The AX50 is the same as the AX45, but with a floating, removable lid for greater versatility in packing different size loads. If we were comparing these to the AK range, whilst the AX45 is basically an AK47, you could say the AX50 is an AK47-X.
The AX50 has every necessary feature that is required from an all-round big mountain or alpine sack. It weighs just over a kilo and does so without any compromise in toughness and durability. It’ll handle every piece of abuse you can throw at it.
As with the AX45, the AX50 takes the existing AK carrying system that has been modified to allow the hip-belt to be removable.
The AX50 comes in a two back lengths – regular (for those up to around 5’11” or 180 cm) and long.
|Fabric||15% Dyneema / 85 % Cordura, 150 g/m², ripstop|
