The Mountain Hardwear SummitRocket 20 VestPack provides easy access to gear, fits like a vest to move with you, and remains balanced during fast-paced backcountry activities.
The Mountain Hardwear SummitRocket 20 VestPack provides easy access to essential gear, fits like a vest so it moves with you, and keeps the center of gravity balanced during fast-paced summit attempts, alpine climbing or adventure races.
A stiffened back panel and On-The-Fly compression system, combined with low-profile, wide and lightly padded shoulder straps, create a versatile summit pack with excellent carrying capabilities and remarkably stable load control. Mountain Hardwear’s unique, On-The-Fly compression system lets the wearer adjust the load stability while wearing the pack to help reduce sway and keep a balanced center of gravity while moving fast on rough terrain or off trail. This adjustment can be done without stopping and doesn’t inhibit motion while scrambling or climbing. This versatile compression system also secures gear to the outside of the pack, but can be removed to reduce weight on truly light and fast trips. Multiple external lash points for tools, including ice axe cradles and mini daisy chains, make access to equipment simple and fast.
The SummitRocket 20 VestPack offers a large main compartment with top loading access and four easily accessible pockets of varying sizes on the shoulder straps to keep necessary items close at hand.
