Black DiamondBbee 11L Backpack

Just the essentials.

Black Diamond's Bbee Backpack readies you for day-long runs and ridgeline scrambles with a minimalist design that carries just the necessities. This small pack stores your extra layers and a small lunch while maintaining a comfortable feel thanks to its OpenAir back panel and contoured shoulder straps, which work with the fixed webbing belt to ensure a secure fit. The Bbee is hydration-compatible (it accommodates your own reservoir) and Black Diamond equipped it with an internal stash pocket for valuables and a slot for a bike light for your mid-week cycle commute.

Simple & compact – just what I wanted

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm using this pack for running neighborhood errands on foot. The pack is simple, light weight, and not bulky. It's just right for a stack of library books or a bunch of groceries, plus wallet, mittens, and hat. The interior zippered pocket is near the top, so it's nicely accessible for key storage. The other interior pocket is open along the top for fitting a magazine or laptop.

purchase of a second one

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a replacement for the same product, a Black Diamond Bbee I bought a few years ago. I bought this specifically for running. I wanted a stable pack that does little to distract while on the road or trail. Sometimes mid-run, I go barefoot, and the pack needed to securely accomodate a pair of size 11 mens runners. It meets all of these needs better than other packs I have tried before and since, thus the reorder. I had to replace my first Bbee because I handwashed and rinsed it, then left it to dry outside on a line. All of the zippers turned rusty blue and froze solid. I do not know what to have done differently, but lesson learned.

Awesome day pack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This pack is the perfect day pack for a long trail run or mountain bike ride. I've used it for both and am very happy. It's large enough to fit both a Cameback and Nalgene, plus a few extra layers, food, and some gear. Great for the summer when you need extra water, or for cooler temps when you need extra layers. I wore it in light rain recently and it kept my gear dry. The large back pouch is good for a Camelback and the small one for keys, phone, etc. I found it comfortable to wear (over long sleeves) and it didn't bounce or bother me. Very light weight as well. I'm excited to use this on long rides and winter trail runs. Also, love the red/orange color!


    Awesome backpack but understand it is an 11L. So it only packs the essentials.

    great small pack

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a great small pack. The minimal hip belt is removable. the back panel is a soft foam that is perforated so that it can be rolled fairly small but still adds structure and ventilation. Great for a short hike where you need water, a light rain jacket and a snack.

    I dig it

      I got this bag for multi pitch climbing where a walk off is included. It's great for putting shoes and a water in while climbing or just for day hikes where you don't need to lug too much and want to stay light and cool. It fits well and the straps are comfy for the light loads going in

      Perfect for short hikes

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      Purchased this pack for my father, he needed something smaller than what he had before. The size and the added benefit of the bladder made it a wining gift.
