Mountain Hardwear SummitRocket 40 Backpack - With the SummitRocket 40 Backpack from Mountain Hardwear you've got ultralight materials combining with a versatile design to create a high-performance pack for the expedition alpinist pushing the limits. The SummitRocket 40 features a minimalist, versatile, and highly effective Alpine UL suspension system which includes a removable HardWave framesheet, a removable lightweight hipbelt, and a removable 48 inch x 20 inch pad. Dual density, low profile shoulder straps offer a more comfortable carry while a versatile compression system secures your climbing gear and overloads and can be removed to reduce weight when not needed. Superlight and durable material help set balanced weight that's reliable. The roll-top design of this pack allows for easier access and minimizes weight and clutter. Front and rear grab loops are both clip secure and the horizontal daisy chains on the lower sides of pack offer clip points for gear and quick stash loops for your ice axe, creating versatile tool lashing opportunities. The lumbar is compatible with Alpine and FitLock hipbelts for extra support with heavy loads. You'll be glad you've packed your Mountain Hardwear SummitRocket 40 Backpack as you push to the summit.

    I bought this pack as part of my plan to cut weight out of my camping/climbing/mountaineering gear. I try not to own a bunch of bags and I think this will replace the majority. I replaced the frame sheet with another product meant for sleeping. It's egg carton shaped in design and has reflective material on one side. It should be noted that I didn't try the mountain hardware frame sheet first. I've only carried the pack, fully loaded, about 1k on flat ground. It's very comfortable, but I bet I only had 35lbs inside it. I had it loaded up for 3 days in the mountains for a summit attempt that never went. Some things that I worry about from my initial use are the outside of the bag where you would strap crampons down. You need to take extra care not to punch through the material. That's kind of the name of the game with the lite weight stuff. You need to be extra vigilant that you don't stick something sharp through it. The shoulder straps are perfect. Slim but padded just enough. The waist belt may need more or not. It's just too soon to tell. The size of this bag also makes you really choose what you need and what you don't. If your not committed to that, then don't buy a bag like this. Overall, I love it. Great concept and execution.

    This pack covers all of your needs for alpine fun... and nothing else. The spartan suspension held loads up to 40lbs with aplomb yet never seemed too bulky or cumbersome for true climbing. The included pad can be removed and replaced with a 3/4 Z-lite for a bit better comfort and R-value. I loved having a roll-top for quickly stuffing or removing my puffy and the clean exterior and interior literally prevent you from bringing excess gear. The pack body is pretty burly and water resistant so I'd feel fine never using a cover. From ski-touring to alpine climbing, this pack crushes.
