There’s only one other thing that can put a smile on your face as big as when you finish a stellar powder descent and we all know what that is—going back and doing it again (what were you thinking?). Built for the freedom of the unbound backcountry, our new Descensionist Pack has a lightweight, fully featured design that meets all the needs of core backcountry riders out for a long day in varied terrain. The durable CORDURA® nylon fabric makes the Descensionist extremely light and supple, but still provides burly puncture and abrasion resistance. It has an asymmetrical spindrift collar that opens wide for easy packing and closes with the tug of a drawcord that simultaneously cinches the collar and closes the lid instantly for a secure seal against blowing snow. A handy side- access zipper lets you get the goods in and out of your pack quickly. Your probe and avi tools have their own zip-closing pocket that features internal elastic cording to keep everything organized and allow instant

Measurements refer to body size, not garment dimensions, and are in inches, unless otherwise noted.
Though each Patagonia® product is designed and shaped specifically for its intended use, we can generalize our fit descriptions in four ways:
Formfitting: Conforms to the body’s contours.
Slim Fit: Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.
Regular Fit: Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers.
Relaxed Fit: Drapes loosely on the body.
