    Details

    The apex of backpacking comforts.

    Pack a week's worth of camping gear into Mountainsmith's Apex 80 Backpack for a much-needed reprieve from city life. Its suspension system features a well-ventilated Anvil Airway back panel made of cushy EVA, a supportive PE framesheet, sturdy aluminum stays, padded shoulder straps with adjustments, and a form-fitting TuningFork waistband for comfort on the approach.

    The Apex is a traditional top loader with a detachable SlingShot lid that doubles as a daypack. There's an internal sleeve and port designed for hydration reservoirs, as well as a zippered bottom compartment for sleeping pads. Mountainsmith designed the waistbelt's pocket for smartphones as large as the Galaxy S6. The Apex also has a front mesh stash pocket for layers, and a side pocket for water bottles.

    Great Features

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This backpack isn't like your father's or grandfather's pack, this is loaded with all the gear features one has come to expect from Mountainsmith. Very well thought out, very well built and last but not least it carries a heavy load with the most comfort of any pack I have put on my back. Excellent pack, sturdy and ready for anything you can throw in it!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Took this pack on my kids first overnight backpacking trip - so I ended up carrying most of their gear. The Apex has great load carrying ability. I really liked the waistbelt and back panel, Mountainsmith really out did themselves here. The Apex also has very well thought out pockets and access panels - easy to unload and pack. The harness adjustment was straight forward to use for my initial adjustment. I just really liked this thoughtfully designed pack and the price was awesome for what I got.
