Rated 5 out of 5 by from This pack is bomb proof. Purchased this pack about 8 months ago and since then I have put it through the wringer. I work as a glacier guide in a rainforest in AK and use this pack for my trips carrying a 30m rope, axe, harness, crampons, helmet, medkit, extra layers for clients, and food. I used it 6 or 7 days a week for the entire summer and it's barely worn at all. I've seen packs worn through in a month with this job. Now that summers over I use it as my touring pack and it easily fits all I need for an overnight tour into the backcountry. I have one gripe and it's the lack of a good way to carry a Nalgene on the outside of this pack. It has camel back adaptability, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alpine and climbing pack! I bought my second Speed pack a few weeks ago and have taken it ice climbing and rock cragging so far. I love the quick set up for ice tools, the adjustable top or brain, and the set up for crampons on the outside of the pack. It is very light and easy to wear when climbing. However, my first Speed pack only lasted 4 years and the new one seems to have even more fragile (but light weight) fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect climbing essential Purchased initially for a 4 day multi pitch rock climbing trip in the Wilder Kaiser, Austria. Perfect size, intuitive strapping + pocketing providing more than ample support + ease of access. Next use will be in Yosemite for another 3/4 day multi pitch rock trip,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ascent Series Packs I`m literally in love with the Speed packs I use the Speed 40 for an ultra-lightweight 2 days and one night in the mountains and that include everything I need for the weekend. It`s Magic !!! Simplicity, Confort and efficiency the best pack I ever had

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight, sturdy pack perfect for alpine The Speed 40 came highly recommended to me by a few friends, and I'm happy with my choice. However, the frame and straps are pretty sturdy and don't seem to give even after 100+ hours of use. The straps and hip belt aren't very forgiving for women's figures, either. The features, weight, and durable material of this pack all hit the mark for me - but I wouldn't recommend this product to curvier women or women looking for a female-friendly design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pack with versatile applications I bought this pack for crag days and short alpine trips. I recently used it on a 3 night ultra-light slot canyon outing in Utah. I removed the framesheet and bivy pad, lid, and extra straps and got the pack weight down to just under 2lbs! (1.14oz). The sleek, no frills pack profile helped me squeeze through tight spots in the canyon and the fabric held up without be too heavy. At night I was able to use the empty pack as a torso sleeping pad. When I got home I loaded it down and began preparing for a 14eer trip. Super happy with this pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really happy with this pack I took this pack on a 7 mile snowshoe trip in Yellowstone as well as a day trip to Hyalite Canyon in Montana to ice climb. Overall, it is a great pack for mountaineering or ice climbing as it is light, simple, and able to be stripped down to its bare essentials. It carried the ice axes and crampons well on the outside and I was easily able to fit all my stuff for the day with room to spare. It could probably support a 2-3 day mountaineering objective, but not much more than that. I love that the top compartment detatches completely! I would highly recommend the pack for ice climbing, mountaineering, or anything else in the alpine environment.
