The Osprey Mutant 38 is a pack designed for year-round ascents. Super light, flexible, strippable and seasonally versatile you can rely on this perennial climbing partner. In the winter you will welcome the snowshedding backpanel, side ski carry loops and dual ToolLockâ„¢ system which allows quick and secure ice axe attachment. In the summer youâ€™ll be feeling the heat but enjoying the EVA die-cut ventilated shoulder harness and the ability to strip 380g from the total pack weight by removing any features you wonâ€™t need. The main entry to the Mutant 38 is through a floating and removable top lid, which means you can overload your pack like a packhorse or remove the lid totally for greater head clearance and lighter weight. Lesser climbing packs have minimal weather protection and compression when in this mode, but not the Mutant 38. Utilise the built-in FlapJacketâ„¢ that not only provides a weatherproof closure; it keeps your gear fully compressed. Also integrated into the top pocket you will find a rapid deploy mesh helmet storage pouch. The reverse-wrap Splitterâ„¢ hipbelt delivers your choice of comfort, minimalism or gear racking options. Rock climbing in the summer or ice climbing and ski touring in the winter, your Mutant will never be off your back.

Santa Cruz, California, 1974. Mike Pfotenhause sits down at his sewing machine and embarks on a challenge. A challenge to create an innovative backpack that is complex enough to move with the body. From a head full of ideas and a burning passion, Osprey was formed.
Fast forward to today, Mike’s one-man vision has grown into a wide range of Osprey rucksacks and accessories that are being used from the highest of mountains to the remotest of islands and everywhere between.
Osprey only design and produce high quality products that are built to last. Innovation is in every strand of each pack and an identity born out of true specialism, Osprey continue a true pioneering spirt that it started with in 1974.
