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.
