Dynafit Broad Peak 28 Backpack

When you go higher in the mountains, use the Broad Peak to get your stuff there.

Born from a racing pedigree of bags, the Dynafit Broad Peak 28 Backpack holds true to its minimalist roots while stepping up for longer ski-touring days. Organize your layers and climbing gear for days when going light still means going safe.

  • Back-panel access to main compartment lets you easily see and organize your gear even with skis attached to the backpack
  • Anatomical back system with Airmesh holds the bag closer to your back to prevent bag-swing on the ascent and descent
  • One-handed Dynafit ski attachment system for loading skis on-the-go when seconds count
  • Crampon safety box on the outside of bag is padded to protect fragile or sharp gear
  • Mesh skin pocket holds skins for yo-yo laps on powder days
  • Hydration-system compatible for reservoirs or a water bottle (removable water bottle holder included)
  • Dynafit ice axe holder holds your ice axe close to your back for easy access and to prevent it from swinging and taking your partner’s eyes out
  • Front tool pocket organizes your avalanche gear to prevent the important stuff from banging into your ultra-light lunch

Versatile backpack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Pros: light, compartments make organization easy, decent amount of room, comfortable (I am a smallish framed female) even after 14 hours. This is great for both rec skimo racing (if you're super hardcore a smaller one is going to be better) and for touring all day if you don't need to pack multiple coats. I can fit all my Avy gear, a small puffy, food, extra gloves and hats, an extra base layer and a few thermoses. Also the cup holder on front is handy for beverage or snacks.

Cons: while the ski carry is easy in most ways the strap has to be pulled out and I find it tricky because it springs back into the pack as soon as I let go which requires some skill getting my ski tips through the loop before it disappears or gets too small.

Well thought out!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Spent a couple of hours fiddling with everything that's supposed to go inside (and outside) and in front of the mirror before I took it out - think I figured it out. Holds everything I need for a day tour in the Wasatch. Shovel is difficult to fit, but I have a Voil� with the probe inside the handle, so that worked. Shovel is in the main compartment and it actually creates a nice cavity for stuff.
Ski carry system is awesome! Works with my Voil� Insanes, which are fairly wide - field tested. Not sure though how the loop will work with skis with a lot of tail rocker!
Haven't used it for ski mountaineering yet, with crampons, ice axe, and rope but I'm sure that will work too.
Thought I wouldn't use the bottle holder, but it actually is a nice feature: with some snacks in the pocket you're good until it's time for lunch - without taking your pack off.
Mesh pockets for skins are a nice feature - quick and easy to access.
Most importantly, it doesn't interfere with my BD Avalung sling.
Overall a super lightweight pack with all the features you need for a day tour.

Did you ever get it out with axe/crampons/rope all packed? Seems like a perfect pack for quick/short dawn patrol missions.

All the Bells and Whistles

The pack has all of the bells and whistles for short Alpine Touring trips. Unless you're a light packer, you're not going to fit overnight supplies, but it works great for day trips.

Broad Peak Pack Design & Use

This probe holder is too short. Only 32cm...

This probe holder is too short. Only 32cm . Or my pack is defective ?

At first glance it appears that way but if you open up the back panel and look inside the main compartment there is a small hole that connects the main compartment to the probe sleeve which allows your probe to extend into the main compartment once it reaches the bottom of the probe sleeve. There is also a hole that connects the main compartment to the lower compartment (safety box) which allows your probe to then drop into that compartment. It's a bit of a pain to get the probe in but it will fit.

What is the maximum ski width this pack will allow?

This roop is ajustable. The size of this roop is 34cm. So, maybe 15cm width you can use.
