    The Pfeiff, Grand Teton, and other peaks.

    The Pfeifferhorn's Northwest Coulour consists of a 50-degree chute to ski down followed by a 50-foot rappel, and there's a four mile steep skin thrown into the mix, and Millet's Matrix 30 MBS Backpack is ready for it all. Its Mobility Back System consists of a swivel waist belt that moves with you during the ascent and descent. Pair that with padded 3D mesh at the back, waist, and shoulders, and you're in for a comfy ride.

    The Matrix also has a pocket configuration specifically designed for anything from ski mountaineering to backcountry touring. There's a compartment with slots for a probe and shovel, and a hydration pocket tucked underneath. You can remove the helmet holder if you always wear your brain bucket, and the rope strap secures your rappel line if there isn't room inside the large main compartment. There are also zippered and side pockets for crampons, valuables, and electronics.

    Outside Magazine Gear of the Year

      Outside Magazine selected Millet's Matrix MBS as Gear of the Year: With ice-axe retention you can release with the pack on, gear loops for ‘beaners and belay devices, and an integrated crampon pocket, the Matrix is purpose built for ski mountaineering. But you don’t have to rope up to appreciate how light, roomy, and useful the Matrix is. The diagonal ski-carry system – a quick buckle and cinch of a strap and you’re off – leaves the top pocket and pack body accessible with the skis in place…

      it's a great one day backpack

        normally,the backpack which blew 40L has no good back-system,in the past ,this have a great backpack named crossvent 35 made by lowealpine,but today,millet's mbs system is more powerfull than ever within small backpack. its great comfort for 10kg lord process in one day trip.

        Millet nailed it on this one

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This is my go to pack. I've used it countless times ski touring, hiking, ice climbing and just as a day pack. The diagonal ski carry has worked really well for me. Same goes for the ice axe carry system. But the best part of the backpack is it's fit and carry with the MBS system. I'm always on the move with this pack and you can forget it's there with the mobility of the waist band. I've typically got everything inside the pack, but they have put in some great pockets on the lid for easy access to a quick snack, small camera or phone charger.
        Great pack and I'd definitely recommend!

        Sleek, comfortable, light

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        The Matrix 30 MBS is a streamlined, very comfortable ski touring pack. Reinforcement along the diagonal ski-carry zone ensures that sharp ski edges wont rip the fabric. A large lid opens to the main compartment with the skis still attached, and the carry system is super fast and easy. The MBS (Mobility Back System) is a pivoting hip belt that matches the most flexible part of your sine, where the pivot point is higher than comparable pivoting packs from BD or Arc'teryx. Makes for a super comfy, ergonomic carry system with a lightweight yet beefy harness. Lightweight, versatile, and well-priced, with an ISPO Gold award to boot!

        Sure would be nice if Backcountry would make the effort to have more than one photo of their products. Personally, I wouldn't purchase a pack w/out being able to see the backside which will make contact with my back. Many other sites have several photos to allow perspective buyers the needed info (via photos) to make an educated purchase.

        Thanks Maro, this is very helpful. It looks very comfy & supportive.

        It seems to be geared a bit more towards winter play, but most likely be good for hikes & climbs in the warmer months too.

        Thanks, Scott
