Bag a peak or embark on a fast and light overnight tour with the Mountain Hardwear Dihedral Backpack. Simple and functional, this pack takes to crags, trails, and skin tracks with skill. For climbing convenience, Mountain Hardwear gave this pack an under-lid rope strap, nylon daisy chains for gear clipping, and a durable HardWear tarp front panel that resists damage from crampons and rocks. Ski straps lash your planks vertically for a quick set of yo-yo runs, and the new buckle design is operable with gloves. For quick day hikes, remove the framesheet, top lid, and hip-belt, and shave more than a pound off the Dihedral Pack.
