Alpine Luddites

Avalanche Gear Pocket

This pocket is designed to fit all of the Alpine Luddites Climbing packs ordered with compression straps: White Light/White Heat, New Day Rising and all Alpine Machine packs. I'm happy to build one to fit a pack already purchased, just contact me first.


Designed around the best-constructed shovel on the market, the G3 Avitech.  I offer four fabric options:

 Xpac X51 Cordura fabric, the dark grey model. 

Xpac D40 , the laminated Dyneema/polyester fabric. silver only.

500 D Cordura/Dyneema grid fabric. black only



water-resistant YKK zippers are standard for this bag, so when your stuffing it with wet gear or your down jacket after a break, water can't get in or out.


shoulder straps are a no cost option.
