A cross between mountaineering, trail running, ski-mountaineering and climbing, this backpack combines really hard-wearing woven Dyneema® fabric to a highly expendable Dyneema® stretch panel on the front. Thanks to this construction, the load stability is optimised.

"This is now my go-to backback when I want to climb fast and light."
More than six prototypes have been field-tested by our Austrian technical advisor Philipp Brugger, in order to develop this specially innovated Millet Trilogy backpack providing added speed in high altitude terrain.
Aged 28, the Austrian alpinist is the epitome of fast & light, adding a fiery streak to the mountaineering discipline as showcased in the media by Kilian Jornet and Ueli Steck.
Thus, he clocked the Eiger’s north face in 10 hours. Followed by speed ascent records (Großglockner, Piz Bernina, Hochferner north face, Zwölferkogel north face); his first (solo) ascents of north and east faces of the Lüsener Fernerkogel, all rounded off with vertical races and ski-mountaineering races. In the space of a few years, he’d stuffed many accomplishments into his (obviously lightweight) backpack.
Committed but sensible and rational, Philipp is also convinced that fast & light is, safety-wise, the best insurance policy around: “In my view it’s the future of mountaineering, because it’s the only way you can be hyper flexible in any situation... The faster you go, the less time you spend in the same zone and so the more you limit the risk.”
It’s a version of mountaineering that matches the competitive and insatiable character that he’s always been. “I love running, climbing, skiing and scaling as many summits and faces as possible during a single excursion. I tell myself I can eat up 5,000 meters of positive elevation in a day, no problem. I like moving forward, not sitting down.”
