Perfect pack for Multipitch or Class
This thing is wonderful, I bought it for multipitch climbing, but have ended up using it all the time. It is made of a pretty durable ripstop nylon fabric, has a convenient double zipper opening, and is just the right size. For the record, those weird little slits on the bottom of the pack are for holding a blinking safety light.
+Fits a 3L platypus, bars, small, camera, a layer, headlamp, gauze+tape, cell phone, and keys - or a 13" laptop, writing pad, and water bottle.
+Hipbelt adjusts from sides, not at bellybutton, so no dangling straps.
+Dual access zipper opening is convenient and keeps gear from falling out at belays
+Lightly padded mesh backpanel is comfortable and cool
+Sternum strap adjusts seamlessly, and has a whistle in the buckle
+Internal pocket has key clip and keeps important things from being buried
+Inner sleeve and routing ports make it hydration compatible
-A little bit heavy and expensive for the volume
-Hipbelt will come undone unless you double back the buckles
I'd recommend this to anyone.
