For year-round missions.

Black Diamond's Mission 55 Backpack readies you for any alpine adventure, whether it's a summer sending trip or a winter ice climb. With swiveling SwingArm shoulder straps and a rotating ReActive hip belt, the Mission's suspension system allows easy mobility for more comfort on long approaches. The ounce-conscious alipinist can also remove the sturdy framesheet, top lid, hip belt, and fixed webbing belt to strip weight.

The Mission is a traditional top-loader with a drawcord skirt that protects your gear from wet weather. There's a sleeve behind the back panel for a hydration reservoir, and Black Diamond adds a tuck-away rope strap for extra convenience while climbing. Pick Pockets secure your ice axes, the front pouch protects the bag from crampons, and the zippered top pocket is perfect for valuables.
