Love this backpack!

I've put it through the wringer

I have been using this for when I bike. It is a perfect size to carry anything I need when I bike to work or school. It is slim and sleek and I love the red color!


Sick Mulitpitch pack!

This pack is awesome! I took it to City of Rocks to wear while on a multipitch climb, it held much more than I thought and was still really comfortable! I was on the wall and climbing with it for about 3 hours as well as 2 rappels and I forgot it was there a couple times. It did not move while climbing! I am 5'1 and 110lbs and this pack at first I thought was not going to fit me well but after I got some weight in there it fit pretty good. It is one size so it is made to fit a lot of different body types which is nice because then you and your climbing partner can trade off carrying it! We carried our normal shoes, snacks and water in the pack and it was awesome! My climbing partner is 5'10 and 160lbs and this is what he had to say about the pack: "The pack was so comfortable, I hardly knew it was there. Even though it was full of stuff, it felt weightless"!!!

Waterproof, Bombproof Multi-pitch Pack

I've put it through the wringer

This deceivingly spacious and easy-to access climbing bag is changing the game of what you need when you're on the wall all day. The waterproof zippers and abrasion resistant fabric are just a few of the key features. - Main pocket wraps 60% around the face of the pack so you can grab a snack or rain jacket in a pinch while hanging off pitch 8. - Smaller pocket in the front also has internal access to the main pocket and it's felted (to reduce scratching on your cellphone screen) - Sternum strap and waist belt that's burly for a wall-bag. It's so nice to finally find a big wall climbing bag that is waterproof and burly enough to be dragged against an off width pitch without getting holes in it!
