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 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.

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.
