Lightweight, durable, and versatile, the Mountainsmith Scream 55 pack offers backcountry-ready organizational and performance features in a clean, minimalist-minded profile that speaks directly to seasoned, experienced adventurers.
Ensuring load-hauling performance, a removable PE framesheet works in tandem with 1/2" aluminum support stay. Dual-density padding on the backpanel, shoulder straps, and contoured waistbelt aid in load stabilization and effectively transfer weight to your hips. A channeled design in the backpanel offers ventilation and allows warm to escape so you remain cool and comfortable. Adjustable shoulder straps, load-lifter straps, and an adjustable sternum strap further allow you to dial in fit for the most comfortable carry. Note that the pack best fits 17"-21" torso lengths. Overall durability is provided by the 210D Robic HT nylon material. This fabric has an impressive strength-to-weight ratio that allows the pack to comfortably carry up to 45 pounds while weighing in at just 2 pounds, 13 ounces!
The pack incorporates a number of convenient access features. A roll-top lid saves weight and provides wide open access to the main packbag. The large compartment has a 3051 cubic inch standard capacity but can expand to accommodate an additional 400+ cubic inches of gear. Twin vertical pockets on the front of the pack swallow up gear and layers, keeping them at the ready. A U-shaped zipper allows you to peel back the face of the pack to gain quick access to the interior of the main compartment. Side mesh pockets are perfect for water bottles or other gear.
Other features include compression straps, a safety whistle integrated into the sternum strap buckle, daisy chain attachment points, a tool/trekking pole loop, and zippered waistbelt pockets. An internal lined sleeve and tube exit port make the pack hydration system compatible (system not included).
