compartment. Even if stored in the main compartment, the lid hinge can continue to be opened without any problem. The lid has two compartments. The glued seams make the lid completely waterproof.

We have also integrated other important features: the backpack for hiking in the high mountains PEAK LIGHT40 is equipped with an ice ax and rope fastening, straps for load control, helmet fastening net, material loops, side pocket as well as a compartment for map and perimeter hinge for quick access to the main compartment. The safety equipment in the internal compartment remains stable thanks to the Safety fixing. Furthermore, standard features of the ORTOVOX backpacks are the emergency tag, the chest belt with the emergency whistle, the compression straps, clear interior colors, predisposition for hydration system and attachment system for skis. These consolidated characteristics, its low weight and the innovative back protector make this backpack for high altitude excursions extremely functional for all climbers for whom renunciation means greater functionality.

Il miglior zaino per l'alpinismo
Dopo aver provato ferrino e black diamond, credo che questo sia lo zaino più completo per fare alpinismo invernale, per le sue innumerevoli dotazioni, come il copri casco ed il porta piccozze, e per la comodissima cerniera laterale.
