The Blue Ice Warthog 40L Pack: Hardcore Minimalism in Action

Scramble stock the Warthog packs as alternatives to their top-rated pack for those inclined to more adventurous scrambling, climbing and mountaineering rather than long distance mountain trekking. The Warthog packs aren't modular like the Predator 30 (and thus are more limited in terms of additional loading) and don't have that pack's versatility but they are lighter, insanely tough and better equipped for fast and light mountaineering.

Update: Scramble have recently developed a new product called the Tower 11L Pack Extender, this makes packs like the Warthog 40 (and other climbing packs) more extensible and thus flexible in terms of their capacity. The Warthog 40 is going through a final kit test this winter (Feb 2019) and Scramble state that it's extremely likely to be their pack of choice "for those who often operate in sub zero temperatures, whose mountain treks regularly morph into something more akin to mountaineering".


Blue Ice's Description:

The Warthog 40L is tough and light like its little brother, the Warthog 28L, but with added volume and features that make it more suitable for longer adventures. Like its smaller sibling, it features a helmet holder, rope carrier and a handy quick-release skirt opening system for easy access to your gear. The lateral compression straps can be used to transport skis and the ice tool holders are perfectly designed for carrying a set of technical tools. The thermo-formed ergonomic back panel and shoulder stabilizer straps are designed to provide maximum comfort when carrying heavier loads, and the front haul loop is very handy for hanging the pack at belays. The Warthog 40L is incredibly durable and its compact design ensures maximum freedom of movement when you’re climbing. It is the perfect companion for all of your most demanding alpine adventures.

A quick note on stated price (RRP)

The stated Blue Ice price for the Warthog 40L is currently 130€ (~£120). However, the RRP for UK distribution is £130 (GBP, i.e. 1:1 against the Euro). We use the European RRP converted to GBP, so our % reduction might be lower than some UK stores but our price might be more competitive too. Just something to be aware of.

A Brief but Useful Overview

Typical Reviews (Translated):

  • Brilliant 40L Sack - My third Blue Ice pack and absolutely love it - minimalist and comfortable. Quality material and construction, slim built and alpinesque; a joy to wear and use. Love the helmet carriage system, the simplicity (no excess required) and the feel of quality. Highly recommend this model and Blue Ice as a brand.

  • Very basic, very comfortable too - Very basic, very comfortable to walk with normal climbing weight despite very minimalistic hip belt, fabric seems bombproof only time will tell. The whole closure system is excellent, must have made improvements to helmet holder as it fastens very easily even with winter gloves on. Climbs fantastic!
