Description

Nearly nothing.

At only 370 grams, the Black Diamond Shot Backpack makes the ideal choice for in-a-day routes, trail runs, or anything else that you barely need any gear for. Why would you lug around a pack that weighs more than everything in it? Black Diamond gave this minimalist bag a removable waist-belt and a small external pocket to hold snacks.
  • Minimalist design features nothing it doesn't need
  • Removable waist-belt lets you choose whether or not to use it
  • Small external pocket for snacks or topos

Descent day pack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Good materiel, seems quality built. After using for hiking wished it had more pockets or at least side pockets.

Overall, good day pack for short trips that don't require you to carry the entire world on your back.

How well would this backpack accommodate a belay jacket, headlamp, and water bottle?

Not really super big puffy, but it has a bit of bulk. From what you two have said I think it will work fine, thanks for the info!

Hey,

That depends on what kind of jacket you have and how compressible it is. But if you can make your jacket small enough to fit all your stuff into 18x10x7", you might actually have some room to spare.

Like Phil said, if you're packing a down jacket into this you'll have tons of room. I used the BD Magnum for a while and almost liked it more because you can compress the pack down even further.

Needs a bladder sleeve

Overall this is a durable pack for multipitch climbing and it is big enough for exactly what you need for an all-day effort. What it lacks is a bladder retention system (sleeve or clips). That is why I'd give it 4 stars instead of 5 - there is a loop in there that can be used to hook a bladder in place, but it's not really practical. Otherwise for the weight this pack outperforms most options due to a much more durable exterior material.

Nice pack

Like others have posted, this is a great little pack for carrying water, food, small camera, etc on multi-pitch climbs, without getting in your way when looking up or with harness.

Someone please explain to me how this is...

Someone please explain to me how this is hydration compatible. There are two holes at the top of the shoulder straps which i assume are for bladder hose, but this pack has no internal hydration sleeve or internal strap to hang the bladder. How do you keep it from moving around inside the pack? Bad design for a pack that is supposed to be hydration compatible.

Perfect pack for long multipitch climbs

used this on a couple of longer 6+ pitch climbs to carry water, camera, and food. Perfect in that I forgot I was wearing it.

Says its hydration compatible...any idea...

Says its hydration compatible...any idea if a 3L Camel/Deuter would work?

Best Answer Responded on

You can use a 3L bladder in this pack, although it will take up a bit of space. But for multi-pitch climbs where I just have water, some snacks, and a windshirt, it works perfectly.
