Those dedicated Mountainsmith followers who thought that the Ghost and Phantom were spirits of the past rejoiced two years ago with their rebirth in the Mountainlight Series. They were further enthused one year ago with the addition of minimalist and bike/running models. 2014 will not disappoint. The new and unisex-sized Mystic 65 is being introduced by consumer demand for a Mountainlight top loading large volume pack designed for longer trips and more gear.

No matter the product, Mountainsmith designers are expert at making packs of all kinds to comfortably carry loads of any size. This Mystic 65 does not disappoint. It utilizes trademarked suspension features that include the Iliac Crest ShelfÔ (ICSÔ) hip belt and Lumbar Control PointÔ (LCP) padding that accentuate the body’s natural ability to bear weight on the skeleton and provide a more comfortable ride on the shoulders. This technology, coupled with the Breezeway™ trampoline style back panel, allows backpackers to cover more miles, more comfortably than ever before. 

In reverse of a traditional waistbelt, the prominent curvature is at the top instead of the bottom and will optimize load transfer and help distribute the weight comfortably on the iliac crest hip bone. Perforated air-flow shoulder straps provide comfort and increased circulation. Airmesh padding on the waistbelt and shoulder straps incorporate a DWR (Durable Water Repellant) anti-sweat finish. An internal hydration bladder sleeve is accessible through a centrally located exit port. Other features include side compression straps, tool and trekking pole mount loops, front stash pockets to fit Ten Essentials and side pockets for SIGG and Nalgene style water bottles.
