Don't let rain put a damper on your plans.
Spitting rains might make your hike a touch more difficult, but a rainy day in the mountains is a heck of a lot better than an afternoon spent glued to your couch. So even when rain's guaranteed, count on the Mountain Hardwear Rainshadow 36 Outdry Backpack to keep all of your essentials protected from the precipitation as you enjoy the misty mountain views. The main compartment is made with Mountain Hardwear's OutDry waterproof membrane to ensure waterproof protection, while the water-resistant, zippered top opening ensures water can't easily seep through the cracks. A quick-access front stash pocket is an ideal spot to store a rain jacket and is equipped with drainage slots so it doesn't hold water when the rain really starts to come down. To assure a comfortable carry, Mountain Hardwear fitted this pack with a padded mesh back panel that sits close to the back and contoured shoulder straps to keep everything comfortable when you're on the move.

- Q & A
all around decent pack
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
the pack was light, comfortable and gear inside stayed dry while fly fishing and wading through rivers in Montana. I would have hoped for beefier hip belt pads and the top opening is awkward to open, difficult to zipper closed if the pack is stuffed to capacity. the loop closures for trekking poles are useful but often poles often slip out on laying the pack down if the pack is not completely full.
Comfortable and secure
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This is a well designed pack. I just got back from a 6 mile hike in the rain, and everything inside stayed dry. It also rode very comfortably, and can be tightened down snugly enough that there's no shifting at all. Good work, Mountain Hardwear!
