Mountainsmith's Scream 25 pack is a highly durable feature-rich daypack with a removable webbing hipbelt for those people not carrying enough weight to justify a full harness. We like the pocket arrangements.
A perennial employee favorite, the new Scream 25 backpack offers durability with minimal weight, coming in at 1lb 5oz. The pack uses high tenacity Robic® fabric with our Ultra Tear-Strength PU coating and Aramid yarn woven throughout, preventing extended tears and abrasion.
The Scream 25 stuffs into its own top lid pocket for convenience when storing for travel, or as a makeshift camp pillow. Stash the bag into your favorite backpacking pack for summit assaults, count on it for light day hikes, or pack it with ropes for a day at the crag. This latest version has been upgraded to include a sternum strap, waist belt, more supportive shoulder straps, a convenient front panel pocket and even more durable, lightweight pack fabric.
Mountainsmith's Scream 25 pack is a lightweight daypack made from Robic fabric meaning you can have a highly durable pack that still comes in at a respectably low weight. It has a simple back panel with high void mesh to move sweat away, the straps are slightly padded and there's a removable webbing hipbelt.
Its a very simple harness system so the pack is designed for day loads rather than fast packing or anything longer, however it has a good range of features for its inteded use. We like the side mesh pockets, and a large external zipped pocket on the outside of the pack, although the latter pocket is compromised when the man compartment is full.
There's also a pocket in the lid and a bladder pocket inside the bag with a hanging hook and exit port. Overall its a good reliable daypack that will appeal to those wanting durability and a pack with a lot of features without a hipbelt.
