Product Highlights

Equipped with durability and load-hauling (up to 45 lbs) capability, the Mountainsmith Ghost 50 internal frame backpack offers premium performance for deep in the backcountry and the top of the mountain. An adjustable suspension and integrated organizational features make the Ghost 50 extremely versatile.

The Ghost 50 utilizes an innovative suspension system that provides anatomical support and allows freedom of movement for on-trail hauling and off-trail scrambling. A spring steel frame and molded PE framesheet offer excellent load support and a suspended Breezeway mesh backpanel conforms to the contours of your back while allowing airflow to combat heat build-up. A pivoting, wrap-around design in the adjustable dual-density waistbelt shifts weight into the lumbar region for a stable, evenly distributed load. Integrated load-lifter straps and an adjustable sternum strap further enhance fit.

The panel loading design of the Ghost 50 allows convenient access to dual compartments that provide a combined storage capacity of 3175 cubic inches. Together, the two compartments allow for organization of gear and clothes. A large zippered front pocket provides additional storage. Side compression straps with quick release hardware allow you to cinch down your load or lash other gear to the exterior of the pack.

Other features found on the Ghost 50 include ice axe and trekking pole loops, gear attachment loops, side mesh water bottle pockets and an integrated haul handle. A lined internal sleeve, built-in exit ports and an integrated sternum strap bite valve catch combine to make the Ghost 50 hydration system (sold separately) compatible.

The Mountainsmith Ghost 50 is an adjustable size pack that offers optimal fit for torsos ranging from 17" to 20" in length.
