UNUSED Mountain Laurel Designs Prophet backpack - $290 (Ashland, OR)

123

condition: new
make / manufacturer: Mountain Laurel Designs
model name / number: Prophet
size / dimensions: 48 liter, 2900 CI

Mountain Laurel Designs Prophet backpack. Completely unused, in perfect condition.

48L, 2900 CI, 17 ounces, load range 18-25 pounds, size small, color "stealth gray." The Prophet pack is sized for modern ultralight and super ultralight backpacking. It is also an exceptional alpine-attack style climbing pack. With one of the most supportive and cushioned hip-belts in any frameless pack, S-shaped unisex comfort shoulder straps, and curved side panels, this is a pack you can wear all day in comfort.

Includes 2 custom-made hipbelt pockets (worth $32) and a rain cover (worth $30) - also completely unused. Altogether, the retail value of this pack, plus extras, is $292. I recently bought it prior to a thru-hike and decided at the last minute to use my older pack for its "known"-ness. The 30-day window for returns had already passed, so I'm selling it here. The advantage to potential buyers is a) Not paying shipping and b) Being able to try on the pack prior to purchase.

FEATURES
• NEW FOR 2017: Curved Side Panels: A slight curve from the waist to the shoulders moves the load closer to the upper back for more comfort. This also creates a slightly larger main compartment higher in the pack that helps load control by moving the heavier and higher packed gear higher to reduces shoulder stress.
