Get It Before Labor Day Weekend—Order With Free 2-Day*by 5pm MT 9/2/15


A durable, padded crag bag that keeps your gear organized so you can rack up quickly.

Keep your sport or trad climbing gear organized and protected with the Arc'teryx Miura 35 Backpack. This mid-sized, fully padded crag bag hauls your gear to and from the crack and works as a rope bucket. A surround zip system enables the pack to open up completely flat, while multiple pockets, gear loops, and daisy chain attachments keep you organized so you can rack up quickly and get on your next route.

  • C² (composite construction) system's minimized construction lamination decreases pack weight and makes the pack sit close to the body, which minimizes load movement and backward pull and increases energy conservation
  • Ergonomically shaped shoulder straps feature 500D ATY nylon silicone-treated PU fabric for durability and protection against dirt, snow, and water pick-up, while EV 50 closed-cell foam resists compression damage and adapts well to temperature changes
  • 50mm 2-inch webbing hip-belt and adjustable sternum strap supply better carry comfort
  • Spacermesh lining in the shoulder straps provides airflow and comfort while hydrophobic polyester yarn repels water for protection
  • Back panel consists of HD 80 foam for support, structure, and comfort against the back while burly double-weave fabric offers strength, durability, and next-to-body comfort
  • Surround zip system enables the pack to open completely flat for easy access to your rope or gear
  • Body fabric features 840D nylon with a 6.6 basket weave for high abrasion-resistance and an exceptionally smooth surface that resists fabric snag
  • Hydroport and Hydro Clip tube work with your hydration reservoir (reservoir sold separately)
  • Single top pocket with key clip for your wallet, keys, and cell, while dual front zippered pockets stash your map, guidebook, or additional items
  • Internal zippered pocket holds your clippers, tape, or headlamp
  • Front daisy chain attachment system attaches additional items
  • A bungee attachment system is included, but not installed
  • Internal gear loops keep your climbing gear organized
  • Single top and dual side carry handles for easy transport between routes

Buy a bigger one if you're doing trad

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The backpack is very spacious. I had no trouble fitting my 60m rope, harness, shoes, quickdraws, a set of nuts, six cams, and helmet all in it! But I think you'd have trouble if you have a bigger trad rack. The backpack feels really great on my back, even before I clipped the chest and waist bands!

From the crag to the alpine.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

It seems like Arc'teryx designed the Miura to get your gear to and from sport crags, so I naturally felt inclined to take it up the Grand Teton and back in a day. In some ways, the Miura is a dream for alpinists. It's light, wears well, and leaves room for your harness.

I was surprised at how much gear this pack could actually fit. My short pack stored a twin rope, harness, shoes, helmet, cord, belay device, a puffy, three additional layers, and all the food and water I needed for a fourteen-mile, 6,000-foot, twenty-hour adventure.

Fit to the brim, the Miura can also store my 70M 9.8mm rope, a double rack, my helmet, shoes, harness, belay device, 10 alpine draws, anchors, and water. I'm sure I could still fit extra layers and water without too much hassle.

My only complaint on my alpine trip was that this pack lacks in padding. Granted, Arc'teryx didn't design this pack for long trips up to the alpine, so I shouldn't be upset at the stiff back panel and flimsy waistbelt webbing. I think I may sew a hipbelt on or something. But if you want to go light and fast while still storing a significant amount of gear, the Miura is totally the way to go.

From the crag to the alpine.

More space than I thought.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This is a good pack. At first seeing the pack after receiving it in the mail I wasn't positive I would be able to fit all my gear for a regular climbing day in it but I was wrong. I am able to fit a 60 m rope with 12 draws, a grigri and atc, climbing shoes, chalk bag , 32 oz water bottle, extra bag of chalk, guide book, sunscreen, keys, sunglasses, phone, a packed lunch with some protein bars, headlamp and a light jacket and there is still a small amount of room left. All this gear was just shoved in the bag. If packed right I believe more space can be provided. The bag holds up well to abuse and its padded so throwing it down after a long day when you exhausted won't be a problem for the contents you are carrying.

Great cragging pack, history is the past

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this pack for cragging and approaches where you won't be climbing with it. It's almost perfect for that purpose, with a huge capacity that holds a 70m, double trad rack, 3L water and food. The pack carries well and is durable, comfortable with few other frills for better or worse. The material is burly and I like the off-gold color. There's a four handles, one for each side of the backpack which makes it easy to handle and maneuver.

Theres a total of four pockets. The pockets are large. The pockets expand into the pack when you put stuff into them, which eats some space inside, but I think this is a great tradeoff. There's so much room already that you can usually manage unless you are really hauling. (I've fit a DSLR in the top pocket!). This interior pocket design means a smooth exterior, important if you are doing a manky or bushy approach. This packability is seriously underrated and useful when you are stuffing this pack into a trunk loaded with gear.

This also fits as an airplane carryon, which is pretty awesome since it is huge.

I don't like the zippers going backwards over the "brain", which makes them slightly harder to open, but I suspect this was a reasonable tradeoff considering its ergonomics.

So why the hate from other reviews online? Well the old Miura was a classic arcteryx pack for hiking/backpacking/major approaches. The old school Miura had alot of pockets and features. This new Miura isn't even close to the same product. To try to be helpful, people said to think of this new Miura like "a duffel bag" with straps. Although I wouldn't call it that it sort of is a good way to think of it. Like a super comfortable, burly bag that you stuff cragging gear into.

I wouldn't pay $230 for it but I got it at a significantly lower price, which was basically a steal. Get a sale.

A total miss from Arcteryx

I recently climbed for a weekend with a friend who had purchased the Miura 35 upon my recommendation of the Miura 30 (prior season's style). While the pack is certainly ligher addressing many concerns around weight for the original Miura, this pack has totally missed the mark. The drawbridge opening is much more difficult to use practically (like loading from the top) than the original and many of the very comfortable features of the orginal have been replaced by lighweight, less effective alternatives. This one was a miss by arcteryx.

Responded on

Could you elaborate more by listing out the "less effective alternatives"? What were the original features and what were they replaced with? I am curious. Been looking at this pack for a while.

Responded on

It seems like they have designed this pack more as a minimalist alpine pack than a good cragging or trad pack. The old style pack could be zipped up and would leave a nice opening at the top and you could load the pack as a top loader. This one is much more difficult to load that way. It also lacks the robust padding on the back and waist belts. While the prior packs back was really hot (leading to a wet back on even cooler days) it protected you from trad gear and other stuff in the bag. This one is less robust and doesn't carry as well. That said. I could see folks using this like the gentleman above as a summit bag (although large for that IMHO). I recently blew out the zipper in my old style Miura. While I was able to repair it, it has now been relegated to crag days. I've replaced it with the Creek 50 by BD. Its as robust, roughly the same weight, and has a full side length zipper. I can carry everything - a full rack, drill, brushes, bolt kit, and my rope in the bag and it still carries well (less hot) and is roughly the same weight.
