What are the dimensions? Is it carry on sized?
It'll be snug, but it'll probably fit.
The dimensions for this packpack are 24 x 13 x 12 inches. I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Typically most airlines put the carry-on size at 45 liner inches as the maximum. If you picked this bag up before it sold out I recommend not filling it up all the way so as to get away with this being 49 liner inches.
Works well as a hiking pack as well.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought this because I needed a pack that would fit all of my sport climbing gear and also work as a hiking/travel pack. This pack does pretty good! I was going to hold out for the Hueco 35 which has a rope strap and deeper bottle pockets but i didn't want to wait so I went with this one and saved $30. It is fairly comfortable and support a fair amount of weight. Hydration pouch is nice! Has plenty of pockets to separate all of my stuff. I am big on organization and this pack is great for that! the interior of the pack has a sleeve on each side that is about the size of a 1.5L Nalgene bottle. I use it for compressing layers and holding stuff-sacks full of whatever. Seems to be fairly sturdy so far. I have put about 45 miles and 6,000 feet on it and no problems! Also. the duffel handle is awesome! If you can find a way to holster your rope from the gear loops atop or on the back, it will hold a lot of gear on the inside!
I can't tell from the photos how one...
I can't tell from the photos how one attaches ice axes to this pack. I can see the bottom loops, but I can't see where they attach at the top. Anyone have some insight?
That seems about right to me Angus..
FWIW - neither of those loops are elastic. They're stitched webbing.
The side pockets can hold a 32oz Nalgene along with another bottle.
