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. This pack was constructed under the advice of local Colorado guides and climbing athletes to ensure it meets all the needs of more technical adventurers. For big climbs and long approaches, the Mutant 52 is the way to go.
FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION
Built to be lightweight and reliable with alpine-specific features such as dual ToolLocks™ with bungee tie-offs, helmet carry (52L and 38L only), strippable features, rope carry and a narrow profile for efficiency in the mountains.
Removable top lid (for 52L and 38L only), removable suspension (framesheet on 22L, framesheet and/or dual stays on 38L/52L), and a removable hipbelt on 52L allow the user to trim weight.
