15 Liter Float Pack
Focusing on designing a pack that makes touring in the backcountry more enjoyable, the K2 Backside team emphasized efficient carrying and organization of the most common backcountry necessities, a comfortable fit and eliminating all excess straps, clips and buckles. The result is a clean, comfortable pack that efficiently uses all the volume to easily fit your gear and to keep all the weight as close to your back as possible. Both the 15 and 30 bags were designed to perfectly accommodate the avy tools required no matter the size of the tour, the only difference between the two is the size of the main compartment for additional items and pack space.

Molded Back Panel
A ergonomic EVA back panel is designed to allow airflow, provide support, and keep you comfortable.
BCA Float System
The Float systems use 2,700psi compressed air, a single-chamber airbag and a potential super-efficient venturi system. It is strategically positioned behind the head and away from the hips and arms for clear peripheral vision. The airbag is re-packable by the user after deployment and the air cylinder is refillable at any K2/BCA certified refill location.
Helmet sling easily deploys from velcro pocket and can be used in standard location or diagonal ski carry location at the upper right corner.
Ice Axe Sheath
Clean and simple ice axe storage with the pick in a protective sheath.
Internal Tool Holder
Large wet storage tool pocket stores avy tools and climbing skins. The long pocket length and full length zip makes for easy in and out of climbing skins without having to fold them twice. Dedicated tool sleeves have heavy-duty tarpaulin bottom caps to protect the tools and the pack. A bottom moisture drain hole doubles as a large ice axe storage to allow the shaft and spike to protrude below the pack and stay clear of the air bag.
Waist Belt Stash Pocket
On both sides of the waist belt the stash pockets hold things you need to get to quickly while on the move: tools, gloves, energy bar or a camera.
Insulated Hydration Sleeve
This insulated sleeve is designed to keep the hydration tube from freezing.
