I've had this bag for the past six months. I've used it nearly everyday. I have been changing the loadout for daily trips to the gym, climbing gym, ice walls and now the crag. It handles around 30 lbs comfortably. The suspension is amazing. While scrambling up the side entrances to top roping sections the bag really allows you to move well as the waist-belt rotates. The shoulders also allow independent movement as they have a single steel cable that connects them through the bottom of the pack. You have to exaggerate your movements to feel it in store but when you're out you'll move freely; like an ice dancer minus the tights and makeup. Maybe. The ice specific carry options are great, I paired Petzl Caritools since I like the way they attach better than the BD.

I've had this bag for the past six months. I've used it nearly everyday. I have been changing the loadout for daily trips to the gym, climbing gym, ice walls and now the crag. It handles around 30 lbs comfortably. The suspension is amazing. While scrambling up the side entrances to top roping sections the bag really allows you to move well as the waist-belt unlocks to rotate. The U shaped shoulder harness allows each shoulder to raise and lower without offsetting the bags center of gravity. You have to exaggerate the movement to feel it in store but when it is in actual use you just feel smoother. That was the ultimate testament for me; when I use this bag I feel like I move smoother with less effort. I've had it on a couple ice climbing trips and it racks gear well. The outside axe clippers work great and the crampon bikini helps reduce weight, I don't carry a crampon case, and protect the rest of the gear. I added petzl caritools to the waist and carry water/gloves etc.
