Mountain Equipment Tupilak 45+ Pack - Magma Information

Season : AW21

Brand : Mountain Equipment

Code : 5065814

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!

Buyers Guide - How to choose a rucksack

Your spine is the key to good health throughout your life and making sure you protect it by carrying your kit correctly is something we take very seriously.

Thanks to modern technology, carrying heavy loads needn’t be a burden on your body. There is a TON of science already invested in the rucksacks sitting on our shelves ready to carry everything you need to enjoy your time in the hills safely and comfortably so what questions do you need to ask to make sure you buy the right one?

- How big a pack do I need?
- What is the Difference between Men’s and Women’s packs?
- Does my “back size” look big in this?
- Fixed or adjustable?
- What is the difference between sizing and fitting a pack?
- Why do I need a mirror?
- How do I choose between features?

Top tips to make the right choice:

Load carrying doesn’t need to be miserable! Once you have narrowed down your choice of packs, pop some weight in them and take some time to walk around for 20 or so minutes. Go up and down steps, try an incline – we have all these available in the shops for you to try. If you are at home we can still help over the phone and don’t forget the importance of a mirror. Our staff are experts on fitting and using packs because once you have chosen the best pack for you – the science of packing begins……
