So nice you might even enjoy carrying it to the base. Well, maybe not.
- RF-welded seams and Durathane fabric ensure maximum durability
- Bottom drain hole to let water leave if you get caught in the rain
- River-bag style closure and steel buckles ensure you never lose a thing

Does anyone have a picture of the harness...
Does anyone have a picture of the harness for this thing? How good is the shoulder strap padding and waist belt? I'm looking to carry a highling rig and that steel is HEAVY!
This haul-bag should have suffiecient padding. It is designed to carry porta-ledges, climbing racks. and should be able to handle a highlining rig
would this metolius el cap haul bag be...
would this metolius el cap haul bag be just use full for extended backpacking trips as well as climbing?
You could use it - but it really wouldn't be very comfortable. This is designed more to be used as a haul bag, pulling gear up a rock face with a rope and pulley system than to be used as a backpack.
Ditto of YeahBro's review above. One tip, if you have a long approach (aka halfdome), you may want to add a beefier hip belt(can buy generic hipbelts at REI)
Best Big Bag
Huge. Burly. Waterproof. If you're looking to do a grade VI route, do yourself a favor and invest in this giant. It's not the cheapest haul bag on the market, but the durability and design are well worth the extra cash. The little features like the dry bag closure, the interior gear loops, and the offset clip in loops just seal the deal.
