The fundamental principle behind Mountainsmith's All-Terrain Day packs is versatility rolled into an eco-friendly construction utilizing 100% recycled PET fabric. These packs are outdoor-athletics-influenced, designed with comfort and function in mind for those who want one bag to serve a dual purpose between daily urban grind and weekend adventure. They offer features and options technical enough to carry climbing and hiking gear but utilitarian enough for urban exploring or campus use.

The Recycling Process… Mountainsmith developed the outdoor industry's first recycled PET fabric for use in packs. The plastic bottles used in the recycling process come from all over Asia including Japan, China, Taiwan, and Korea. Those are the countries that have taken the financial initiative to utilize plastic bottles for recycling into fabric. The bottles are processed, cleaned and converted to flakes before being shipped from these countries to Taiwan. That is where Mountainsmith's ReDura™ yarn (polyethylene teraphthalate, aka PET) is woven and then coated with protective polyurethane to further increase the material's overall strength and durability.

MODEL LINE-UP AND SPECIFICATIONS
Three different styles and sizes for day trips, short hikes, or campus use.
They are each available in Sangria Red, Lotus Blue, or Pinon Green.
Shared features include: an airmesh back panel with lumbar support. Shoulder strap attachment loop for Mountainsmith camera cases. Elastic sternum strap and bite valve catch. Removable sternum strap safety whistles. Internal hydration bladder sleeve. Side compression straps. Side panel mesh pockets that fit SIGG™ and Nalgene® style water bottles. Haul handles. Interior key clips.

RED ROCK 25 – The Red Rock 25 utilizes 15 plastic recycled 16-oz bottles.The most versatile of the three day packs for cross-over activities such as day-hiking, school use or as an airline carry-on. Volume: 1648ci/27L

CLEAR CREEK 20 - The Clear Creek 20 utilizes 13 plastic recycled 16-oz bottles. Designed for a day in the park or campus use. Volume: 1220ci/20L
