Peak Light 38 S (Fall 2022)



The Peak Light 38 S is Ortovox's alpine lightweight and your companion for demanding alpine tours. It is extremely light, technical and functional thanks to a climate-controlling SWISSWOOL TEC KNIT back system. With a packing volume of 38 liters, this backpack provides sufficient space for multi-day ski tours – without compromising on comfort.

The Peak Light 38 S alpine touring backpack is specially tailored for people with shorter backs and thus sits perfectly. This backpack is very robust yet incredibly light thanks to the use of particularly tear and abrasion resistant Nylon 420D Oxford material. This nylon fabric is one of the lightest materials that Ortovox uses for their backpacks. The material is also water-resistant thanks to its PU coating.

The triangular construction of the lid allows for variable adjustment with rope fastening without slippage. The lid is completely removable or storable in the main compartment. When stored in the main compartment, the lid’s zipper can still be easily opened. The lid compartment has two sections. Taped seams make the lid completely waterproof.

And Ortovox has integrated additional important features: The Peak Light comes with a rope and ice axe fixation, load control cords, helmet net, material loops, hip pocket, a map compartment and a circumferential zipper for quick, front access to the main compartment. Safety equipment is held securely inside by means of a safety attachment. In addition, standard Ortovox pack features include an emergency card, chest strap with signal whistle, compression strap, bright interior color, hydration system compatibility and a ski holder. These clever features, low weight and the innovative back system make the Peak Light a highly functional alpine touring backpack where doing without means greater functionality.

    SWISSWOOL-TEC-KNIT back system
    The SWISSWOOL-TEC-KNIT BACK SYSTEM stands for the innovative synthesis of a TECHNICAL FOAM BACK with HEAT-PRESSED SWISS WOOL covered with a 3D HIGH-TECH KNITTED FABRIC. The wool pads are used in the zones that come into contact with the back, storing large volumes of moisture without feeling wet.

    The PEAK LIGHT combines STABILITY, WEAR COMFORT and a LIGHT WEIGHT. The total weight of 1100 g* can be reduced by a further 380 g* by simply removing the TOP, HIP FINS, WIRE FRAME FOR THE BACK and other external fastening options. A minimal 720 grams* of weight thus widens the range of use, from long alpine tours to pitch after alpine pitch.

    * +/- 4% due to production and material fluctuations.
