Guide Pick™ We’ve spent a lifetime in the mountains. When it comes to gear we don’t settle for anything less than the best. Using the collective knowledge of the RMI Guide Team we identify and direct you to best in class mountain gear and apparel.
The extensive research and real-world expedition testing behind the development of the Denali 100 make it not only the best technical big-mountain pack we have ever made, but quite possibly the best anyone has ever seen. By combining guide-tested essential features with the latest technology and materials, the Denali becomes lighter, stronger, and more versatile, while remaining balanced and comfortable under heavy gear loads over long distances and in technical terrain. Fusion Flex Pro suspension, strippable features, puncture- and abrasion-resistant winter construction, and alpine-ready components are just some of the elements behind the outstanding performance of this uncompromised alpine pack.read less

Your correct frame size is found by measuring your torso from the seventh vertebra (the big bump where the shoulder slope meets the neck) down the spine to the point in the small of your back which is horizontally level with the top of your hip bones (iliac crest). To find the iliac crest, use your fingers to trace the hip bone upwards until you can feel the point where the top edge of your hip bones curve inwards, on the side of your hip, creating something of a shelf. Holding your finger on the seventh vertebra, measure down your back to the point in the small of your back level with your iliac crest. The measurement is most easily obtained using a string or a cloth tape and help from a friend. This is your torso length, and using it, you can now select the correct frame size.
I used this for Mt. Whitney CA. It was comfortable hauling big loads. Easy to load and find gear due to it's simple design, nothing you don't really need. It's a bit on the heavy side, but you don't buy a bag named Denali if you want a light bag. Well made and should last a long time.
Use Situation: Hiking/Backpacking in Fall and Winter.
