Description

Lightweight day pack that collapses down for easy storage.

For the enlightened few who've discovered the joys of carrying less weight, the Mountainsmith Scream 25 Mountainlight Backpack is a versatile, durable addition to your quiver. Weighing in under a pound and fitting around 1500 cubic-inches of gear, the Scream 25 Backpack lets you transport your minimalist kit into the wild without adding unnecessary pounds to your shoulders or lifting excessive amounts of dough from your pocketbook. Use it on its own for dayhikes or add it to your expedition kit for a light-and-fast summit bid.
  • Stay-free back panel keeps weight to an absolute minimum; the trade-offs are that loads don't transfer as well to your hips and the max recommended load weight is capped at 20 pounds
  • Removable hip-belt lets you shave extra ounces when carrying lighter loads (lighter loads don't necessarily require assistance from a hip-belt)
  • Top-loading main compartment with single compression strap and top lid provides ample room for stuffing your lightweight gear
  • Side compression straps let you expand and compress your pack volume to match your load
  • Internal hydration bladder and port means you can pipe nourishing fluids directly to your mouth
  • Zipper front pocket adds organization and flips inside out to store the entire bag
  • Side mesh pockets house water bottles or on-trail necessities
  • Recommended max load: 20 pounds

Minimalist and durable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The most obvious feature of this pack is that it stuffs into its own pocket to make it easier to take along on longer trips. There are several options out there for packable daypacks, but this one stood out to me for its tough materials, sturdy construction, and useful organization.

Unfortunately, many minimalist daypacks are made out of super thin materials and won't hold up to long term use. It seems crazy to me to buy something that won't hold up to use in the mountains, but if super light weight is your one and only goal then you'll probably look elsewhere. For an extra couple ounces, this pack gives you the peace of mind of knowing that your pack doesn't have to be babied. The materials are thicker than the competition, and the stitching seems pretty bomber to me.

The capacity of this pack seems about perfect. Once you get under about 20 liters of capacity, you'll have a hard time being able to bring enough stuff for a full day outing in all but the nicest conditions. This pack is compressible enough that it works for just your lunch and a windbreaker, but it is big enough that you can bring extra layers if you need to.

The danger with any pack like this is that you might overload it, especially with 24 liters of space. Before you buy this pack, you need to know that it has no structure whatsoever and has minimal padding. The structure issue can be solved by cutting out a rectangle of blue sleeping pad foam (to slide into the hydration bladder sleeve) or by simply packing carefully. The shoulder straps are wide enough (over 2 inches) that they don't dig into your shoulders and are plenty comfortable.

I really love the addition of two deep mesh side pockets. When I say deep, I mean that they easily swallow 32 ounce Nalgene or Gatorade bottles with plenty of room to spare. Once again, you need to watch your weight, but so long as you keep in mind what this pack is and what it is meant to do, the Scream 25 will serve you well.

Does thsi bag fold in on itself? I see that other similar bags do, but I can't find anything about this one.

Yeah, it folds into one of it's pockets. It's very compact when stuffed in the pocket. I recently used one as a day pack on a river trip. It's great because it doesn't take up any space when you aren't using it, but when you need a decent sized day pack it's perfect. Super comfy and even though it's really lightweight it seems to be super durable.
