axiomLowe Alpine’s new Axiom Manaslu 55-65L pack is the ultimate load carrier, and we have one men’s and one women’s model up for grabs – in fact, the winners will get their hands on it before it even hits the shops!

The Manaslu incorporates the latest Axiom 5 back system and is ideal for multi-day treks and expeditions, being tough enough to take knocks and scuffs all day long. AXIOM system Designing packs that offer unbeatable levels of support and comfort has always been the priority at Lowe Alpine. The latest development – the Axiom back system – has taken load carrying and length adjustment to the next level of efficiency without compromising on performance. The Axiom packs are real workhorses, designed to do it all; from big mountain expeditions to year-round travel, the Axiom helps to keep you comfortable in the world’s wildest environments. Once again, Lowe Alpine  have improved this incredible carrying system for 2016.

The Axiom 3, 5, and 7 models offer a range of load-carrying support depending on the amount of weight being carried, and a simple back length adjustment system offers an instant and precise fit. The hip belt and shoulder harness have been re-engineered to increase carrying comfort, and ventilation on the back has increased to maximise breathability, without compromising on support. The Axiom Manaslu uses the Axiom 5 back system which features just one pull cord for easy adjustment (Lowe Alpine’s simplest adjustment system), a rotating hipbelt, and a high-spec ventilated aerator back.

The pack itself is a serious load carrier and features: front and lower entry, giving you wide access to the contents inside; a large front stash pocket for quick access; a load lifting handle; daisy chain lash points which allow you to add items to the outside of your pack. The Manaslu also features hipbelt pockets for small items that you may want quick access to while on the move. It is hydration compatible and also has stretch water bottle side pockets so that you can stay hydrated on the trail. Unique walking pole tip grippers offer secure storage, as do the stowable ice axe loops.
