    Cavernous storage for cragging.

    Taking design cues from Big Wall haul bags, the Black Diamond Creek 35 Backpack effortlessly swallows all of your cragging gear within its top-loading design, complete with a full-length side zipper (medium/large only) for convenient access to internal items. This haul-style bag stands upright, lending itself to easy loading and unloading. Burly construction ensures longevity while the waterproof TPU coating keeps internal items nice and dry.

    The tuck-away rope strap secures your cord en route to your favorite crag, and the stowable rain hood even doubles as a helmet holder. Inside the pack, you'll find multiple organizer pockets for stashing away your phone, wallet, keys, and other small necessities. The zippered front-flap provides a handy space for storing your lunch, spare footwear, and extra layers, all without having to unload the pack's entire contents just to retrieve them. Other carry-friendly features include a thermoformed back panel, thickly padded shoulder straps, as well as a dual-density hip belt for evenly distributing heavy loads.

    psyched on the creek!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    BD's Creek packs are durable and convenient. The 20 is probably best used as an on route or as a gym bag - it is constructed pretty similarly to the 35 and the 50, but the larger sizes offer a more robust weight distribution system, as well as enough space to fit cragging essentials.
    I tend to like top loading backpacks best in most scenarios, but I think that they are genuinely the most convenient option for lugging gear around/cragging. Both the Creek 35 and 50 offer ample space for a rope, gear, shoes, water, snacks, and all the other nifty things that end up taking space.
    In terms of purpose, I think durability is this bag's raison d'etre. The Creek's haul bag style material is super tough, and I appreciate that the pack borrows a lot of features from BD's line of dedicated haul bags. The pack stands/balances easily, and, with a zipper running the length of the pack, loading/unloading gear is an efficient - and perhaps more organized - process.
    The Creek pack's straps/hip belt distribute weight really well, and I think that the suspension system that BD chose for the bag sets the Creek series apart from the rest of the haul bags that they produce.
    I haven't used the Creek pack for much more than cragging, and I am not sure that it is all that versatile - I think that it is pretty specialized. That said, the Creek pack is fantastic at what it does best.
