The Arcteryx Nozone 55 Backpack is a climbing pack that will take you from the summit to the campsite with ease. The large, webbing pull-tabs allows for quick and easy, glove-friendly access. The internal frame sheet is basically as lightweight as you can get, given the size (up 57 liters) and durability of this pack. I seriously have a crush on this internal frame sheet, you guys. Check out the video to your left for more info.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Good the Bad and the Ugly.. My previous pack was a Canadian made Arcteryx Needle 55 and I absolutely loved it. One fateful night it was stolen from my van so I decided to replace it with the closest model currently available- enter the Nozone 55. While I appreciate the light weight and solid construction of this pack, certain features or lack thereof, make me miss my old Needle dearly.. The first thing I noticed about this pack was it's minimal feel- while it does indeed shave the ounces, it doesn't seem very substantial- like a sausage casing with a couple of shoulder straps and enough extra webbing to choke a horse.. The substantial hipbelt that accompanies most 55 liter packs has been replaced by a flaccid strip of 2" webbing with a couple 'hip pads' that slide freely back and forth- This is probably my biggest issue with this pack. On long hikes with heavy loads it seems nearly impossible to keep them adjusted where they need to be. I can see where this might be a desirable feature for alpine style ascents but I feel like some type of velcro anchoring system would make a world of difference functionally- I finally just sewed the hip pads in place so they would quit sliding around and it was an immense improvement.. My other gripe with this pack is the single lid pocket- again, it spares all the weight of an extra zipper (yikes) but jumbles all your small items together and forces me to carry separate zippered pouches inside the lid- negating any sort of weight saved on the pack.. There is a tiny mesh pocket on one side (why not two?) that's works ok for strapping tent poles to the side or holding one crushed beer can but it's really too small for much else.. Features I do like about this pack- You can really load it up and down, with a detachable, adjustable lid that adapts well to loads that extend past the normal top of the pack into the collar, and ample compression straps that can bind extra gear to the sides of the pack.. The construction itself seems on par with Arcteryx's standards despite being produced in The Phillipines- I've owned this pack for three years now and it's definitely made to withstand the abrasive qualities of granite and sandstone- It would be nice to see a bit more reinforcement on the bottom but that's more of a worry than an issue for now.. I'll also mention that for a while this pack never seemed to fit my back as good as I'd like- Finally I pulled out the aluminum frame stays and shaped them to fit the contour of my back and it made a great deal of difference in the overall functionality of the suspension. The foam on the shoulder straps, hip pads, and lumbar pad is top notch and seems to allow for a thinner shoulder strap without sacrificing comfort. All in all, this is a good pack with a few aggravations that can mitigated with a needle and thread and a couple zipper pouches. I've taken it climbing, camping and trekking from the high peaks of Colorado to the sultry sandstone of the Red River Gorge- and while I still miss my old Needle 55, the nozone is a decent runner up. I get the feeling that Arcteryx tried to shave a bit too much of this pack, but for almost all intents and purposes it is still a tough and solid performer..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sexy, expensive bag This bag seems to be built like a tank. I have not done too many hardcore adventures with this bag on but it looks dope. The times I have used it hiking it is very comfortable and it makes me forget what I am hauling. ,,The negatives are few but there. Too many pieces of webbing that don’t really tuck away. I would have liked an added pocket somewhere so that certain items could be segregated in their own space. Gear in the pocket on the flap gets jumbled around quickly.,,Overall the pack is (probably) more expensive than it should be. But, you already knew that and for whatever reason you don’t seem to mind. You will be the envy of the people on the trail (for those who notice and care). ,,
