Patagonia Keeps It Simple
- I've put it through the wringer
- Size Bought:
- 5' 11"
I am VERY happy with my Patagonia 32L Descentionist bag. I own a 32L BCA Float bag that was much too heavy and clunky for spring days and quick low angle tours where I don't need an airbag. This Descentionist is MUCH lighter than that bag, fits more comfortably, has much more room, and is all-around more simple, and I can appreciate all of those things. I like the roll-top of the bag, as I can throw so much stuff in and it seems like a black hole. I also appreciate the designated pocket in front for my safety gear. Some bags make tiny little safety pockets for tiny little shovels, which I'm sure saves weight and makes you look cool in your tight clothes while you blast to the top of a mountain, but this bag isn't for that crowd. The safety pocket on the Desentionist has plenty of room for a BIG shovel, probe, first aid, spare binding parts, and more, without taking away from the vast amounts of room from the main bag. I also appreciate the hip belt pockets for quick access, the side entry for easy access to all the random stuff I brought along on my tour, the clips on the side of the bag for strapping poles to on the descent, and the included helmet carrying stap. Plus the purple color is sick. All in all, I'm very impressed with this bag, and I know I'll be filling it with more than I need to bring for years to come.
