The Switch offers our famous Snake-Loader™ design in an everyday carry size …It really get's the people going!
With the Switch, you get all the versatility that you love about the Salute 34, just in a smaller and lighter 24 liter version. It all starts with that famous s-shaped zipper that goes through every panel of the pack making access to your gear easier than anything you've ever used. This zipper also allows the pack to open up flat into a mat that you can organize gear, coil rope, change a baby, or enjoy a lovely picnic on. Who knows?? There are so many possibilities, we're not here to judge how you use your Snake-Loader™ system, do with it what you will. To compliment all that zipper access the Switch also offers great organization and pocket options. With 9 pockets, including a large zippered front pocket, you can stash and organize things for days. We've never heard anyone say they don't enjoy comfort, so we added great carrying features like an HDPE framesheet, angle adjustable hipbelt and perforated foam. If you're one of those saps that has a job or goes to school then you'll appreciate the fact that the hipbelt is easily removable so when you're done being a hero in the hills you can galavant around the urban jungle with your working things and not look like a turd. The Switch 24 is an all-around pack that can adapt to any environment and make you look super awesome.

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.
