Black Diamond Pipe Dream 45L Backpack


Why We Like The Pipe Dream 45L Backpack

Black Diamond named the Pipe Dream 45L Backpack after Maple Canyon's popular climbing area, and it's perfect for chilling out between burns on your favorite climbing projects. The pack has plenty of space for your climbing gear and fuel so you can stay at the crag all day, and the three-point closure system helps the Pipe Dream open like a crash pad, giving you and your gear a clean space to relax between routes. The lid is removable when you're hiking to reduce snags, and there are multiple pockets for smaller valuables. Internal gear loops prevent your draws from tumbling out on the approach. Weighing in at four pounds, the pack's beefy suspension system easily manages the load so you can relax in crag-side comfort.

This Bag Was Made for Sitting!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have only had the pleasure of using this bag a few times, but I felt that was enough for a review. I feel it is the perfect pack for a wide array of people, not just if you're sending hard projects and need somewhere to chill out for 30-45 min in-between burns. My personal favorite alternative use is the dog bed, it provides a nice soft spot for your dog to hang out rather then running around distracting you and other climbers. When it comes to loading the pack I use it like a rope bag with built in tarp. Roll it up, cinch it down, and go! If you are going to put your rope in it, I find it best to leave the rope bag at home and flake the rope onto the pack before rolling it up. Bring along a rope-tarp (Item # TRG000E) to keep my rope nice and clean, and allowing you to use the bag as it was intended, to chill. I highly recommend this pack for anyone looking for a new sport climbing pack!
