DetailsCotopaxi designed the Tarak primarily for multi-pitch lead climbing and backcountry skiing, allowing you to efficiently organize and streamline the gear you depend on. The beauty of the pack’s design comes courtesy of its no-frills, purpose-driven features, each added with the core climber and skier in mind. The innovative ice tool system is the perfect example of this, which consists of a durable “bucket” of fabric at the bottom and securing straps at the top. That’s it. This eliminates unnecessary toggles and loops, making the system simple to operate while in the elements, even while wearing gloves. On the back of the pack, there are configurable compression and lash points, giving you further options for arranging your gear. A zippered top lid lets you access small essentials, and it doubles as an additional lash point for a climbing rope. A hydration sleeve, low profile shoulder straps, and a removable waist belt make the Tarak perfectly suited for backcountry skiing and day hiking as well. Like all Del Día items, each Tarak is made with repurposed materials, which means no two are alike.
