Pretty much as others have outlined below, the pack has a few shortcomings. The mini pockets won't fully secure your gear and the front compartment uses the main compartment space so when the main compartment is full, there's no room left in the front compartment. Also the vertical zip design for the front compartment access results in wasted space at the top of the front compartment.It's a bit small for a serious day-pack, and the photo here is a bit deceptive because it makes the pack look a bit bigger than it actually is. I think the BD Dart (which is 30L) would be a better choice unless you're specifically after a smaller day-pack. Construction and colour seem to be quite good though so I can't fault it for that. And the design is nice and clean so it shouldn't snag on things too readily.

These are quite nice to climb with for their edging and stickiness.

My foot shape has a high arch, is not too wide or narrow, and my 2nd toe is a bit longer than my big toe. So, these shoes are not really well suited to the foot shape that I have, as they have a lot of saggy empty space in the arch and inside foot area, and the toes are scrunched up a little too much for my liking.

I've only climbed in these a few times, so hopefully they will mold a bit better to my feet with use. The materials and construction should allow that to happen.

BTW, the laces are really long so you will end up with lots of tail on the knots. There's enough lace to wrap around the entire mid-foot if you like which can help with the saggy arch, but it means that the laces are more prone to getting damaged.
