Eco-responsible and Technical
Co-designed by ARVA and Picture Organic Clothing, the new CALGARY 26 represents our combined expertise in making technical eco-friendly products
We used recycled polyester fabric without sacrificing performance to create an incredible, technical, fully-featured freeride backpack. The roll-top opening closes two different ways and includes an extension for 4L of extra space. This pack’s updated design will not go unnoticed.
Freeride enthusiasts will really like the form-fitting waist belt that makes for an incredibly stable pack on even the toughest descents. For less demanding endeavors, you can remove the waist belt for less bulk. Capable of carrying the widest skis, a snowboard, or an ice axe, this pack is the ideal companion for riding the perfect line. Your snow-safety gear is easily accessible in a large, dedicated pocket located on the front of the pack.

How is recycled polyester different from virgin polyester?Since the recycling process regenerates the fiber at the molecular level, there is absolutely no difference between recycled polyester and virgin polyester. While both are identical in terms of performance and durability, recycled polyester makes much less of an impact on the environment.
Why is recycled polyester better?1. Recycled polyester does not require additional oil resources, which reduces our overall carbon footprint by reducing demand for extracting petroleum.
2. Producing recycled polyester generates four times less CO2 emissions that when making virgin polyester.
3. Recycling plastic offers the opportunity to reuse resources instead of throwing them away.
Removable waist beltWe believe that an ergonomic waist belt is essential for maximum support on any freeride backcountry or sidecountry outing. In addition to providing comfort and stability, it reduces the load on your back and shoulders. Whenever you head on an outing where carrying a lighter pack is more important than maximum support, remove the waist belt in just a few seconds to reduce weight and bulk.
Dedicated snow-safety equipment pocketSince we know just how vital it is to be quick and efficient in rescue situations, we placed a dedicated pocket on the front of the pack for quick access to your shovel and probe.
Thermoformed back panelWith a design inspired by the Picture Organic Clothing logo, the thermoformed form-fitting back panel provides enhanced comfort for your back.
H20 hydration-tube sleeveThe shoulder strap is equipped with a streamlined zippered sleeve to protect your hydration tube as well as keep it out of your way. It also serves to protect the tube from frigid temperatures and the elements.
Daisy-ChainDaisy chains are extremely useful and versatile, allowing you to strap a wide variety of gear to your pack depending on the outing and your immediate need.
