Designed for long days and heavy loads, the men's 55-liter Mountain Hardwear PCT pack provides all-day comfort with its breathable trampoline back and an ergonomically efficient 3D pivoting hipbelt.

Features

  • Dual-density shoulder straps are contoured for maximum comfort and include an adjustable, removable sternum strap with integrated whistle
  • 3D spacer mesh trampoline-style back panel keeps the pack body away from your body, for increased cooling, breathability and comfort
  • Internal steel hoop frame and fiberglass T-bar handles heavy loads with ease
  • Hoverbelt hipbelt moves independently from the back panel in all 3 planes, better matching the movement of your hips while you walk, allowing for efficient, comfortable carry
  • Especially over long distances, this increased efficiency translates to less fatigue and soreness at the end of the day
  • Main pack body can be accessed from the top or via the large zippered front panel
  • Internal hanging hydration sleeve has its own shoulder straps and can be removed to use as a stealth summit pack or daybag
  • Floating top lid adjusts upward to accommodate overloads in the main compartment and can be removed completely for lightweight excursions
  • The lid has 2 zippered pockets for optimal gear organization and easy access; a key clip is located inside one of the pockets
  • Front shove-it pocket expands to accommodate gear like camp shoes and extra layers; also incorporates a large, secure zippered pocket for even more organization options
  • Once gear is in place, a side zipper allows access to the depths of the shove-it pocket without first having to loosen the pack's compression straps
  • 2 hipbelt pockets provide storage for on-the-go necessities like sunscreen and energy bars
  • 2 large side-mounted water bottle pockets can each be loaded with a bottle sitting straight up, or angled forward for easier access while moving
  • Ample rain skirt keeps water, snow and dust from entering the main pack body from above and allows the pack to be overfilled
  • Quick-draw loops allow the skirt to go from tightly closed to fully opened in a fraction of a second
  • Includes 2 attachment loops for ice axes or trekking poles; loops and keepers can be tucked into pockets when not in use, helping to avoid snags
  • Internal sleeping bag divider shelf can be dropped out of the way if desired
  • Main pack body and bottle pockets are made of tough 210-denier high-tenacity ripstop recycled nylon, easily fending off brush snags and rock abrasion
  • Bottom of pack is made of 500-denier CORDURA® air-textured nylon yarns for maximum abrasion resitance and durability
  • Hypalon patches add additional durability to high-wear areas
