Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Super durable pack that easily fits all the gear you need for a day at the crag. The brain compartment is nice for storing smaller things. The buckle latch design is dependable and fast. The straps are comfy the waste strap is great for taking the weight off your shoulders. All in all this is an awesome pack, I love that everything I need can be thrown in (or strapped to the side) which allows me to just grab it and go, knowing I have all my gear.
