- Mountain Gear

Heading out on a weekend of hiking? Carry your gear in the Mountain Hardwear Harrier Backpack and take advantage of the extremely comfortable Exodus Motive suspension system. This Mountain Hardwear-exclusive suspension system uses Fit-Lock shoulder straps and hip belts that mold to your body without heat shaping. Lightweight Scandium tubing connects the suspension to the pack and creates flow-through ventilation matched only by external-frame packs. Pack your load in the Harrier backpack, and hit the trails for a weekend of hiking. The hydration-compatible Harrier keeps the water flowing, and the streamline design allows for snag-free hiking when you're off the beaten path.


The efficient Mountain Hardwear Harrier Backpack uses the Motive frame and is a lightweight pack designed for compact loads and nimble cross country travel. Patent-pending Fit-Lock harness and waist belt conform to the body shape of the user and lock into place, distributing load evenly over the entire frame and eliminating painful pressure points. The result: Less fatigue and a more comfortable carry.
