With its ground-breaking suspension system, water-resistant "all season" construction and access-friendly features, the Black Diamond Mercury 75 internal frame backpack is ready-made for multi-day backpacking trips.
Combining multiple design technologies, the extremely innovative Black Diamond ergoACTIV XP suspension system provides a full range of motion while ensuring stable load support. A contoured 6061 aluminum frame with a load-stabilizing center stay maintains balance while transferring weight to the ergoACTIV hipbelt.
To ensure a customized fit, the pack is available in Medium (fits torsos ranging from 17.5"-20.5" in length) and Large (19.5"-23.5") size options. Employing a unique ball-joint attachment, the hipbelt allows unrestricted movement in any direction and far surpasses the performance of traditional hipbelts. Further enhancing performance, innovative shoulder straps are connected via an integrated low-friction cable that allows them to mirror your every move while maintaining a balanced load. A sliding sternum strap and load-lifter straps also help to improve fit. A padded backpanel and soft, breathable mesh fabrics on the shoulder straps and hipbelt promote breathability while cushioning the Mercury 75 against your back.
A pocketed lid protects the Mercury 75's sizeable (4577 cubic inches on the Medium and 4699 cubic inches on the Large) top-loading packbag and its height can be adjusted to accommodate loads of varying sizes. A large U-shaped zipper also grants front passage to the interior of the pack letting you quickly put hands on specific gear. An interior compartment divider between the top and bottom of the packbag aids in organization. A large zippered front pocket is perfect for stashing gear and stretch side pockets and hipbelt pockets provide further storage options. Waterproof taping on the top and bottom of the Mercury 75 combine with waterproof zippers to make the pack highly weather-resistant.
Other features found on the Mercury 75 include integrated trekking pole/ice axe loops that retract when not needed to maintain a clean profile. A lined internal sleeve and drinking tube exit ports make the pack hydration system (not included) compatible.
