My favourite crag pack so far!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I absolutely love this pack. It's served me well through ADK approachs and weekends at the Gunks. The zippered opening on the back of it is a game changer. It's sturdy, it's got enough bells, whistles, and pockets that are useful but not so many as to be a problem finding what you need.
Weight distribution is a sinch, ropes fit over the top perfectly. And its easy to life off the ground and shoulder.
My only gripe is the hydration pouch is so low in the pack that a standard length hose forces me to turn to my left and back to drink from. I use a HydraPak Force 2 liter.
