TORSO SIZING - Many Osprey packs are available in multiple sizes to fit a range of torso lengths. To determine your torso measurement, please see diagram below.  

*NOTE: This measurement starts at the iliac crest, which is the top of your hipbone on the side of your body that acts like a shelf. From this point, measure to the C7 vertebra, the knobby bone at the base of your neck when you put your head down. Reference the torso length below to match the correct pack size.

HARNESS SIZING - Osprey Xenith, Xena, Aether, Ariel, Atmos and Aura packs offer interchangeable shoulder harnesses. Harness sizing usually corresponds to pack size. A properly fit harness should terminate 2" to 3" beneath the armpit when at the proper torso length. The webbing should not touch the side of the body below the padding.

Men's/Unisex Pack Sizing

With a stripped down design and all the right features, the Osprey Mutant 52L is a perfectly designed climbing pack. Comfortably supporting gear for trad, ice climbing, or ski mountaineering, this well-balanced technical pack keeps you feeling solid on unsteady terrain. The spacious 52L capacity and simplified design makes it quick to throw everything in your Mutant when it's time to pack out.

The Osprey Mutant 52 Pack has everything you need for the approach to basecamp and the route ahead. The cavernous main compartment has a ton of room for gear and clothing, dual ice tool attachments, reinforced A-frame ski carry, and wand/picket pockets secure your toys and necessities to the exterior and for harder pitches a three-point haul system allows you to bring the pack up once you've established the belay. The hipbelt includes gear loops, and if you're moving light and fast and need access to your harness, the top lid and hipbelt are removable to save weight and space. Like every pack Ospey make, the Mutant 52 is backed by their All Mighty Guarantee. For big climbs and long approaches, the Mutant 52 is the way to go.
