    Built for true alpine style pursuits.

    Osprey's Mutant 38L Backpack carries your essentials whether you're on a technical alpine objective or running laps on ice climbs. Complete with the necessary features required for light and fast missions, the Mutant 38L strips itself of the extra components of a typical technical pack. Reinforced A-frame ski carry holds your skis securely and the 3-point haul system distributes the weight of the pack evenly when clipped at an anchor or hauling up a climb. The hip belt features two gear loops to clip and carry equipment that can be easily accessed when wearing the pack while climbing. Ice tool locks safely stow a set of ice tools, and an included helmet carry attachment conveniently holds a climbing helmet during the approach.

    • A streamlined pack hauls your gear on light and fast alpine objectives
    • 38 liter capacity is perfect for long, single day missions
    • A frame ski carry securely holds your planks while straddling a ridge
    • 3-point haul system fastens pack to an anchor on multi-pitch climbs
    • Hip belt and ice axe gear loops allow for additional gear storage
    • Helmet carry stores your helmet when hiking back to the car
    • Item #OSP00BC

    Love the previous version of this pack. It had a zippered lid, and a rope AND helmet carry. I see no mention of a rope carry strap in this description? Are they relying on the buckle lid to retain a rope alone?
