Mountainsmith Frostfire

rated 5.0 of 5 stars

The Frostfire has been discontinued. If you're looking for something new, check out the best weekend packs for 2024.

I only paid $150 because I bought it used, a new one will cost about 260. This is one of the best packs ever made. It has an excellent design that makes the pack extremly comfortable. There is a top pouch that will detach for a lumbar pack, mine doesn't because it is the older model. A bungee in the front is very usefull, it keeps gear secured and can also keep a jacket or fleece handy. Two large water bottle pouches on the sides will hold any size bottle known to man. There is a half moon zipper at the bottom of the pack so you can get your sleeping bag out easily.

I would recommend this bag to everyone, it is bombproof and has every feature that is needed and at a decent price. Check out my other reviews on the mountainsmith backcountry express, and
the tour bag, both are great for day hikes, mountain biking and for messing around town.

Mountainsmith sticks with the basics on this pack. I used to carry a Mountainsmith Crestone II and fell in love with the brand. I understand why "they" (Mountainsmith) are called the best fitting packs. Held well during expeditions and the trampoline pocket came in handy. Highly recommended!
