second nature after a couple of days out. The back panel’s structure is a wire-framed mesh framesheet with ample support for heavy loads while allowing the pack to move with you as you climb. Finally, the tool attachment utilizes the upper compression straps to secure the handle and a pick-pocket system for the heads and picks. A comfortable, thoughtfully designed all-around pack. The redesigned Mutant 38, like other Osprey packs, is an astonishingly comfortable pack. This 38- litre bag carries exceptionally and consistently swallows more gear than seems possible thanks in part to the large, removable lid which features two pockets as well as a built-in mesh helmet holder. Dual Toollock Attachments take care of your ice tools, sidecompression straps stabilize the load, and should you need them, there are even two A-frame ski loops. The framesheet and lid are strippable, and removing the top lid reveals the Mutant’s unique FlapJacket lid: a built-in f lap that covers the spindrift collar’s drawcord opening for lidless weather-protection. Though the hipbelt is not removable, it is designed to f lip backwards and clip out of the way on the side of the pack. A comfortable, spacious pack designed for year-round use.
