Why We Like The Black Diamond Distance 15L Backpack

Made for fast and light mountain missions, Black Diamond's Distance 15 Backpack is a hybrid pack that combines an alpine-worthy daypack with shoulder straps similar to running vests. We love that the shoulder harness utilizes Black Diamond's stitch-less Edge Taping Technology to eliminate chafing, while the ventilating back panel keeps our back cooler and our load close to body for scrambling and running technical ridgelines. Plus, external gear attachments and easily accessible stretch pockets keep our ice tools, trekking poles, devices, and snacks at hand.

Almost Perfect Pack

I bought this pack to go do a multistage race in Nepal called the Manaslu Stage Race. I needed something that could carry a bit more for being in high altitude and also knowing I would be waiting for my overnight bag to show up via the mules. The bag was the perfect size to carry the extra gear I needed to make sure I would be warm enough and all of the emergency gear I needed. I was able to carry a lightweight down jacket, thermals with fleece, emergency gear and spikes/poles. Plus, I loved that the top strap was adjustable so I could expand it if needed. It fit me perfectly and was comfortable to carry with no issues of it rubbing anywhere. My only complaint is the pockets on the vest. They are too small to fit water bottles. Very difficult to get them in and out, which is quite the pain. If they would fix this issue on the Distance Pack and the Beta 30 Fastback I would be recommending them to everyone. I just can't get past the hassle of the water bottles and I tried different sizes.

Awesome Adventure Day Pack

I bought this on a 4-day trek in Patagonia for quick and light out-and-backs. Tons of storage in front pockets for essentials (bars, sunscreen, sunnies, phone) and a section inside for a 2.5L water bladder. There is also a zipper pocket inside for wallet/keys/passport, etc. Trekking poles fit in side pockets. It's super lightweight and can pack down small. I'm 5'3", 140 lbs with a short torso (my 40L pack is XS) and broad shoulders. I ordered a Medium and it fit like a hug. If you have a petite frame, I'd recommend a small.

I bought this for a 4-day trek in Patagonia for quick and light out-and-backs, so needed all the layers/rain gear. I'm super happy with this pack. Tons of storage in front pockets for quick-grab essentials (bars, sunscreen, sunnies, phone) and a section inside for a 2.5L water bladder. There is also a zipper pocket inside for wallet/keys/cash/passport, etc. Trekking poles fit well in side pockets. It's super lightweight and can pack down small. I'm 5'3", 140 lbs with a short torso (my 40L pack is XS) and broad shoulders. I ordered a Medium and it fit like a hug. If you have a petite frame and/or don't plan to layer up a bunch, I'd recommend a small.

Sizing is off?

I ordered a medium based on the size chart, but it didn’t fit. Such a cool pack though! I’m wish I could find it locally to try on the small.

Amazing!

The fit is great (had to get a size smaller than recommended by the size guide though) and lots of storage. Looking forward to using it on lots of big adventures!

Love

I got my partner this bag last year and I was always stealing it from him… had to get my own. So great for kind day traverses, raveling, etc
