I just returned from three weeks of guiding in the Alps around Chamonix and France. I was traveling light since Dylan Taylor loaned me ropes and a rack, but my bag quiver was 100% dialed for the trip. Here’s what I was using:
Mutant 38: My go-to pack for almost everything alpine. Perfect size for multi-day, hut-based climbing trips. Light, simple and comfy on the summits.
Shuttle 110: Sized impeccably for the 50-pound airline weight limit. Not phased by thumping down thousands of train station staircases. Indestructible.
Flap Jack Courier: My Manpurse. Permanently fixed to my hip in urban arena.
Digistow: Stows my Canon G11. A locking biner secures it to my harness.
Cell Phone Case: Perfect for Foretrex 101 GPS and Oregon 450 GPS. Can’t get lost with clients!
