Description

Keep it light, even if your expedition is in some heavy terrain.

Don't make the mistake of trying to slog through your next adventure with a bulky, heavy, or inadequate pack—it'll make you miserable before you can whine "I want to go home!" Black Diamond designed the top-loading Mission 75 Backpack to be a lightweight expedition-sized hauler for alpine assaults and extended backcountry trips so hauling those massive loads at altitude won't be such a painful experience. The Mission's reActiv XP suspension uses a floating hip belt and fixed shoulder straps to provide the ideal combination of flexibility and support, allowing you to cover more ground with less stress, which might seem wimpy but is essential when you're out for a long time and little niggles start to add up and make you miserable.

A low-fat, streamlined design keeps the Mission light but, as you'd expect from Black Diamond, it has vertical DNA and it doesn't skimp on the necessary features. It comes replete with a PickPocket ice tool carrying system, crampon pouch, and three-point haul system so you can take your gear with you when steep trekking gets vertical during the final push. It's hydration-compatible so you don't end up dessicated like the arid regions you're moving through, and the padded hip-belt is removable. You can also remove the top of the pack and stow your rope in the tuck-away strap if you're looking to cut weight but keep your essential gear close by.

Great Pack

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Used on week-long mountaineering course in Wrangell St. E.,Bomber Traverse AK, Mt. Rainier and Mt. Baker plus some short backpacking trips. Carries 40-60 lbs well but the hip belt is not as well-padded as some other packs. Annoyances: 1) The pack is tall and skinny and stands well above my head when fully loaded. This tends to bump your climbing helmet and is not fun.2) only few months of use and the bottom of the pack is wearing through. I don't think it'll last as long as my older BD packs. 3) If you are venturing into avvy terrain you will need to stow the shovel under the lid, in pack or awkwardly strapped to the outside. Good luck getting the shovel to NOT tear the pack or your gear inside the pack. 4) Gear loops are not rigid enough to clip/unclip gear with gloved hands- pain!! Things I love: 1) lightweight, 2) converts to summit pack quickly and easily, 3) VERY versatile, 4) Love the crampon straps and ice tool loops on the back. 5) Easy to strap pickets, probe and tent poles to the outside for easy access. 6) Carries well. I'm 5'6" and the medium works for me. BTW the "crampon pouch" is just 2 straps that hold the crampons. They work fine tho.

Does it All

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I gifted my friend this pack to use while working in Denali over the summer. Overall pretty impressive. Here's some feedback he had on it! -
"I've had this pack for a few weeks now, taken it on several back country trips in the Denali Wilderness, and also used it as a crag pack a few times. Over all I'm impressed with how well it carries big loads while maintaining a slim profile. I've used the included straps to attach my backpacker guitar to the back with relative ease, and still wasn't getting snagged too often while bush whacking through dense willow. It took some getting used to just having the one big hole to dump everything in, but that's pretty standard with a stripped down mountain pack like this and the lid holds a ridiculous amount of stuff so it's not like you can't compartmentalize a little. The side zip works well if the pack is full, can be hard to get at the zipper if you've got it cinched down with less than ~60 liters of gear in there. First impressions of the pack have been awesome, we'll see how it handles abuse."

Good Winter Summit Pack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

No reviews out there on the pack except for ones on the BD website. I went ahead and bought the pack based on my previous experience with BD packs.

Pros: This pack is very lightweight, lean and minimalist. I find myself grabbing for this pack during the winter. You can purchase a crampon attachment and attach it nicely. The ice axe pouch is nice touch and I find myself using the velcro straps for my poles as well. I purchased the bag knowing it to be a minimalist bag. There are no pockets on the outside. I find myself playing around less with my pack than others. Simple to get on and off. Side zip covers the entirety of the side of the bag. No issues.

Cons: Pack doesn't seem to fit me quite right in the shoulders/neck. It's not a length issue but rather a strap issue. I feel like the straps attach a little too narrow at the top of the pack. So instead of having them sit 2 inches out from you neck they are only about 1 inch. I do think the waist belt could be a little larger as well.
