Cobra 65

The North Face


This 65-liter Summit Series™ technical pack is burly, light, durable and has been built for long expeditions and approaches.

The pack is full of specific mountaineering features, from the intuitive ice tool and crampon storage, to the load-hauling aluminum frame and sports a streamlined aesthetic with reduced straps and a quick-access closure system for ropes.

The fabric is semitranslucent (so you can see your gear more easily from the outside of the pack) and comprises a combination of recycled nylon and super-durable, Spectra® ripstop, a tremendously strong fiber with a high tensile strength that’s 15 times stronger than steel by weight. Spectra® is also super abrasion resistant to resist tearing.
