Take everything you thought you knew about a backpack and forget it. The Apex from Mountainsmith raises the stakes of what a multiday adventure pack can be.
The new iteration of the Apex maximises both comfort and durability for those adventures that last more than an overnight trip. Built with a patented Tuning Fork Waistblet, the Apex cups the iliac crest hip bone for a more dynamic fit and improved load transfer. In a nutshell, this means you can carry more weight more comfortably.
A sturdy padded lumbar pad combined with Mountainsmiths famous Delta Load Compression system promote effective weight transfer to the legs enabling you to carry more for longer. Sock-style shoulder straps with no seams or hard edges removes the risk of hotspots improving the comfort of the pack over longer distances.
Increased padding on the waistbelt, adjustable torso range, and a hex-ridged back panel, the 2019 Apex 60 offers unmatched comfort on every adventure. On the trail, the advanced, tubular aluminium frame keeps the weight lower without sacrificing performance.
A U shaped zipper on the main body of the pack allows ease of access to the main compartment. With space to store the essentials in the top zipper and a secondary map pocket inside, know your valuables are safely secured.
The Apex offers maximum comfort for time on the trail. Ideal for both overnighters and thru-hikers alike, it sets a gold standard of a trekking back.
