Whether you're loading it with your trad rack or carrying the gear for a long day of exploring canyons, the Mountain Hardwear Scrambler RT Outdry 40L Backpack is the technical pack you need to stay comfortable under the load. Its HardWave suspension conforms to the curve of your back as you scramble up scree fields and over boulders, and compression straps stabilize the load so it doesn't throw you off-balance. An OutDry membrane ensures that your gear will stay dry if you get caught in a shower, so you don't have to turn back or search for shelter. The large front pocket has drainage ports so you can stow wet gear or gear you need to access frequently. Padded shoulder and waist straps keep you comfortable over miles of trail, and can be adjusted based on layer changes for comfort in any season.

- Q & A
Nice but not for canyons
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
These MH Scrambler packs are nice and do seem waterproof but learned the hard way that even 400D nylon isn't tough enough for canyoneering. After 3-4 physicals canyons, it'll have holes and no longer get you outdry. Would imagine many alpine climbs (chimneys, etc.) would do same damage.
