Developed over the course of 3 years and refined through more than 35 prototypes. We are really pleased to introduce to you the new Tupilak range of packs by Mountain Equipment.

Mountain Equipment have done a superb job of designing, developing and refining a pack that every climber and mountaineer could ask for. Featuring exclusive, custom developed fabrics, trim and components as well as a meticulous approach to functional design, these packs are simple, lightweight and durable. The Tupilak 45 is the bigger cousin to the 25 litre version and is a prime example of how every climbing pack should perform like.

The ability to move unimpeded both on the approaches and climbs themselves is perhaps the hallmark of the perfect alpine pack. The Tupilak range of packs have been constructed with a Diabolo profile, an hour glass shape that provides load stability as well as packability. Each pack is marginally wider at the base and at the top therefore improving stability and making packing in gear easier.

Lightweight, high density EVA foam used throughout the back-panel, shoulder straps and removable hip-fins provide support and comfort. The thermo-moulded hip-fins provide additional support for carrying heavy loads and can easily be removed when not required. Having had numerous staff try these packs on, we are really surprised as just how well they fit. Whether you are under 5 foot or over 6 foot, we can't quite put our finger on how Mountain Equipment have got the fit so right - and this is only having the one back length! The opening closure on the Tupilak range of packs is unique in its own right. The Grappler system is a one-handed pack closure system which features an easy to grab 'lobster tail' and pincer hook which provides a fail-safe 'grapple-lock' on to the cowl's integrated webbing spine. Clever indeed!

Of course no climbing pack comes complete without a durable face fabric, no matter how functional the pack may be. PACT fabrics have been a huge part of the three year development. Featuring PACT 300 and PACT 100, these highly densely woven fabrics feature a double rip-stop construction, a DWR face-coating and a micron TPU coating on the inside. Combined together, these fabrics result in the perfect balance of durability, low weight and weather resistance.

With simplicity and functionality in mind, the Tupilak pack comes with removable components. These include the sternum straps, shaft tethers and ice axe toggles. Saving weight and easily replaceable should they become worn or damaged.  The front shock-cord system provides additional functionality for carrying items on the outside of the pack, two strong haul loops, a removable back panel, accessories pocket and an internal weather-proof cowl, with a roll-top closure helping to seal out spindrift.

The Tupilak 45 pack is a pack designed for climbers and mountaineers seeking simple and functional design, be it on rock, ice or mixed ground. The Tupilak range of packs have proven incredibly popular with staff and customers so far!

    Mainland UK

    Please not that as of March 18 2020 Parcelforce will be suspending service guarantees. As a result of this we have removed the option for next day delivery as we can no longer guarantee it. We will resume a next day service as soon as it is possible.

    We aim to dispatch all orders within 24 hours.

    Free UK shipping is available on all orders over £25. Smaller items will be sent with Royal Mail Tracked 48 and bulkier items and orders over £400 with Parcelforce (this is a signed for service).

    All customers will receive an e-mail with tracking information. This e-mail is generated when your order is processed but in some cases the parcel will not leave our premises until the following working day. For Tracked 48 please allow 3-5 days for delivery especially at busy times of year.

    If you want your items quicker, we offer a Priority Next Day Shipping option at an additional cost of £4.75. This is available on the checkout page and the cutoff time for this is 14.30. This service is for mainland UK orders (N. Ireland, Highlands & Islands excluded) and is a signed for service. In most cases we use Parcelforce Express 24 but, in some instances, we may use Royal Mail 1pm Special Delivery. You will receive an automatic tracking e-mail with a link to your parcel details.

    There is also the option for Saturday Delivery at a charge of £18. This service is for UK orders only and guarantees delivery on the next Saturday morning. Orders for this service must be placed before 12pm on the Friday before. This service also requires a signature on delivery.

    Please note that for orders to N. Ireland, the Highlands & Islands, next working day / Saturday deliveries cannot be guaranteed. Please call if you have any specific out of area delivery requirements.

    Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee delivery times.

    All items are advertised subject to availability. If we are ever out of stock of an item and cannot supply within a few days, we will e-mail or phone you. You will have the option to cancel your order, wait or accept an alternative.

    We are a small retailer, and while we do have a modern EPOS system mistakes can still happen. Inevitably we may therefore occasionally sell out of an item that is still showing on the website as in stock. If we have sold out of an item, we cannot always repeat or supply future stock at the same price.

    Royal Mail parcel post typically takes 3 working days (90%), as does second class letter post (98%). Over 90% of first class letters are delivered the next working day.

    Overseas Shipping Charges

    Our overseas shipping and postal charges outlined in the tables are based on the following approximate weights.

    Parcels shipped to Europe – Up to 20Kg

    If your parcel is heavier or especially bulky we will e-mail you with a revised shipping quote. You will not be obliged to pay this, however we reserve the right to refuse the order if the shipping costs are not paid. We will do all that is possible to keep the shipping costs to the minimum while still using a quality and reliable service.

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    Estimated Delivery Dates

    Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

    The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.


    Thanks for choosing his item ...
