Here's what others have to say...

How waterproof is this pack? I'm looking for a simple lightweight pack for on resort skiing that I could also use for short day hikes, this looks like it could be it but how will it fare in the snow or light rain?

Responded on

I don't have this pack, but reading the specs leads me to believe that it is minimally water resistant. So, in a light snow (with occasional brushing off) it would probably be fine... but standing snow or a light drizzle would probably leak through fast.

I make this judgment based on the material and the declared weight--which indicates that not a lot of coatings have been applied. Also, the zippers are totally gonna leak.

Best Pack Ever

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is the ideal pack for minimalist day hikes and moving fast. It's very simple, lightweight, and has the perfect space for a few extra layers, food, and a reservoir. It's too bouncy for running but otherwise ideal. One of my friends had this pack tear a little at the zipper after years of overstuffing with books and BD shipped him a new one right away, they really stand by their products.

Good pack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I really like this pack. Fits all my junk for a 10-mile day in the woods: rain coat, bladder, Nalgene, two water bottles (one for each dog), food, dog food, camera, map, bear spray, and an extra t-shirt. It's light, durable, and pretty comfortable. I love the waistbelt cinch straps on the sides instead of across the belly. Why doesn't every company do this? One small complaint: I know the pack is small, but I wish it had cinch straps for the shoulders.

Opinion: I feel like if you need a pack with more than 13 liters for a 10-mile, summer day then you're overpacking.

ascent pack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

my wife and I have been using this as our ascent pack for a few years now and it is perfect. It doesn't get in your way when climbing and it holds everything. I like that there are no external straps to get tangle up or snag on gear. this thing has been scrapped through chimneys and slot canyons and still looks new.

I'm looking for a summit or multi-pitch pack that i can stuff into my larger gear pack. Does this pack have internal stays that would prevent me from folding or rolling it up and stuffing it into a larger pack? Thanks

Responded on

This would work well for that as there is no internal structure or stays to it.

good pack

This pack seems like it's going to perfect for runs, little hikes, or biking through town. I got the Daiquiri color and it was a little greener than expected. Other than, good pack.

I have a small Black Diamond Pack that I...

I have a small Black Diamond Pack that I use for biking. I am looking to replace this pack. I don't know the name of the pack but the Bbee seems closest to it. My current pack can store a 3 L camelback bladder and has a zippered pocket on the inside. The only markings on it are L12. Does anyone know if the Bbee is the closest current model to this pack?

Responded on

I would guess L12 might be 12 liters, and this one is 11.3, so I'd say this one is pretty darn close.

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.
