The Patagonia Ascensionist 35L Pack is a light pack for quick one to two day trips up the mountain. The Ascensionist is durable and allows for overstuffing while still maintaining a streamlined, asymmetrical profile for climbing. Polyurethane coating on all fabrics provides additional weather resistance for gear you'd prefer to keep dry. Strap your skis in an A-frame with the side straps or use them to compress a lighter load. The tool pocket protects and secures ice axes to the outside while plenty of daisy chains provide additional lash points for more gear. The frame sheet, hipbelt pads and hipbelt are all removable, depending on your load and weight preferences. Just making speedy mountain ascents easier.

Light, versatile, great pricing.This thing rules my face. Super light, I've both overstuffed it and packed very light. No issues either way. Love the light framing. Extremely simple to remove and install. Can remove both hip belt and frame to go even lighter. Cinch closure system super easy. Comfortable carry. Only gripe is there needs to be somewhere for water. No outside pockets capable of carrying a nalgene. I've been putting a 2L bag in the pocket between the two lids and running a hose out attached to shoulder strap. Worked well so far. Not sure what I'll do about water when I have to cover it with a rain cover. Overall ridiculous good value on this pack. I have the 35L and maybe the best $150 I've dropped on gear.

Perfect climbing pack!Just what I was looking for in a new climbing pack. Lots of room for size adjustment, the tool slots on the front were perfect for my axes on a recent ice climbing trip, and I'm beyond impressed with how lightweight & comfortable it is (even with the frame still in)! The low profile/non-cumbersome straps are great, and I love the bold red color. Some reviews complained for lack of pockets, but I prefer my climbing packs to be on the more minimal side; the more low-profile - with no unnecessary pockets to go fishing through/just adding weight - the better, and this surely fits the bill!

Name says it all!!!I have had this pack about two weeks and it has been love at first sight!! I purchased the 25L for my wife and the 35L for myself. I was amazed at the holding capacity the first time I packed it. Able to hold harness, rope, nuts, cams, shoes helmet, axe and still closed top with room to spare. I plan on using these packs on Rainier this summer from base to summit! Great pack with great price!!! You will definitely not be disappointed!!!!

This backpack will rock your socks. Then you can stuff every pair of sock you own into it and more!I purchased this backpack for two reasons: ,,1. I bike to school and my other packpack was way too small to carry all my junk. Here is what I put in there every day: Dell laptop (ancient and giant), Lunch (I eat a lot of food), Stanley thermos (for copious amounts of coffee), shower town (because I get stanky at the gym), toiletry items, change of clothes for school, change of clothes for yoga, headlamp, gloves, various pencils and pens. If you're not impressed by this 35L Backpack before, you should be now! ,,2. I want to eventually do some more serious ski mountaineering. This pack has ropeholding, ice tool holding, ski tipi-ing (its a word), and carabiner clipping capacities. It can carry wayyy more stuff (ie. food/layers) than my Avalung backpack. Also, its very lightweight and sits nicely on the shoulders/back. Won't give you aches and pains or throw off your balance. ,,This backpack is all-around awesome from the mountain to the classroom.
