First off: The Mutant 38
The Mutant is a clean, lightweight and highly functional pack for all aspects of mountain use.
Using extensive feedback from European Climbers in particular, we've blended proven design methods and new innovative ideas and materials. The development process led us to remove features rather than add them. What remains are features that have proven functionality, durability and ease of use, including: a stowable hip-belt with racking system for quick and easy access to gear, an easy insert/remove bivi pad, and a removable floating lid with spindrift collar.
With a stripped weight of 0.95kg, the Mutant is a highly versatile and lightweight climbing pack. Suitable for year-round rock and alpine climbers looking for a simple lightweight, minimalist design that uses modern tough construction and has useful climbing specific features.
Available July 2008.
