Mountain Hardwear Summitrocket 40 Climbing Pack

Giving new meaning to the term ultra-light backpacks, the Mountain Hardwear Summitrocket 40 Climbing Pack delivers versatile alpine performance in a lightweight package. To paraphrase Antoine de Saint-Exupery, perfection comes not when there's nothing left to add, but when there's nothing left to take away, and the Mountain Hardwear design team has headed Antoine's advice well. Stripped to the bare necessities, the Summitrocket 40 remains a serious climber's pack with the ability to carry ice axes and climbing gear. It is well suited to short multi-day forays into the mountains for anyone looking to travel as light as possible. Using the latest in lightweight ripstop materials and Dyneema fabric, the pack weighs well below two pounds. A traditional top-loading pack, the Summitrocket eliminates the fold-over lid in favor of a roll-top design, and while the suspension is minimal in design, the dual-density foam keeps it comfortable. Discover your full potential with the Mountain Hardwear Summitrocket 40 climbing pack.
