OR – Mountainsmith Reboots Lumbar Packs For 2016

Sunday, August 9th, 2015

Mountainsmith has been making Lumbar packs for decades.  In fact, I remember several guys back in the early 90s attaching the Black version to the lower back (lumbar) of their Tactical Load Bearing Vests as a low profile alternative to the butt pack.

I checked them out at Outdoor Retailer and it looks like we’ll see some great alternatives to Black for those guys who want to put together an E&E bag or other home brew load carrying solution.

Golden, CO — Jul 21, 2015 – Mountainsmith—craftsmen of iconic backcountry equipment and recreational outdoor gear— will debut 2016’s completely redesigned lumbar pack line at Summer Outdoor Retailer. Innovative and built for off the beaten path excursions, these new Mountainsmith products offer outdoor an urban adventurers versatility to brave the elements, no matter what Mother Nature throws their way.

“Some 35 years ago Mountainsmith’s lumbar packs started as extremely simple, rugged, utilitarian outdoor pieces, made to carry load in a comfortable way while keeping things you need quick at hand,” says Mountainsmith designer Jacob Stein. “For our 2016 lumbar launch, our focus was to maintain these core characteristics while paying close attention to materials, modern relevant function, color, and style.”

Mountainsmith has taken a very careful approach to updating their iconic line of lumbar packs, placing their focus on improving durability and modern utility. Adding color-matched shock cord and stretch mesh allowed these bags to come together with cutting-edge color ways, while in depth studies on the fabrics and trims brought the introduction of Cordura® HP fabric throughout Mountainsmith’s entire lumbar line. These already rugged bags were upgraded to offer bombproof durability. Revisiting every feature and fine-tuning for comfort and utility, these are the best lumbar packs ever made, by the brand that invented the category over 35 years ago.

“We are very excited about our partnership with the CORDURA brand and know this translates to outstanding quality and durability,” adds Stein. “Mountainsmith strives to make products that people love and that will last a lifetime. We think we’ve hit the mark again in 2016.”
