For sale is a Mountainsmith Chute backpack. Little to no info about this pack is available online since Mountainsmith released a second pack called the Chute later on but I expect this pack is from the 90s or early '00s but can't say for sure.
The design of this is pretty sweet as it is very minimal but has pockets and straps for easy organization. The hipbelt is two layers of fabric so won't serve you well for long term ski/board carry but for summit pushes or short approaches it serves well. One internal pocket keeps keys and Snickers bars handy and the overall packbody is large enough for all avy gear, a puffy jacket, waterbottle, repair/first aid kit, water, and food.
Mountainsmith Chute - $40.00 with free shipping to CONUS. Payment through Paypal. PM for details or to buy or make offer.
