The Blue Ice Warthog 28L Pack: Hardcore Minimalism in Action

Scramble stock the Warthog packs as alternatives to their top-rated modular trekking pack for those inclined to more adventurous scrambling, climbing and mountaineering rather than long distance mountain trekking. The Blue Ice Warthog packs were the catalyst for Scramble to create their Tower pack extenders which pair well with both Blue Ice Warthogs (28 and 40).

Blue Ice's Description:

The Warthog 28L is Blue Ice's toughest, most streamlined backpack. Designed by alpine guides and built for extremely intensive use, it features just the accessories you need and nothing more. The helmet holder, rope carrier and top-loading design optimize carrying capacity during the approach. The top lid features a separate pocket to keep your wallet and keys safe when you rummage for an energy bar or sunglasses at the belay. The thermo-formed ergonomic back panel and shoulder stabilizer straps are designed to provide maximum comfort, even when climbing. The low-profile removable hip belt won’t interfere with your harness and the pack’s compact design ensures maximum freedom of movement when you’re climbing, while remaining convenient with its shoulder webbing integrated gear loops. The Warthog 28L holds up to the harshest abuse and climbs like a champ, making it the ideal pack for fast and light one-day ascents and short technical climbs.

A Brief but Useful Overview

Typical Reviews (Translated):

  • My Favourite! --  My favourite pack in the blue ice series at this point!! Its light, it looks sweet and has all I need for day trips, climbing days, and alpine challenges.

  • Space miracle -- I'm often surprised by how much fits into this robust backback. Whether climbing, guiding or travelling, this one is always with me.

  • Every day backpack --  I use this very durable backpack for all the summer ascent of no more then 2 days. It's very comfortable on the back, clean and nice. Excellent net on the top for the helmet to save space inside.

  • Allrounder -- This one is my most used backpack. No matter if winter or summer, if I travel around the world, this one is with me. I hauled it once for more than 500 meters over a steep wall of limestone in Morocco and still use it, without any damage. Light and robust perfection!
