Part of Mountain Hardwear’s Objective Series (for climbing, mountaineering, and now snow sports), the Huckster is designed for the multi-board, backcountry user who snowboards one day and skis the next. A smaller-capacity version of the Glisse, it’s designed for a closer-to-home load.

The Huckster can carry either a board (between the pack and back suspension panel, secured with a strap) or skis (using either side compression straps for an A-frame carry or the reinforced front panel for a diagonal carry). It features an aluminum-perimeter frame for support. A front pocket organizes your shovel, probe, or skins, and a main pocket stores clothing, snacks, and smaller items in several organizer pockets. An internal hydration pocket exits into an insulated shoulder strap cover, for protection from cold winter temps.


Capacity 1500 cubic inches
Weight 2 lbs. 13 oz.
