Product Code: CX-R-AK-47-X-RT

3G AK47-X (RT)


The new 3rd generation version of the AK47-X, like the 47, is identical to its predecessor in features and function. The AK47-X is really an AK47 with an X. And what is this X-factor? A floating lid design to increase the load capacity, a configuration preferred by many mountaineers. Apart from this, don’t go looking for any other differences – there aren’t any.

This is the latest iteration of the 47-X with a roll-top closure system under the hood, and replaces the 2015 version with the drawcord.

The AK47-X is available in three back-lengths.






Removable floating lid – for more versatile load options
External and internal lid pockets with welded seams for water-resistance
Roll-top closure system for a completely waterproof main compartment
Oversized back haul loop – easy to grab and clip
Top compression strap
Side compression straps – quick and easy to fit or remove
40 mm webbing waistbelt with low-profile full-sized hip-fins
Two ice-axe holders
Stretch wand pockets
