The South Col 70 OutDry is a fully waterproof, durable backpack with a removable lid and waist belt to save on weight when carrying lighter loads. Ideal for alpine climbing, backpacking and hiking.

Mountain Hardwear says:

The one-pack solution for mountaineering expeditions on the world's highest peaks. The flexible design and highly evolved compression system lets you add and remove components as well as shrink and expand the pack as needed. OutDry construction bonds a durable waterproof membrane to the main compartment so that your gear stays safe and dry in even the wettest conditions.

The South Col 70 Outdry backpack has plenty of space for a two-day winter mountaineering trip, and strips down to the basics to help on the summit push. You can pop off the top pocket, slide out the padded Hardwave suspension framesheet and aluminum stay, reduce the padded waist belt to the simple nylon webbing belt, and go fast and light all the way to the top. When you're carrying a heavier load, leave the suspension in and walk cross-country in comfort.

The backpack is made from rugged nylon fabrics with an OutDry waterproof membrane, which will keep all the gear in the main pocket safe and dry, and features a front zip pocket that's easily accessible and maintains its volume, even if the bag is stuffed full. There are tons of lash points and straps for carrying skis, ice axes, and poles, an easy-access crampon stash pocket, and a top skirt that extends to give you an extra 300 cubic inches of space.
