Perfect for weekend-long or multi-day adventures, the versatile Mountainsmith Lariat 65 internal frame backpack offers 4025 cubic inches of storage space. Equipped with a detachable 8-liter summit pack and numerous gear attachment points, the pack is built for backcountry adventure.
Utilizing a PE framesheet and X-shaped aluminum support stays and a fully adjustable suspension, the Lariat 65 is designed to comfortably haul heavy loads by efficiently distributing weight, providing better load control, and increasing flexibility. A channeled backpanel padded with perforated foam allows air to circulate, keeping your back cool and dry while in the backcountry. Fit is adjustable to accommodate torsos ranging from 16"-21" in length. A dual density waistbelt supports weight and provides cushioning while conforming to the contours of your hips. Adjustable shoulder straps, load-lifter straps, and an adjustable sternum strap further enhance fit and comfort. Side compression straps allow you to cinch down your load for better stability and maneuverability.

The standard capacity of the Lariat 65 is 3540 cubic inches but the roll-top lid expands to provide a full 4025 cubic inches of storage. A huge U-shaped zipper throws the front of the pack wide open, enabling you to quickly put hands on contents without having to completely unload the packbag. A large front pocket stores additional gear and detaches entirely for use as a streamlined 8l summit pack or day pack complete with its own shoulder straps and hydration sleeve.
Other features on the Lariat 65 include trekking pole attachments, ice axe loops, side stretch mesh pockets, a smartphone-compatible waistbelt pockets, and various gear attachment points. An internal lined pocket and drinking tube exit port make the pack hydration system (not included) compatible.
