    Don't take it for granite.

    Hiking the steep flanks of Pyramid Peak has been on your bucket list for a long time, and Klattermusen's Grip Backpack is up to the challenge. The Grip's Carry on Bone weight dispersal system helps reduce blister points on your hips and shoulders, so your epidermis won't throw a tantrum halfway up the 5,000-foot schlep. But in case you sprain an ankle or lose track of time, the Grip's 2440 cubic inch capacity is enough to stuff a bivy sack and a stove in there—just don't forget to bring snacks.

    superb carrying system

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have this pack and recently completed a 7 day rain-sodden camp with it. You can do a lot more than one night with 40l if you pack well.

    This is a more conventional pack than many of Klattermusen's previous efforts- they've even given us a water bottle pouch! - and the price is lower as well.

    It's basically just a big sack, so if you like lots of bells and whistles this not for you. It's also right in the middle of a stripped down Alpine pack and a more accessorized hiking pack, so ideal for everything in my view.

    Plus marks

    -The construction is deceptively sturdy: I put a huge load in and on mine with no struggle at all, no strained seams; very good fittings, especially the waist clip

    -Excellent FULLY CUSTOMISABLE suspension system - Klattermusen have come up with a simple lightweight but absolutely practical suspension system. The three way adjustment and special moulding of the hip belt are really wonderful.

    - The shoulder straps are very wide and well shaped - i NEVER felt the need to hook my thumbs under and remove the strain

    - tough fabric, especially the generous kevlar reinforcement on the bottom

    -Has pretty much everything you actually need in a rucksack

    Minus points

    - The new range is less waterproof than previous products from the brand, so you will need a liner or rain cover. However, the fabric is apparently stronger and certainly stretchier than previously.

    - Lacks the tent frame on the top of previous models; this is compensated by having the straps on the side which are capable of holding quite large tents

    - it's just a big sack! No side or bottom access; no second chamber for wet stuff

    So it's not perfect and gets 4 stars because of it. However, i like it better than anything else I've tried and have just ordered its 60l big brother.
