You have a lot of gear to haul up the mountain, and the beefy Mountain Hardwear BMG 105 Backpack prevents your backbone from buckling on the third morning of your trek. For that, you can thank the Alpine Suspension and smart compression straps that transfer your heavy load from your shoulders to your hips and allow you to carry this extendable, guide-worthy pack over countless ridge lines. Two hollow stays add the structure you need to carry 70-pound loads. and they can be removed for lighter alpine quests. The removable HardWave framesheet keeps the pack flat on your back for a comfortable and predictable carry over goat paths and crevasse crossings. Meanwhile, a large, stowable front strap condenses the main compartment when you're carrying a smaller load during those less gear-intensive missions. Mountain Hardwear gave the pack its low-bulk FitLock waist belt to redistribute the majority of the load to your legs. The removable top lid features a rope strap for alpine climbing trips and utilizes glove-friendly compression straps to shrink the load on the go. The FlapTop design means that the pack remains weather-resistant with or without the top lid attached. A front daisy chain, sleeping pad straps, and ice axe straps provide a variety of external carry options


Designed for professional guides to comfortably haul heavy loads on long-trek peaks like Denali and Aconcagua. Flexible design and compression system ensures this pack can grow-or shrink-according to your needs. OutDry construction bonds a durable waterproof membrane to the main compartment so that your gear stays safe and dry in even the wettest conditions.
