The AX35 is a lightweight version of the AK37. It has the same feature set, but is made from our exclusive Cordura fabric with a 3 mm Dyneema ripstop, and is stitched rather than welded. It also features our new lightweight 9mm flat titanium stays. Although not as stiff as the tubular ones found on the AK37, these provide adequate support to carry a big rack and a couple of ropes. The carrying harness has the identical specification to our AK range, and in particular maintain the same hip-belt design that has been much acclaimed.

The AX35 comes in a single, unisex, back length.
