The ALPS Mountaineering Tour boasts a roll top design which allows the pack volume to easily expand from 35L to 45L. Its lightweight 200D nylon double ripstop fabrics with 3D mesh suspension and aluminum stay provide a comfortable fit and carry. If you prefer no waist belt on a particular outing, the waist belt can quickly and easily be removed. The large main compartment, hip belt pockets and zippered lid pocket give the Peak 45 a total of 2,135 to 2,746 cubic inches of storage. With the Tour there is no need to dig out all the contents of your pack to get to the bottom; two strategically-placed side zippers provide additional access to the main compartment. A front zipper pocket, stretch side pockets, side and bottom compression straps, and trekking pole loops provide additional gear storage and lashing points. A hydration port with pocket and built-in rain cover are both included making the Tour a truly versatile pack.

Since our inception in 1993 by outdoor gear designer and company founder Dennis Brune, ALPS has become an innovation and customer satisfaction leader. Founder Brune enjoyed a successful career beginning in 1979 with the technical mountaineering manufacturer Kelty. He moved from product development to sales and marketing, then to management.
Brune had a vision of an outdoor company that would deliver high-quality performance gear priced within a comfortable reach for the everyday outdoorsman and woman. In essence, premium outdoor products whose performance exceeded the expectations of their price points. This combined with a focused attention on customer service has been a winning combination.
Dennis and his wife, LaRayne, wanted to share the passion for the outdoors with their three children. The time spent outdoors are their most cherished memories, and continue to be the stories told when they're together. Brian, Adam and Sarah Kristin have their roles in the company today. The family business was redefined as each child's spouses joined the ALPS team throughout the years. The pride of passing on a passion to your children is an amazing feeling, but to pass along a passion through your children to your grandchildren is something to treasure.
ALPS headquarters was built out of and around the Brune home. In 2015, they officially out-grew their Lyon campus and purchased a 100,000 sq. ft. building in the city limits of New Haven, where the bulk of their warehousing staff and products are now located.
