Apex 80


Ex. tax/Non UK:£145.83

Completely redesigned, the Mountainsmith Apex 80 backpack maximises comfort and durability for more miles, longer days, and more efficient load-carry. Ideal for gear-intensive backpacking where you may have to carry for many days without resupply or for winter trips.


The Apex 80 is built with Mountainsmith's Tuning Fork Waist belt, designed to cup the iliac crest of the hip bone for a more dynamic fit and improved load transfer.

Increased padding on the lumbar pad and their signature Delta Load Compression System stabilise and transfer weight for more efficient and comfortable carry. With a 'sock-style' shoulder strap construction (no seams or hard edges means no digging into the body), increased padding on the waist belt, adjustable torso range, and a hex-ridged back panel, the Apex 80 offers unmatched comfort on every adventure. On trail, the advanced, tubular aluminium frame keeps the weight lower without sacrificing performance.

Whether you’re at your campsite or on the go, reach for the U-shaped zipper for easy access into the main compartment. Store the essentials in the zippered top lid (secondary map pocket inside) and stash your phone in the stretch mesh zippered waist belt pockets.

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