Aero 35 Ortovox

We went climbing and used another interesting Ortovox rucksack, the Aero 35.
Rope, climbing shoes, a set of quickdraws... and off to the mountains. After a few days of testing, here were our thoughts:

The Aero 35 is a technical daypack, well thought-out and lightweight, suitable for both climbing and walking.

It immediately becomes obvious that weight was a major consideration when designing this rucksack.
In fact, the Aero is part of Ortovox's "performance" range, which stands out for its light weight and compactness.
The Aero comes in three different sizes:18, 28 and 35 liters.

In spite of its light weight, the Aero is extremely robust. The fabrics used (Cortec 500 and Cortec 600) are highly resistant and the added reinforcements make it suitable for even the heaviest of use.
Careful attention to detail has resulted in flaps for the external straps (ice axe, crampons etc.) - these can be neatly tucked away when not needed. The waist strap can be stowed away in its specifically designed flap when not needed or when it gets in the way (for example, when climbing).

The Aero's single compartment is compressed by a practical and innovative volume control system. By simply pulling a drawcord, the volume of the entire back reduces to an optimum. Side compression straps are no longer needed with this new system.

The rucksack is closed via an adjustable central strap and the lid sits snugly. It contains an internal zipped pocket for small accessories.
