Black Diamond Mission 50 Backpack -

Built to tackle everything from mixed pitches on Camp Bird Road to big ice routes in the Ghost, the Mission 50 is Black Diamond's super-durable pack outfitted for the demands of winter cragging and alpine climbing. The Mission's reACTIV XP suspension allows the pack to move with you while stabilizing big loads on the approach. The pack's 50-liter capacity swallows your ropes, rack, layers and other essentials while the ice-tool PickPockets™ and exterior crampon pouch secure your sharp things. The Mission 50's padded hipbelt is also removable for streamlining on alpine routes.




  • Removable lid and hip-belt help you pare the pack down for your summit push


  • reActive XP suspension system blends fixed shoulder straps with an ultra-responsive, floating hip-belt that responds to your body's movements for greater comfort and stability

  • Removable, padded hipbelt with fixed webbing belt


  • Thermoformed, vented back panel helps circulate fresh air between the pack and your back to keep you feeling comfortable when on the move


  • Hydration compatibility means you don’t have to fumble for your ice brick of a water bottle when you get parched on the approach


  • Tuck-away rope strap helps you stash your lifeline


  • IceLink ice tool attachment, three-point haul system, and welded crampon patch make this pack a tailor-made storage and transport unit for metal-grabbing ice warriors

Black Diamond Mission 50 Backpack Reviews:


The Mission 50 (similarly to other BD climbing packs) has a smart design with basic top-loading access, carries skis or ice climbing gear well, and can be loaded to the brim for a 5 day climb in the mountains. I like the simple design and clean style, but unfortunately the fabric (though it feels durable) rips easily and seams blow out after usage with heavier weights. The Mission 50 is an ideal pack for guiding in the Pacific Northwest for 3 day climbs, but it doesn't last more than a season, either by death via 1,000 tears or seam explosion, pick your poison.

As the owner of many packs I know that one is too few and a million never enough. I added this pack to the quiver as a larger ski/mountaineering pack for when I am shouldering a bit more of the load or decide to bring the kitchen sink on the adventure of the day. It skis well and carries a load quite capably.
