Description

Your warm-weather hiking companion.

The air may be muggy and warm, but thanks to the Breezway back panel on the Mountainsmith Phantom 40 Backpack, your pack won't be trapping heat and sweat against your back. Mountainsmith's Breezeway suspension features a sling-back suspension panel that allows air to circulate against your spine. Air-flow shoulder straps not only allow for additional ventilation, but they offer zonal load dispersion padding for maximum comfort.
  • Advanced reverse-canted, pivoting hip-belt transfers 70% of weighted load to hips and lumbar region, relieving stress on your shoulders and back
  • PE frame hip-belt slider lets you adjust the position both horizontally and vertically
  • Contoured PE framesheet offers increased load support
  • Side mesh hip-belt stash pockets put a snack and your digital camera in easy reach
  • Elastic sternum strap distributes pack weight and includes bite valve holder
  • Internal hydration bladder sleeve includes anti-sag hydration bladder harness (reservoir not included)
  • Zippered front panel stash pockets organize your Ten Essentials
  • Trekking pole mounts and ice axe & tool loop accommodate your gear
  • Side panel accessory pockets hold your water bottles
  • Comfortably carries up to 35 pounds

Is the frame removable?

Is the frame removable?

Responded on

Hey Joaquin,

The frame is fixed. The Breezeway suspension system would fail without the opposing support of the frame.

Great Medium sized pack

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

I haven't used this to many times yet but what i have seen so far is impressive. Carries weight well and I like the gear loops. Good for a night or 2 depending on how you pack.

Is Waist-Belt removable?

Is Waist-Belt removable?

Responded on

I know this is late for oats but In case others read this. The Phantom 40 does have a removable waist belt it attaches with heavy duty Velcro behind the breezeway panel.

This is the reply I received from Mountainsmith

to me
Hello,

Yes, the Phantom 40 has the same hip belt system as the Ghost 50. The hip belts can be completely removed. Let me know if you need any further assistance.

Best,

Innovative Pack!

This is a brand new pack from Mountainsmith. Coming in at about 42 Liters, it's a medium sized pack, but is capable of loads up to 35 lbs. I really like this pack. My favorite feature is Mountainsmith's "Breezeway" suspension system... it totally keeps the pack off your back, allowing air to flow through and cool your back while hiking.
