The low-volume Grivel Mago Bag is specifically designed to meet the needs of climbers who require unrestricted movement but need to stow snacks, water, and approach shoes during the ascent. The tapered profile and single-strap design prevent the pack from interfering with your harness or chalk bag and allow you to easily access the pack with one hand while you're climbing.
- Single shoulder strap and minimalist waist-belt keeps the pack centered on your back and allows unrestricted climbing movements
- Padded back panel provides all-day comfort
- Shoulder strap design allows the pack to be pulled to the front of your body and accessed with one hand, leaving the other hand free to grab the rock
- Low-volume 12 liter pack is perfect for descent shoes, water, snacks, keys, or a rain jacket
- Tapered design prevents the pack from interfering with a chalk bag or harness
- Cell phone pocket on the shoulder strap keeps your phone safe and accessible

Just right for a multi-pitch trad climb
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've been climbing with the 14L version of this pack for several months now. It's so comfortable I almost don't know I'm wearing it. It fits a 1L collapsible water bottle, approach shoes, down vest, wind shirt, car keys, hat, snacks, camera and route description. The front "cell phone" pocket is too small for a cell phone, but just right for a two-way radio. I also like that you can detach the shoulder strap and the cross body strap to make it easy to get on and off.
I knocked a star off because I think it would be more functional if it had just one main pouch instead of two.
This pack is cool but not big enough for approach shoes and water - so if you're going to clip approach shoes to your harness and only need a water bottle (this won't fit a 3L bladder), this would be a great option. For me though, it was just too small to be useful.
