Load lifter strap 20 mm is also included
38 mm belt is also included

The pack is fully usable frameless.

 Ωmega framed Alpisack version is available here.

FAQ: Omega pack VS KS pack + optional tube frame? Omega frame is also removable, KS packs + optional tubes are lighter, more packable and allow you to use your own DIY tube. Omega system is more ergonomic (Low possibility that the frame touches your back), more comfortable (better load transfer) and allows you to load heavier (reinforced parts). Wider opening allows for easier loading and unloading. 66 models allow placing the bear canister horizontally at top, near the neck, moving the center of gravity more forward.

Default collar extended at maximum


Y top strap option start above
 the load lifter strap line



BV500 is compatible horizontally only at inside top of Omega 66
or Omega Alpisack. If the pack is too empty to receive it at top,
put it vertically inside or horizontally at outside like in picture bellow:
