Great compact pack for rock and summit climbs
This pack was an excellent upgrade for me. For the past 20 years I've been (happily) using a simple and rugged MEC pack for hauling my climbing gear to the crag. This BD Demon pack holds slightly more but feels like I'm carrying about 1/3rd less weight! (I usually carry about 30 lbs of gear). This pack's design is extremely well thought out - easy access, great design for strapping on a rope, simple streamline shape, durable fabric, great suspension, great size for day use. I just hope it lasts me another 20 years.....I don't see why it won't.
