A durable, feature-rich day pack or climbing pack, the versatile Mountainsmith Phantom 40 has a breathable, load-hauling (up to 35 lbs) suspension system and convenient panel-loading organizational features.
The Phantom 40 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. Ensuring an appropriate fit for users of varying proportions, the Ghost 50 is available in two sizes. The 2560 cubic inch capacity Small/Medium fits torso lengths ranging from 15"-18" and the Medium/Large (2750 cu in) size accommodates 18"-21" torsos. 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.
A large horseshoe-shaped zipper provides easy access to the main panel-loading compartment of the Phantom 40. A large zippered front pocket provides additional enclosed storage and is separated from the main compartment to provide stash space behind it for extra layers and other gear. 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 Phantom 40 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 Phantom 40 hydration system (sold separately) compatible.
The Mountainsmith Phantom 40 internal frame pack is available in your choice of sizes.
