Fast, lightweight and safe
Lightweight, streamlined, quick ski touring backpack for ambitious athletes
A minimalist in the ultra-lightweight ski touring backpack segment, the TRACE 18 S focuses on the essentials without compromising on protection or comfort.
- Complete comfort and light weight despite all essential features
- Removable 2FOAM back panel for increased stability and protection
- Reflective elements ensure better visibility and thus more protection in the dark
- Shorter back system for smaller people
Fast, lightweight and safe: Weighing only 430 grams, the TRACE 18 S ski touring backpack is made for sweat-inducing ascents and fast descents.
The TOUR SERIES sets new standards with its removable 2FOAM back panel: It is soft on the outside for comfort and fitted with firmer foam on the inside to protect against injuries such as those that can be caused by emergency equipment. Another special feature of this lightweight ski touring backpack is its reflective elements, which ensure improved visibility and added safety in the early hours of the morning or the late hours of the evening.
With its shorter back system, the TRACE 18 S is designed specially for smaller people. Avalanche equipment can be stored in the main compartment, while also leaving plenty of room for clothes and other material. The close fit also offers the ultimate freedom of movement for ambitious ski tourers. Air-flow shoulder straps also ensure the backpack has good ventilation and the weight is distributed optimally. And for those times when speed is of the essence: The large mesh side pocket with two openings provides direct access to drinks, trail bars and other small items. Additional features such as a diagonal ski fastening, ice ax and hiking pole fastening, and integrated helmet net make the TRACE 18 S a dedicated ski touring partner.
Sustainable business practices also play an important role when it comes to hardware at ORTOVOX, so our TRACE backpacks are produced by a small business that has been audited by the FAIR WEAR FOUNDATION (FWF) and sets an outstanding example for good working standards in Vietnam.
