Love this pack! I have used it extensively for the past year for trad and ice climbing. Very comfortable to approach and climb in. The swing belt system takes a while to get used to but is really comfortable. Pack loads nicely and is very durable. I can get a full rack (trad or ice) plus a day or food and bottles as well as a belay jacket and shell inside. Rope and helmet strap on nicely. Love the no lid feature! If you want a pack to climb in this is a great choice.
My son introduced me to Moosejaw and I love shopping here! I ordered this pack for my 21 year old son as a gift. He loved the pack, but unfortunately it was too close in size to a pack that he already had. I called my "buddies" at Moosejaw and they directed me to a larger pack. Moosejaw made my holidays this year. It had been a very tough year, but the whimsical nature and terrific customer service at Moosejaw, made my holidays so much brighter. I wish that I could give you more insight on the pack, but I can only say that if you don't like it, I'm sure the great folks at Moosejaw will help you out. Thank you guys for making my holiday season just a little brighter!
i use this pack for hauling my climbing equipment. its a simple pack, however has just enough features to make everything work perfectly. the crampon pocket is awesome, and the small space on top of the lid is perfect for things like keys or snacks.
