Oryx minimalist backpack
35 litre light, minimalist, and low-profile pack with roll-top closure weighing 535 g for fast and light alpine climbing
Sometimes, all we crave are those fast and light days in the mountains… Less of a week-long slog, more of a big epic day out packed with exactly what you need: nothing more, nothing less.
Streamlined, tough, weather resistant, and really really light. Oryx is a 35 L minimalist backpack with an off-the-scale capacity for its weight, designed to give you exactly what you need for minimalist alpinism.
An innovative design makes the Oryx as light as 535 g. To reduce weight, the backpack features stripped-back chest and waist straps and back system, without compromising comfort and support in use. Oryx is available in two back lengths, with removable padding that lets your really shed those last few grams and a low-profile to improve manoeuvrability. Compression straps keep volume low when you’re carrying less, and Oryx rolls up compactly for when you take it on your travels.
Oryx may be incredibly light, but thoughtful finishing touches add mountain functionality. The external pocket for maps and guidebooks is designed to not eat up the main compartment, and the interior pouch and key hook are ideal for valuables. Axe loops and a top compression strap provide multiple attachment options, and a no-nonsense roll-top drawcord closure allows for overstuffing to really maximise the space.
On those hero days you need a pack you can trust: highly tear resistant and waterproof VX07 makes Oryx super hardwearing. Like all our UK-made packs, Oryx is backed up by a 25-year Alpine Bond warranty and custom options are available.

Fitting guidance: To select the correct back length measure from the top of your hip bone to the top of your shoulder. This should place the waist belt over the middle of your hip bone and provide the most comfort for carrying loads. Select a shorter back length if you prefer to wear your rucksack higher up your back, when climbing for example.

Not quite what I expected
I have always had rucksacks that had zips. So when the onyx arrived and it is closed by rolling the top and clipping it I considered returning it.
But previous rucksacks have wore out because of broken zips so I decided this is a positive.
It is not as neat as a zipped rucksack.
It is very light - think supermarket plastic bag. Hopefully tougher.
The shoulder straps do not have much padding so not sure what it will be like with a heavy load. I generally use a rucksack for shopping and commuting but for longer trips, I get imagine the onyx can hold a lot.
