    Comments about Osprey MUTANT 28:

    An excellent sport climbing pack, big enough to hold all of the gear, clothes and food for a day at the crag. Then just use the rope cinch on the top and you are all set!

      Comments about Osprey MUTANT 28:

      I've used the past and current generation of the Osprey Mutant and this is my favorite. This pack is always with me on ice climbing trips or when I'm visiting a sport climbing crag. It'll hold what you need it to, and the rope/helmet carry system works great. The "reverse bucket" opening makes loading bigger items like a rope or light trad rack easy. The pack carries well with lighter loads and does a reasonable job when you push the load limits. I do find it necessary to buckle the hipbelt behind the pack when wearing a harness. The ice tool attachment system, while fantastic for almost all tools, is a bit spotty if you have a larger gap in the head of your ice tool. Overall, a great pack that I use through all seasons.
