Alto Crash Pad by Petzl
Petzl's new Alto Crash Pad sits at the middle, in size, of its new line. All the features of Petzl's new crashpads will simultaneously have you wondering why it didn't make crashpads earlier, and how it managed to pack in so many features and nail it so well on the first attempt.

Petzl created an innovative system where the piece that zips around, when unzipped, actually folds back to cover the straps themselves, keeping them, and you, from getting dirty. Because Petzl designed this so well to be used as a backpack, it was clear that people were going to be carrying more weight in these than they had with previous crashpads. Petzl decided to accommodate this with wide, burly backpack straps that are comfortable, no matter how heavy a load you decide to carry.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
