Super Deal: $99 Gregory Alpinisto

I had to take a minute to point out an incredible deal available now at RockCreek.com. The Gregory Alpinisto 35, which usually retails at $158.95, is available in limited quantities at $99.95. This customizable climbing machine is the little brother to the original Alpinisto backpack, with all the same features and technology, but in a slightly smaller package. Designed for Gregory’s Japanese market, you’ll be hard-pressed to find this pack anywhere else in the U.S. And for 99 bucks, it’s a steal!
Like the original Alpinisto, clean simplicity defines the design of this convertible climbing pack. All you have to do is remove the waistbelt padding, and the framesheet and stay to shave a full pound when you need to go from load carrying to ultralight summit bid mode. With a contoured top pocket for helmet clearance, hydration sleeve and ports and incredibly durable materials, the Alpinisto 35 is the climbing pack for anyone serious about getting to the summit.
The Alpinisto 35 is designed with the Wraptor Stabilizer system that stabilizes the backpanel and alleviates pack bounce during high aerobic activity. This is a patent pending system developed by Gregory to pull the backpanel of the pack up and in, thereby maintaining optimal stability. If that doesn’t make any sense, or if you’re a visual person, check out this diagram of the Wraptor Stabilizer System.
