Mountainsmith’s Ivy (women’s) and Needle (men’s) classic alpine packs are designed to carry skis, snowboards, snowshoes, climbing gear, and backcountry tools with comfort, bombproof reliability, and minimalist design. The packs’ multi-use compression system can carry snowboards and snowshoes (vertically) and skis (diagonally or with an A-frame carry).
The Ivy and Needle both feature gear attachment points on the front side, tool attachment points, and dual ice ax loops that tuck away. The detachable lid converts to a lumbar pack and there’s a gear loop inside the lid and dual-collared storm shield with draw cord closure. Hydration-compatible with a single exit port, the Ivy and Needle have hydration sleeves and a bite-valve catch on their sternum straps.

The Juniper 55 is a true workhorse in the All-Terrain line, sized for week-long backpacking trips with a detachable daypack for shorter excursions and summit pushes.

The innovative ICS Cup (Illiac Crest Shelf) hipbelt transfers and locks the pack load onto the hips, the Delta Wing Compression system pull the load into the lumbar region and focuses on the Lumbar Control Point pad on the lower backpanel to fully secure the pack load against the user's major weight bearing point, the lumbar/sacrum region. All this while the Anvil Airway backpanel keeps you cool on the longest trail day.
