If you are looking for a new pack that will not only take heavy loads and endure all kinds of weather but also one that is great looking and also will keep your gear organized and easy to carry, then you should consider checking out the Mountainsmith Ghost pack.

The Mountainsmith Ghost pack is an all day pack designed with comfort, durability, and organization in mind. This is the top-of-the line high capacity backpack designed for rough use. The pack comes equipped with two optional extras, the Recon Frame Stabilizer and the Recon Frame pad cushion. The pack has been loaded with features that make it great for all-around backpacking, even on long treks, including the 3850 cu in (depending on the size you buy). The suspension is provided by Rockshopping, a patented design that provides a snug fit with no softening up in the saddle.


This is not a product for those who are just looking for a comfortable backpack, and for the most part the Mountainsmith Ghost pack lives up to this. The large pack is made of extremely tough and durable materials, making it able to handle a lot of wear and tear. Some of the features include a rear compartment that is larger than the main compartment. This is great for putting some of the longer day-packs like the Gregory, which would normally be stored in the larger back compartment.


Other features include an adjustable suspension system, rack and pinion drives, a dual-use polyurethane frame, high-visibility nylon webbing and a plethora of padded compartments and pockets. Mountainboards, surfboards and standup paddleboards can be accommodated within the large pack as well. The suspension system is adjustable allowing for the most neutral setting on the bike. In addition, the suspension system is made of extremely tough and durable materials that will hold up to a lot of use.


High-visibility nylon webbing is used extensively in the Mountainsmith Ghost suspension pack. It's been specifically designed for cyclists, allowing for a very secure and comfortable fit. Mountainboards and standup paddleboards can also be packed and locked along with the backpackers gear and clothing. Paddles and other equipment like helmets, paddles and skis can also be packed separately. With such a large amount of options for customization, cyclists will love Mountainsmith's Ghost Backpack.
