Description

Hike in to base camp and make a push for the summit with The North Face Prophet 65 Backpack.

When you have an extended approach on your next alpine climb, pack your gear into The North Face Prophet 65 Backpack. The North Face outfitted this large technical backpack with everything an expedition climber needs to summit. Load your climbing gear into the Prophet 65 Pack's voluminous 4000 cubic inch interior, organize your pro with the color-coded straps, and secure your ice screws and ice axe into any of the multiple tool loops. You'll shoulder your gear in comfort thanks to this lightweight backpack's molded E-VAP back panel and shoulder straps, and body-forming hip-belt. If you need to bring a bit more gear, this Summit Series Backpack expands by 610 cubic inches (10L) to accommodate an extra rope and food. Removable aluminum stays let you cut down the Prophet 65 Backpack's already paltry 3lb 9oz, and a removable bivy pad has your back for those unexpected nights below the summit.

Some Improvement Needed

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I used this pack for a few simple summits such as Moran and some ice climbing trips. I broke a buckle on a side strap with little effort but never had an issue with any other strap or buckle. While packing out my rope and some other gear (maybe 35-40lbs) the should strap snapped at the ring that connects it to the frame.

I enjoyed the pack and liked how it functioned for the most part. I would have enjoyed the buckles to be removeable and replaceable without sewing needed. On long hikes with a load a wearer will notice the waste band slips and you'll soon be wearing the load on your shoulders. Multiple access points to the main pocket, dividers, and a convertable day pack would be great improvements.

Broke the shoulder strap, but still not deterred

Overall, a great pack. Simple design and pretty rugged. Towards the end of the summer backpack season, one of the shoulder straps snapped right at the metal ring during a 4 day trip. Seems I'm not the only one with this issue. But, Backcounty's stellar customer service made up for the hassle of dealing with returns & replacements; so, still 4 stars. BTW, I replaced my broken Prophet with the exact same pack...

Light but NOT STURDY

THE GOOD:
I bought this backpack in a NorthFace store in Singapore, in 2008. I loved it because it is light and it showed good design. Buckles, the way you have a velcro that ties all the loose straps in, etc. I used it in the alps in 2008, in New Zealand in 2009, in several other places (climbing in Thailand, Malaysia etc). It died on me in Nepal this year, after only 2 years and 2 longer (2 wks) trips.

THE BAD:
It does not have a bottom zipper to create a lower compartment in which one can store a sleeping bag - not a manufacturing defect, but still something one must consider, and I didn't.

THE UGLY:
The shoulder straps are connected to the metal buckle on the backpack using a light, plastic-y material. This material BROKE, i.e. it tore, leaving me with a shoulder strap completely detached from the backpack. The material from the other shoulder strap hangs by a bit, i.e is not completely torn but it will follow. This happened in the middle of the Hymalayas, during the Annapurna Circuit Trek and I had to do some improvisations to ensure i can actually carry my backpack. The sad part is that I didn't even put this backpack to extensive use.

Super Duper

I ve had this bag for 2 years now and I have come to love it. At first didnt appreciate it that much but as soon as I got it out there I was stoked on it. Love the ice-axe loops,gear and the crampon holder on the outside so your gear doesnt get torn up. Would like to have the brain split up a bit more but what ever. Very good mountaineering bag. Can carry skis, boards and a bunch of other stuff

Hi, I would like to know if this backpack is a good option for women. I need it for backpacking, and Im pondering between the Prophet 45 and the 65. Its my first backpack, and Im not very tall, Im 1.58 m so Im not sure is this is the best.

Responded on

It depends on the backpacking you are gonna be doing if you think you might go on longer treks then you ll need more gear to take the 65 would be your best bet. The 65 is bigger than the 45. I have the 65 and absolutely love it

Absolutely love this thing!

I used to be a big fan of the external frame pack, but once l was able to afford one of these bad boys l jumped on it and its my go-to-bag for just about everything. although l wish there was a separate compartment for my sleeping bag in the bottom, l have since then gotten over it and love how much space this thing has! Don't get me wrong, l like my other bags but this thing is....friggen awesome.

What type of side pockets are on the Prophet? Are they just waterbottle pockets or can you acually store gear in the pockets and not worry about it falling out during a blizzard?

Great multi use pack

This is a great pack! Its light and huge inside but it can cinch down when you dont use all the space. Its good for multinight adventures and its specialty alpine accents, it is great. Its manuverable, comfortable, and has all the features I could ever want. Trust me this was worth the money. Dont buy anything less than the best. My first trip with this pack was a overnight snowshoe trip up the Tillyjane trail on Mt. Hood. And it out performed my expectations. It haulled everything with room to spare and was very comfortable. Which is one of the most important things. I would recommend this pack to anyone thats looking for a multinight, multi use, technical pack.

Light & Serious

One of the lightest big mountain packs out there. You save a lot of weight with the finesse of this pack with its light material and hip belt. It fits and handles big loads- I just used this for hauling up to 100lbs loads up on Denali. It also cinches down much smaller..also with a removable top. A simple, uncomplicated and reliable pack for multiple mountain uses. The A-frame ski carry works great, with enough loops and basic extras to attach what you need externally. There is a hydration back sleeve internally, excellent strap adjustment system, and a comfy back panel. Save the weight, and get the goods!
