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.
