Light, strong, and stoic, Osprey's Mutant 28 is a perfect partner on your next high alpine adventure.
This bucket-style top-loading pack has a featherweight aluminum suspension system that handles loads up to 40 pounds. The mesh Airscape backpanel provides ventilation and all-day carrying comfort.
When the summit is in sight and every ounce counts, shed weight by removing the pack's suspension, compression straps, and the helmet carry sling.
Other alpine-specific features include A-frame ski carry loops, dual ToolLocks with bungee tool tie-offs, and front panel webbing loops for crampon attachment. It also has an interior mesh slash pocket to keep small items organized. All zipper pulls and buckles are glove-friendly to keep your hands protected while grabbing for gear in frosty temps. And the hipbelt has built-in gear loops so you can to keep a few pieces handy to build a quick belay anchor and safely bring your partner up the final Class 4 scramble to the summit.
