New for 2014! The lightweight and innovative Mountainsmith Mystic 65 internal frame backpack offers 3966 cubic inches of storage space. Load-hauling capability and a robust feature set make the Mystic 65 an ideal option for multi-day adventures.
Utilizing Mountainsmith’s Breezeway adjustable suspension, the Mystic 65 is designed to comfortably haul heavy loads of up to 55 pounds by efficiently distributing weight to the hips and lumbar region, providing better load control and increasing flexibility. A contoured PE framesheet with spring steel hoop offers strong support, while the off-the-back sling backpanel with Diamond Airmesh foam allows air to circulate, keeping your back cool and dry while in the backcountry. Fit is adjustable to accommodate torsos ranging from 17"-22" in length. The Iliac Crest Shelf (ICS) waistbelt features an exaggerated curve that better supports weight by offering the ability to carry more over the hips and iliac crest bone for improved comfort. Perforated, adjustable shoulder straps, a Lumbar Control Point pad, load-lifter straps and an adjustable sternum strap further enhance fit and comfort. Side and bottom compression straps allow you to cinch down your load for better stability and maneuverability.
The large top-accessed packbag of the Mystic 65 offers a capacity of up to 4272 cubic inches (70 liters) when the storm collar is expanded. The Slingshot lid is entirely detachable for use as a lumbar pack or shoulder sling. A vertical zipper on the front of the Mystic 65 enables you to quickly put hands on contents without having to open the top lid. A separate sleeping bag compartment can be accessed through a zipper on the lower front of the packbag; this compartment is separated from the main packbag by an internal divider that can be unzipped to convert the interior of the Mystic 65 to a single, oversized compartment.
Other features on the Mystic 65 include trekking pole mounts, ice axe loops and daisy chain gear attachment points. External stretch mesh pockets safely stow water bottles and provide convenient on-the-go access.
