We're getting back to our winter roots with the PowderKeg 32™.
This backcountry snow pack doesn't discriminate on how you choose to get down the mountain. Our VersaHaul™ strap system can carry a snowboard or skis any way. That's right, ANY WAY!.. Vertical, diagonal both ways, a-frame and horizontal. The PowderKeg 32™ uses our M-Flex™ Access aluminum wire perimeter frame to effectively support the weight of your snow gear and still allow backpanel access to the inside of the pack. This frame combined with our VariCant™ dual-pivoting hipbelt will flex and pivot to accommodate body motion so you'll never feel restricted by your pack while slashing pow or dropping cliffs. To protect the pack
from sharp edges, the front and side panels use tough and rubbery EPO fabric so it can stand up to years of edge abuse. The fabrics on this pack are coated in polyurethane and DWR for added strength that will also shed water and ice with ease. A large front pocket to stash snow tools, hipbelt pockets and a soft-lined goggle pocket make this pack unbeatable for the powder-hound in all of us.
VersaHaul™ ski/snowboard carry system
The VersaHaul™ is a well-thought out strap system that looks clean and has a 2-in-1 functionality. It allows skis to be carried ANY way (vertical, diagonal both ways and a-frame). Snowboards can be carried vertically using the VersaHaul straps or horizontally using the backpanel. The straps are organized in a very clean but versatile way. They can be released and slide to create loops that carry skis or a snowboard in just about any way possible. The upper straps use a pull-in style hipbelt enclosure that creates a 2-in-1 function that not only secures your gear but compresses the pack as it does so. The deployable bottom anchor strap holds your gear in place from slipping downward and is coated in polyurethane for strength and durability against sharp edges. This strap can be fed through the nylon loops to creat many carrying possibilities and can even be configured into 2 ice-axe carry loops.

Growing up in the mountains of Colorado we spent most of our lives in the outdoors. Our summers were consumed by hiking, camping and fishing and we devoted our time to snowboarding in the winter. This lifestyle was very familiar and comfortable to us, but in 2009 we were nearing the end of our path in college surrounded by uncertainty. We had no idea where our trail would lead once we set foot into the "real world". Jobs for college grads were few and far between due to the poor economy and the idea of taking a traditional "white-collar" path after college terrified us.
A few months after graduating college, we forged our own path and decided to start a new brand of backpacks. Our never-ending love for the outdoors and refusal to settle led to the birth of MHM. This passion is carried directly into the quality and innovation of the packs we make. Why did we choose backpacks? Well we believe that backpacks are one of the single most important items people use. Whether you are trekking through the woods or going to work and school, people need an efficient way to carry their belongings without having to balance it on their heads or strain their backs.
The term "corporate" doesn't apply to us and it never will. We are a couple of guys, who love being outside doing what we love. Spending time outdoors and talking to people directly about what they want in a pack is what inspires our designs. Our packs do not follow a traditional path, as they bring a new and fresh perspective to the pack world. Using only the best fabrics and an over-obsessive attention to detail has produced what we believe to be the best packs out there. The quality, unique features and compartmentalized design are like nothing else. We truly hope you enjoy using our packs as much as we've enjoyed designing them for you.
