Exped Serac 45: Weatherproof & puristic all-season alpine backpack

The Serac 45 is the ultimate companion for mountain lovers who want to travel quickly and easily. The high-quality 420D ripstop nylon with sealed seams reliably keeps out moisture and snow. The large main compartment with a white interior coating ensures optimal organization, while the roll-top closure and water-repellent zippers keep the contents dry.

The Serac not only scores points with its functionality, but also with well thought-out details such as a long side zipper that allows quick access to the essentials. The spacious front compartment offers space for winter equipment, and the Serac also has two ice ax holders and daisy chains for additional fastening options.
