When your hike starts at the crack of dawn and has to be finished with the help of headlamps, you want to bring the Mountain Hardwear Scrambler RT 40 Outdry Backpack along for the journey. Weather is unpredictable in the high mountains one minute the sun is shining, the next the skies have turned an ominous shade of charcoal so Mountain Hardwear equipped the Scrambler RT 40 with waterproof OutDry construction and a watertight roll top design to keep you gear bone dry in the face of torrential downpours. HardWave suspension conforms to the curve of your back and distributes weight evenly for mile after mile comfort. A fully padded hip belt and adjustable sternum strap stabilize the pack, and side compression straps help you manage your load. External carry loops hold ice axes or trekking poles, depending on how high you plan on climbing. An easy access hydration sleeve reservoir not included allows quick on the go sips, and deep side pockets hold water bottles so you have a backup supply of liquid.
