Light and versatile – but tough as nails. When you’re headed up into colder conditions, you need a pack that works right with you – whether you’re hiking through demanding terrain, climbing up rockface, or even skiing along snow-covered trails. Osprey’s Mutant 38 proves to be just as strategic and flexible, all the way from the suspension system to the removable features for reducing weight. Take those skis and ice axes along, attach a rope and helmet to the exterior, and always stay hydrated. However you see your journey unfolding, it’s there with you every step to the peak and back.
