Awesome pack overall

I got this pack a couple months ago and have taken it out a few times. I got it because I was sick of lugging around a 50L bag and having it half empty. I don't have a full trad rack, but I did take full top rope anchoring equipment and a full set of quickdraws out at once, along with all the necessary daytime gear like food, water, first aid, helmet, harness, etc. and it worked like a champ.

Its a simple design, only the main compartment, front pocket, and top pocket. Not much room for compartmentalization if that's what you're into, but it's simplicity adds to the strength of the pack. I'm confident this will never tear with crag use.

I did have a few comments I wanted to state that I didn't read about before I got this pack:

Firstly, the hydration bladder. I've read everywhere that people can't get a bladder into the inside sleeve. I had no issues with this. Yes, it is very tight, but its really not too difficult to get one in. I have attached a picture of the bag with a full 3L Osprey bladder inside it. I should note that this is the HydroForm bladder that has a bit of a rib to it, which helps me push it into the sleeve.

Secondly, the location of the compression straps. Its awesome that you can change the location of the compression straps, but there is an issue with their location. On the outside they block the outer pocket and on the top they block the top pocket. Not so much that you can't use them, but it is an inconvenience when you're trying to get your guide book or bug spray out of the pack while on the trail.

Thirdly (very small detail), there is no bottle pocket on the sides like most packs have. No biggie. If I'm bringing a gatorade or whatever I'll put it in water bottle and attach it via carabiner to the haul loops.

Overall this pack is a great day pack for climbing. Its not a great all-rounder, but it does well on a day hike and excels as a crag pack. The gear loops on the inside are awesome for keeping everything in order and the compression straps and haul loops let you carry an obscene amount of gear for a 30L pack.

Awesome pack overall

Can you fit a 70M climbing rope in the 30L...

Posted on

Can you fit a 70M climbing rope in the 30L version of this pack?
How about a 70M rope, at least one pair of shoes (preferably 2), a small rack, and a harness in the 30L?

Responded on

You can fit this stuff in there. It depends on the diameter of the rope to how tight it will be, but you will have to pack efficiently to make it all get in the pack and still have room to roll the top down.

One more Q:

Is the foam frame (easily) removable? I'd like to fit the whole pack in a M North face basecamp duffel, which I can't right now.

thx

Yes! open the zipper inside and pull it right out.

um...that doesn't seem to be correct....

Take a look at the second video clip. They are clearly stuffing the hydration bladder in the zippered pocket!

Responded on

Why not? There is a port and a loop at the top from which to hang the bladder.

Ha! right you are! I stand corrected.

Bladder issues!!

I brought this home from backcountry, intending to use my 3L Osprey hydration bladder with it but it is too large and does't fit! Will a 2L osprey work or what is supposed to go in there? There isn't much room in the hydration pocket.

Responded on

There actually isn't a pocket for hydration on this pack. The zipper is for access to the frame for custom shaping the aluminum stays. there is a clip to hang the reservoir, but not a specific pocket.

Bomb proof!

Solid bomb proof pack made for days on the rock. Love the organizer features in this pack to keep my gear sorted.

Anyone have any luck fitting the Pali Rope...

Anyone have any luck fitting the Pali Rope bag into the Miura 30? I know the 50L can fit it, but I'm looking for something a bit smaller that I can still carry my rope, gear, and a jacket in.

Responded on

I haven't ever had, or seen, a problem fitting a rope into a 30L pack. Unless you have a BIG rack of cams and other pro, I don't think you'll have any problems.

Durable and unique design

Theres no doubt in my mind that this pack would last years of abuse. The pack is made with burly materials.
The design is unique and takes a bit of getting used to.

The main compartment is big. I loved to idea of gear loops, although I never use them. The bottom of the pack is a kinda weird shape, and you have to shove your gear down there to make it really take up all the space. I love how you can just rip this pack open and get access to all your gear, it also packs up very quickly. BUT its hard to stuff a bunch of gear in this pack, unlike a lid closure you have to stop loading the pack at a certain point so you will be able to close and secure the straps.

Also like the external straps, great for overstuffing the pack and then strapping a rope to the outside.

The external jacket pocket is the perfect size for a puffy.

External key/misc pocket has generous space for all kinds of randoms you carry.

Suspension system is pretty good, although the hip belt is huge and is noticed on high steps and scrambles.

Overall I am liking this pack, and the only reason im really giving it 4 stars is for the fact you cant cram it full of stuff, and the hip belts are just a bit too big.

Awesome bag

This bag is awesome. It will take almost any bullet you can shoot at it--by bullet I mean serious abuse from sandstone, granite, etc.

If your looking for an ultralite bag this is not it, but then the muiras are designed for situations and abuse that would instantly vaporize an ultralite pack.

The features are fantastic. I love that the pack completely opens down the side so the whole front of the pack folds down. The gear slings on the inside are a great touch. The belt provides good support and holds the bag tight against your back without getting in the way. The roll top is just cool and is easier than unclipping and removing a top pouch to get into the main compartment. Also the roll top does not get in the way of the top pouch that is there. The removable rope straps are great for attaching lots of rope and it's nice that they can be moved from the back to the top of the pack for comfort or preference.

It is a fantastic bag for the approach hike and depending on how much climbing (or canyoning) gear and rope you need to take I find that 30-35 liters is good for between 2-4 days.

All in all i think it is my favorite bag of this size that I have ever come across.

Arc'teryx does it again . . . of course the Arc'teryx awesomeness also comes with an Arc'teryx price tag . . .

Amazing for a RTW Lightweight Trip

Damn, what a bag.

Durable, comfy, holds all I need for a round the world trip and is lightweight to boot. Fits in an overhead on the flight too!

I'm looking for a good bag that I can use...

Posted on

I'm looking for a good bag that I can use to carry my laptop and college books around in. I also want a good day pack/2 day pack. would the miura 30 be good?

Responded on

This pack would certainly hold your laptop and a couple of books, but it's designed to be used as a technical pack. Unless you have a good protective sleeve for your laptop you wont have much protection for it.

For use as a daypack or a two day pack, it would work just fine. It does have a few features that are designed more for use by climbers such as the internal gear loops. You could use the straps on the outside for attaching a tent or sleeping pad if you needed.

I guess bottom line is, yes you can use this pack for both, but you might be better off getting a pack that will protect your laptop a little better.

Favorite for Daytrips to the crag

I'm 6'0, 175lbs, 33-34" inseam, long torso and arms and the Tall fits perfect. It feels light and does not hamper agility much, the design is very well thought-out with a great athletic fit and I've crawled through some dense brush with this thing on. It's quite comfortable with easy access to all pockets and I am really glad I chose it. I mostly do day-trips, if I were doing more multi-day requiring more gear I'd want something larger but this pack is fantastic for day-trips. I added some cord connecting the main gear slings to the top hydration anchor, shown in the picture, that lets me hang more stuff and hang stuff higher in the pack.

You can easily tie your rope on to the outside.

In the main pocket I get two pairs of shoes, a lot of draws, two harnesses, chalk bags, a stuffable shell/fleece, a filled 70 oz bladder, and have room for more if I need it. The way it opens, with full access, is definitely super-convenient.

In the hood pocket I keep tape, a couple headlamps and other small items and have plenty more room in there.That leaves one extra external pocket where I usually keep food. This external pocket is accessible from inside the main pocket as well.

I love that you can remove the waist-belt, I removed it day one and haven't put it back on yet. I love packs with just a sternum strap so this was a key feature for me.I like that the external gear straps are removeable and reconfigurable. One downside is they may come off if they're just hanging there without the friction of holding something in place. Recognizing this I just take them off and store them inside if I'm not using them.

You can empty the pack and use it like a crazy-creek chair. It's not the best but it does work and if you're in the middle of nowhere it is definitely better than nothing and increases comfort level for sure.

I'm 5'11 about 165 can a full size 60mm rope fit in here with gear.

Best Answer Responded on

It might be a tight squeeze depending on how much gear you plan to take (just sport routes in the summer - probably okay; but if you start adding trad gear or winter stuff, its gonna be a touch too small, IMHO). I would stick the rope on the outside too.

Responded on

Thanks for the good info, oh i forgot to ask would a regular or a tall be better

Responded on

James, I'm basically the same size and I've got a regular that works well. You really can go either way and have it fit.
