Gallatin Peak 40L Backpack

You never want to set out on a backcountry ski tour without bringing all the gear you might need, especially not when you're hitting multiple peaks or lines in the same day. Perfectly sized for day-long excursions and outfitted with all the storage features you need for backcountry gear, the Mystery Ranch Gallatin Peak 40L Backpack will be a trusty partner for you in snowy mountains. As with any good backcountry pack, it's got a quick-access snow-tool pocket that'll keep your avalanche safety tools within easy reach in case of a slide, as well as convenient back-panel access that lets you access gear while your skis are loaded up and obstructing the top entry point.

Skis and snowboards can be carried easily when you're bootpacking your way up steep summit slopes, and there's even a special reinforced front panel that mimics the path of your diagonal ski carry to prevent wear and tear from sharp ski edges. This pack is also hydration-reservoir compatible, so when you're huffing it up the skin track water will never be too far away. Tack on a supportive waistbelt, a telescoping shoulder yoke, a high-density frame sheet, and load-cinching compression straps, and you'll have no problem carrying everything but the kitchen sink up and down powdery peaks.

  • Mid-sized ski pack for day-long excursions in the backcountry
  • Front-access avi-tool pocket keeps your most important gear close by
  • Multiple ski and snowboard carries help you navigate steep bootpacks
  • Back-panel access lets you grab gear while your skies are loaded
  • Front reinforcement increases durability during a diagonal ski carry
  • Hydration-compatible design ensures easy access to water
  • Telescoping yoke adjusts the harness height for a comfortable carry
  • Pack buckles are design for easy operation with gloves on

Pretty Great

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Let's start with the good. This pack is a good size, plenty of room for extra layers, skins, snacks, helmet, and even camera gear. For shorter tours and less gear it could be a bit too big. The helmet carry works great and stays out of the way when not in use. My favorite feature is the rear entry zipper which gives you quick access to anything in your pack even if it is buried in the bottom. This is huge for photographers like me. I can keep my smaller camera bag, lenses and accessories safely buried in the bottom of the bag, then when it's time to for a photo. I can open up the whole back and quickly pull out what I need without emptying your pack. The only complaints i have on this pack are the lack of pockets and the buckles they use on the waist belt. I would love to have a few pockets on the waist band so i can stash things I need quick access to such as lens caps, snacks, etc... I really love the buckles they used with the major exception being the waist belt. I found it near impossible to buckle them with gloves or mittens on. With a beacon in the pocket of my bibs on my chest it makes my jacket stick out just far enough to make it hard to see my buckles when i look down, and the unique buckle was pretty difficult to operate by touch alone, even more so when you have gloves on. This may be a niche concern for just my set up, but still, it bugged. Overall I really liked the pack, despite the small annoyances, I would highly recommend it if you're looking for a larger pack.

Great updates!

- removed from Shove It pocket and replaced it with a stow-able helmet carry - attached the top pocket which removed the webbing and buckles - improved accessibility to back panel opening - a much cleaner design by removing the webbing and buckles from the top lid and Shove It pocket
