With its 40-liter carrying capacity, the Black Diamond Anarchist Avalung Pack is a solid choice for the backcountry skier who is going farther and wants more space for extra layers, food and equipment. Popular with ski guides and those who work in the snow, the pack has a dedicated pocket for avalanche safety tools while the integrated Avalung system means you’ll never forget the life-saving tool when skiing in backcountry terrain.
The 40-liter size allows you to bring enough gear for an overnight trip to a backcountry hut, but is small enough to cinch down for days at the resort. You can carry your skis in an A-frame style or diagonally, like a ninja. The pack also has an insulated hydration sleeve and a removable hipbelt with pockets.
But perhaps the best part of the pack is simply blowing into your Avalung and making that deep, reverberating sound like you’re playing an alpenhorn in a Ricola commercial. Of course, the Avalung could save your life, too.
The Anarchist Avalung pack is Black Diamond’s largest Avalung pack option. It’s a versatile, do-it-all choice for skiers venturing deep into the backcountry. But take note that this pack does not carry snowboards.
For skiers, this pack keeps you organized and ready for when disaster strikes. It allows you to venture into the backcountry well prepared for the curve balls that your day may bring.
