A vintage  7000 cu in. Alpine Phantom backpack from 1979 in mint condition and used on 3 trips only. The bag can be removed from the external frame for technical climbing or lighter loads. The waist suspension system is made of titanium and the aluminum  frame has an articulating mechanical hinge which separates the upper and lower portion of the pack frame. It flexes as the human spine does.   In 1978 Jim Wickmire became  the first American to


reach the summit of K2 with an Alpine Phantom pack. The pack comes with a custom fabricated rain cover as well as a custom fitted  PVC  locking travel bag used to conceal  and protect the pack on airplane,boat, or  rail travel. The pack and rain cover are a rust color and the travel bag is high visibility yellow. This is a very unique large pack that was produced for only a few years, and is in top condition, with only a few sold  by Jansport. It comes with the original  1979 Jansport  color catalogue  and fully illustrates the Alpine Phantom backpack. For sale at $500.00 (FIRM) complete plus shipping for all the above. You will not be disappointed wit
h this purchase. Email JIM at
