Black Diamond Blitz 28 Pack
The Black Diamond Blitz 28 is a minimalist pack designed for lightweight alpine ascents. Its made from an ultralight Dynex ripstop construction that's not only durable but highly packable, making it easy to pack into a larger approach bag until needed. The one-handed top closure has been designed to let you use the Blitz' full 28 litre capacity, and a rope strap and ice axe Pick Pockets™ can be used to strap a rope and a pair of ice axes to the outside of the pack. The waistbelt and bivy pad can also be removed. Just the essential features for alpine climbing.

Ripstop fabrics are made by weaving a nylon thread in interlocking, square patterns through a base material. (You can spot its distinguishable appearance in fabrics with a raised box or diamond pattern.) As a result, rips and tears, unable to bypass this nylon barrier, are confined to one very small area and will not spread throughout the fabric.
