For going up the mountain, fast.

Stash your goods inside the Black Diamond Speed 22 Backpack and start attacking the ascent with this 1lb 5oz pack on your back. This top-loading pack is ultralight, frameless, and capable of carrying icetools, rope, a hydration bladder, and whatever else you can stuff inside. Sometimes utter simplicity and feathery-lightness are the call of the day.

  • Ultralight materials are incredibly resistant to abrasion, puncture, and trail or travel wear and tear
  • Speed design forgoes an internal frame for a thermo-molded backpanel that's comfortable and ultralight
  • Padded shoulder straps and webbing waist-belt can be quickly adjusted to fit a variety of shoulder and torso sizes
  • Top-loading design simplifies pack access and leaves the top pocket floating so you can use the hidden rope strap to secure a climbing rope underneath
  • Micro ice-tool PickPockets hold your icetools in the winter
  • Removable webbing waist-belt features buckles that can be clipped while wearing gloves

Will this pack carry a piolet? It looks as if the head of the axe would fit well behind the lower center buckle?

If you look towards the bottom of the back on the front side you can see a triangle yellow piece of nylon that sits above the black curvature, where they connect I guess. I have been putting the pick of the axes down there and then using the red draw strings above to cinch and hold the handles. I then take some of the adjustable webbing near the bottom to wrap up the pick of the axe just to make sure it wont go anywhere.

Awesome Alpine Pack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have mainly used this pack for ice and alpine rock climbs. It has been drug up several chimneys and put through the ringer. The pack is rather durable with some minor signs of wear on the lid and front of pack. Great for day outings. I am able to fit my rack, harness,puffy, water,food, two pairs of gloves, thermos, and all the little essentials with ease for ice climbing. Once climbing the compression straps make it small and non restricting .

Awesome day pack!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this pack, I take it up hiking with us, or just up the canyon to have a fire and make some dinner for the night. It is so comfortable to hike with in the shoulders and on my back, I could carry it all day.
I do use this pack more than just hiking though, I bring it here to work with me daily to bring in my lunch, snacks and anything else I may need! I love this pack, and the color is awesome too, a nice pop of yellow! (I find it does have a greenish tint to the yellow color too).
It does have the top lid pocket, the internal pack itself and there is a smaller/deep pocket in that internal pack as well, so lots of room!
This pack is highly recommended!

the best day/summit pack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I purchased a speed 40 for dayhike, it's way too big so I kept it as my backpacking bag. I then did more research and bought the speed 22 and I've used it in Utah, Idaho, Adirondacks, Wyoming... fantastic design and way better than REI's flash 18 which I used previously. Highly recommended.

Is the lid removable? Thx.
