Short list of what I fit into this bag
...how has no one bought these?
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Seriously, how has more people not bought this bag? It has worked out for me super well, and its holds a surprising amount despite it only being 32 liters. Right now I am just using it to carry my climbing gear around, but I want to use it for ski touring come winter time.
The bag is a standard top loader, which has the pull draw-string underneath the top compartment. While this can be a little annoying when trying to get gear at the bottom of the pack, this is nothing surprising.
The ski carry straps on the side of the bag are super secure, and even carrying a ski without bindings, I never felt they were gonna slip or anything. Also, those sides where you carry your skis are use a different strong material, so the bindings don't jack up the backpack!
Also awesome feature: the gear loops on the waist band. While they are not load rated (like, don't hang from them, please) they are super useful for mountaineering, and ski-mo situations.
Another thing I like: The inside of the top compartment. There is a mesh part where you can stick your wet gloves, which I dig! Definitely good for drying them out.
Now, the cons. Just like Mr. Anonymous said, this bag is now 1 lb 12 oz. I had some people around the office test the weight, and they agree it is more like 3 lbs, or at least 2 toy poodles.
Overall, I like this pack. Its pretty cheap for what you are getting, the shoulder straps are relatively comfortable, and the pack is bigger than I expected. If you are looking to get a good mountaineering or ski-mo/ AT pack, this one is worth a look!
The weight specified on the tag shipped with this Eiger 32 indicates 1# 12OZ.
That is not correct. The weight is actually 3 pounds.
