The Quickie

  • The Quickie
  • Quality: High Tier at a mid-tier price. Lots of technology stuffed into this pack
  • Durability: Great Lifespan, Ripstop fabric, Easy patching,
  • Ease of Use: Adjustments are intuitive, and design allows for almost effortless hiking
  • Lifespan: I have yet to break mine, but considering the warranty, I would say forever.
  • Mountainsmith has somehow put all the premium features we look for in packs into their work. Honestly, it's pretty impressive how cheap they are compared to what they provide you.
  • Lifetime Forged for Life Warranty

The Details

The 2019 Mayhem 45 (2675 cubic inches / 44 L) was created with Spectra® Fiber, an ultralight, ultra-strong fiber that puts the Mayhem at the top of its class for weight and durability. For the rest of the world that hasn't memorized how big 45 L is, think of 12 Gallon Jugs of water. Used by military and law enforcement, Spectra® Fiber is an ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene known for its lightweight strength, abrasion resistance properties, and top tier strength-to-weight ratio. The Mayhem 45 is designed for one to three-night backpacking trips, hauling a suspicious amount of snuggies, or far away hostels. Jokes aside, This thing has a serious amount of tech, especially for something in this price range. The hex-ridged EVA back panel padding allows for Omni-directional airflow while the sock-style shoulder strap construction prevents the straps from digging into your body. The Interfaced Waistbelt system is designed and patterned to flow into the back panel allowing for a lightweight but intimate suspension fit and high levels of stability and comfort. As someone who has discovered in the past mid-hike that the hip and shoulder straps I had at the time were essentially just canvas razor blades, this is something to take seriously. If the straps aren't good for you, drop whatever pack you are holding and start over. But thankfully, with Mountainsmith, all you will probably have to do is choose which size you want.

All Mountainsmith products come with the Forged for Life Guarantee, the official Mountainsmith lifetime warranty.
