Additional Information

This versatile backpack is built to go light on routes from Fitz Roy to Chamonix, but willingly expands when you need to overstuff.

Designed for one- to two-day speedball ascents in places like Chamonix and Patagonia, this streamlined yet highly versatile climbing backpack has everything you need, but absolutely nothing more. It features an integrated, asymmetrical spindrift collar that opens wide and closes in a single motion for fast packing. A secondary collar protects your gear from ugly weather, allows serious overstuffing and holds gear securely when the pack is hanging at belays. The removable frame sheet, made from a lightweight aluminum rod and covered with mesh, provides support for weighted loads and moves with you as you bend and flex. Ergonomic shoulder straps (with load lifters) match your torso’s contours for 24-hour comfort, and the hip belt has removable pads for simplicity. Four rows of exterior daisy chains provide lashing options for a rope, helmet and pad; ice tools attach via an integrated buckle and tool pocket. Other details include compression straps to carry skis and cinch down loads, an asymmetric profile for elbow clearance and a zippered pocket on the lid for quick access to small essentials. Made from lightweight yet durable 6.25-oz 210-denier nylon double ripstop and 6.05-oz 400-denier nylon ripstop, and lined with a 1.8-oz 40-denier nylon double ripstop with a polyurethane coating and silicone finish and 200-denier polyester.
  • Lightweight, bomber, tear- and abrasion-resistant nylon ripstop
  • Asymmetrical spindrift collar opens wide for easy packing; drawcord simultaneously cinches collar and closes lid for a secure seal; additional spindrift collar deploys to protect your gear when you’ve overstuffed your pack
  • Aluminum-stay frame with tensioned mesh center gives pack structure and helps support heavy loads, but can be removed for lightweight pursuits
  • Hip belt has adjustable pads that can be removed to create a simple webbing hip belt, or you can remove the entire hip belt for ultralight travel
  • Center sheath ice-axe carry system accommodates a wide assortment of axes
  • Daisy chain on front panel provides lashing options; compression straps on sides help manage different size loads; zippered pocket on lid offers easy access to small items
  • Available in two sizes: S/M and L/XL
  • Body: 6.25-oz 210-denier 100% nylon semi-dull double ripstop and 6.05-oz 400-denier 100% nylon ripstop. Lining: 1.8-oz 40-denier 100% nylon double-ripstop with a polyurethane coating and silicone finish

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lightweight pack. I bought this as a lightweight alternative to my other heavier climbing/hiking and ski packs (an osprey variant 52 and a 32L airbag pack). Overall it has been great. When I just need a straightforward pack without the bells and whistles of the other mentioned packs, this is my new go-to. Enough straps to be sufficient if need to ski or board carry, however, other packs are better designed for this and I would not recommend (nor do I plan) to do this for very long with this pack (the pack and strap material, while I haven't had any issues yet, does not seem sharp edge-proof). The double closure system has been surprisingly useful, as the separation between the two closures can sort of act as the "brain" function of a typical backpacking/climbing pack. The (only) zipper pouch on top is essential for keeping small miscellaneous items such as car keys, but does lack the usual key clip so be careful! Of note, there is no hydration system (no outside bottle pocket nor bladder compatibility, but for me, this is not an issue, I just put a platypus bag on top). For winter adventures at least, I would say this pack is best designed for a fast and light day or overnight outing. For a longer trip with a big load, I would want a pack with more support in the hip and shoulder straps. But that's not why you are buying this. In summary, this is a great no-fuss, nothing-that's-not-needed pack that you will definitely enjoy. But it's not a one-quiver deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size I bought this for my brother and have had one of my own for almost a year now. It has been all over the world and it is amazing! It's the perfect size to be accepted as a carry on if you don't expand the top too much. The straps are comfortable and make carrying Your stuff easy. Because it doesn't have too many pockets and is small it forces you to pack light. I highly recommend this pack!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light, great design, fits like a dream, There's something about a well-fitting pack that makes life more worth living. I can run with this pack, flip upside down and the durn thing just really stays in place. Super functional, tons of room, and the design is on point. Can't say enough about this pack, unless that I wish it was made in black-on-black, which is my fav color for packs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great design really like the curve of the back, husband said it made him have better posture. great size for day hikes, liked the closure. no external pockets, but was not a problem for us since we had external pockets on my backpack for frequently accessed items like water bottles,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for its job I have seen some mixed reviews about this bag, so let me clarify one thing. This bag is for climbing and outdoor use. I don't think Patagonia ever intended this bag for anything other than technical alpine and rock use. So, with that in mind, this bag is perfect. A great combination of simplicity and features. It is completely streamlined, comfortable, and carries well. One major gripe many people have with the bag is its durability. To that point I say would you carry a stiff, bulletproof bag up a mountain? There is a great balance of weight and durability that I think Patagonia has nailed. Good job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost 5 stars... This is a great climbing pack for grade III and IV climbs. I also find myself just using it as a crag pack as well. The only flaw that I have is that the outer material is anything but durable. My friend's pack ended up with a few small tears on the first trip with the pack, and my own ascensionist is showing serious wear and I will likely see some small tears soon as well. All in all, it's a great pack, but a serious climber would wear this bag out in a few months, it's simply too thin.
