News from Osprey:
Osprey is unveiling two ranges of lightweight climbing and mountaineering packs in early 2008 – the
Variant and Mutant. Designed through extensive testing and feedback from professional climbers,
Osprey's new climbing packs can be stripped down for feather light climbing.

First off: The Mutant 38
The Mutant is a clean, lightweight and highly functional pack for all aspects of mountain
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.
