Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing, old model was better My old speed pack was great. Very comfortable until 12 kg load, excellent weight transfer to the hips and close to the body. To my disappointment the new model does not have the top stabilisation straps / load lifters that are essential for me to keep the backpack close enough to my body and lift the weight from my shoulders.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great fit, questionable quality This pack only made it through a light weekend before all the zipper pulls broke and seams began to come apart. The fit is great, but I don't trust it for anything besides quick grocery trips now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Used on an easy overnight hike just to test out. Two thumbs up so far. Can't wait to get it out on some climbs soon. The compression straps are thin but long which is great. Definitely not over done and nothing that is not needed is not on this pack.

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
