Adequate for the Job
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Bought this as an on-route pack. It's adequate on the wall and it is killer as a well-packed crag bag. Perhaps it is a sisyphean task to find a climbing pack that doesn't bonk the back of your head when you lead. That being said, I like the sleek and simple design and the waist belt gear loops is a nice feature.
This is a good on-route pack; if the follower carries it, it's a great on-route pack.
I wrote this review earlier today. This evening, one of the rope holster buckles broke when I tightened it before hiking into the crag. Bummer.
