The rugged Mountainsmith Youth Pursuit 50 internal frame backpack offers 3050 cubic inches of storage space, load-carrying capability, and convenient organizational features for young adventurers.
Delivering adult-sized performance in scaled-down dimensions, the pack utilizes a PE framesheet, X-shaped aluminum support stays, and a horizontal stabilizer bar to comfortably carry heavy loads by efficiently distributing weight to the contoured, padded waistbelt. The fully adjustable suspension system comfortably fits torso lengths ranging from 13”-17” which also makes the pack a great option for adults with shorter torso lengths.. A channeled backpanel padded with perforated foam allows air to circulate, keeping your back cool and dry while in the backcountry. Load lifter straps and an adjustable sternum strap further enhance fit and comfort.
The top-loading pack offers a standard capacity of 2745 cubic inches and an integrated spindrift collars expands usable capacity to a full 3050 cubic inches. The height of the Youth Pursuit’s top lid can be adjusted to accommodate the expanded collar. A separate sleeping bag compartment can be accessed through a zipper on the 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 Youth Pursuit to a single, oversized compartment. Large zippered side pockets serve as additional gear storage options and a front bungee system keeps layers close at hand.
Other features include trekking pole mounts, ice axe loops, a safety whistle on the sternum strap, and daisy chain gear attachment points. An internal lined pocket and drinking tube exit port makes the pack hydration system (not included) compatible. Side mesh pockets safely stow water bottles and provide convenient on-the-go access.
