    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.

    One Tough Beast

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've tried a number of packs, but this has been my favorite cragging pack. I often have extra gear and end up carrying the rope, but the 35L has plenty room to keep it all inside, along with a first aid kit and my wife's gear. It's done fine being dragged along sandstone and tossed for rappels.

    Favorite Climbing Pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Hands down my favorite pack for climbing. The support and fit isn't as comfortable as my granite gear pack, but for climbing you really cant beat the creek bag. I love that the pack is made to stand up like a bucket, It makes loading and unloading gear so much easier. The draw string at the top is nice and the zipper down the side makes it easy to really open the bag up or get to the bottom of the pack without unloading everything. The built in rain fly is easy to use and the front pocket does a nice job storing all the small stuff. It works well (not great, but does the job) with hydration packs and the outside seems very durable. Would definitely buy this pack again if I was in the market.

    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.
