The versatile Mountainsmith Mayhem 30 pack has streamlined storage (1770 cubic inches), panel-loading access, and a lightweight, but supportive suspension. This combination makes it suitable for day hiking or for use as an overnight travel pack.
Ensuring load-hauling performance, the pack has sturdy suspension features found usually only on larger capacity backpacks. A lightweight stabilizing framesheet with a wireframe works with a channeled EVA backpanel to deliver load support, balance, and breathability. Adjustable shoulder straps, load-lifter straps, and an adjustable sternum strap further enhance fit and comfort. Side compression straps cinch down to keep contents secure.
A large zippered top entry peels forward to provide broad access to the interior of the packbag. A large front stretch pocket keeps layers and other gear at the ready. A zippered side pocket safely stows essentials. Other features include trekking pole loops, daisy chain attachment points, a zippered top lid pocket, mesh side pockets, and stretch waistbelt pockets. An internal lined sleeve and tube exit port make the pack hydration system compatible (hydration system not included).
