Review: Mountain Hardwear Splitter Station 40

The Splitter Station 40 is a robust new pack for 2018 that has a haul-bag shape and is constructed with 840d ballistic nylon construction with 600d TPU front paneling for abrasion resistance.

There is padding and lining on the bottom to increase durability and to help the pack stand on its own for easy loading.

The pack carries easy with the metal back-panel stay, comfy padded hip belt and strong padded shoulder straps.

One of the highlights is the dual diagonal top zippers on the main compartment. You unzip in a V-shape from either or both sides for full access to your gear.

There’s a big rope tarp in the bottom interior that is easily removed and gear clipping points all over. There’s a interior full-width gear loop and two exterior daisy chains running the full length of the front panel and daisy chains on the hip belt.

You can easily fit shoes, harness, double rack, plenty of draws, chalkbag, layers, food and water with room to spare.

The long zipper pulls with vinyl tubing make opening and closing the pack easy with weary fingers.

In Conclusion

The durability, comfort and look of the Splitter Station 40 makes it one of our top choices for hauling gear to your climb this summer.

It’s easy to pack and unpack, it keeps everything very organized and is easy to haul. What more could you ask for?
