The Elevation and Elevation Pro Backpacks are Ortlieb’s largest volume, waterproof frameless backpacks, designed for the alpine environment. They are beautifully-engineered mid-size, do-anything, backpacks with lots of great features.  I REALLY like these packs!

  • Elevation Features:  Lid closure with drawstring snow gasket; contoured, removable, padded waist belt with small stash pockets and gear loops; contoured padded shoulder straps; sternum strap with emergency whistle; 2 daisy chains for lashing; side compressions straps with buckles; attachment loops and fixing cord with drawstring for ice axes; internal pocket with zipper (can work as a pouch for hydration bladder) and key clip; internal zippered pocket in lid; helmet carry system; reinforced, abrasion-resistant base with strap slots; sealable drinking tube aperture and tube clips on shoulder straps; carrying handle.
  • Fabric & Construction:  Made from highly durable polyurethane-coated nylon with a substantial inner waterproof coating.  High-frequency welded seams provide excellent waterproofing and narrow manufacturing tolerances.
  • Observations about the Colors . . . Yes, Slate is darker and may not show as much dirt, but I like Signal Red because the fabric is somewhat translucent, and light coming through makes it easier to see into the bottom of the bag, especially nice if you are unpacking just before dark.
