Here's what others have to say...

does the lack of side compression straps...

does the lack of side compression straps make the bag uncomfortably "floppy" when not fully loaded?

Best Answer


I don't know this pack personally, but it stands to reason that it would be typically "floppy" when not fully loaded. For a few bucks more, if you're looking for something similar from Sierra Designs, check out the Ministry 40. Hope this helps.

That's what I'm thinking but there's that strap that runs across the front of the pack.

The ministry is a good alternative, only no zippers or side access right?

No it's a top-loader with no zippered access on the front. The Prophecy doesn't have the side compression straps, but it does have internal gear loops. It seems like the pack might be a little "floppy", but that everything should stay put pretty much, and I could definitely see the zipper system that lets you open up from the front to get at your gear being handy...just no comp straps, which is kind of a bummer. That strap across the front is for skis, I guess maybe a board, or something like an axe, etc.

The back panel is stiff enough that it should not be an issue if you are packing minimal gear.


The Climbing Bag

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I like having a dedicated climbing bag. The three way zipper allows easy access to the main compartment for easy racking and un-racking of gear. There are two main gear loops, each with three seperate loops to keep things organized. This is a pretty heavy duty bag, durable.

Does this have internal gear loops?

Does this have internal gear loops?

It has two internal loops. You can see in the "packed" picture above that it has some red webbing sewn into the back panel - that is the top of the gear loop. There is one on each side.
