This big daddy swallows mounds of gear, opens and closes with the quick efficiency of a gym duffel and carries all your stuff via an internal frame sheet that guarantees comfort and mobility on the gnarliest approaches. We designed the massive main compartment to open with a long, duffel-style zipper for quick and efficient packing and unpacking. An internal stash pocket holds your guidebook, and two exterior stretch mesh pockets carry water bottles. The removable frame sheet, made from lightweight aluminum, provides support for weighted loads and moves with you as you bend and flex. Ergonomic airflow mesh shoulder straps (with load lifters) and back panel match your torso’s contours; the padded hip belt wraps your hips in comfort. When you’re cragging, two large grab handles let you pick up the pack and move quickly between routes. Side compression straps accommodate various loads and pull double duty when you need to attach an extra rope or more gear. Made from 7.4-oz 630-denier nylon with a polyurethane coating. The base is 9.25-oz 940-denier Cordura® Ballistic nylon with a polyurethane coating. Both fabrics have a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.

Water Resistant

 (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.

Recycled Nylon

Although we’ve been using recycled polyester in our garments for 20 years, for some reason locked deep in polymer chemistry, nylon is more difficult to recycle than polyester. After years of research, development, and testing, we’re finally finding some recycled nylon fibers that are suitable for apparel.

Some of the recycled nylon we use comes from post-industrial waste fiber, yarn collected from a spinning factory, and waste from the weaving mills that can be processed into reusable nylon fiber.

We’re diligently searching for a success story with recycled nylon. The challenge lies ahead of us, and we’re committed to discovering the best methods to recycle nylon fiber, but it appears this evolution will take many years.

Crag Daddy Pack 45L is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hauls gear like a mule Surprised at how well this held up. I've used it on a bunch of climbing day trips and was able to stuff a full 70m rope, 31 quickdraws, a trad rack with BD .2-4 cams with doubles in .3-2, harness, grigri, and cordelettes, all inside. Fairly comfy and the duffel bag opening makes accessing gear convenient

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great but just too small Ok, maybe I'm being a bit harsh here but I'm use to great products from Patagonia and am seldom disappointed. And two, it's a bit pricey compared to other packs so you would expect it be pretty much perfect. It is good, in some ways. It's comfortable to carry and I love the big zipper duffle bag style pack. Really the main reason I bought it. The big pockets on the side are also awesome and really massive. I can cram in two water bottles in one side! The build is also quite good and the pack seems to be holding up great, as all Patagonia stuff. Ok, now the bad. It's just too small. Even for sport climbing it fills up surprisingly quickly. A set of quickdraws, a harness, chalk bag, lunch and a extra fleece and it's pretty much full. I have to carry my rope outside my bag in a rope bag. I might be able to cram it all in but it would take a bit of work and not much room for extra layers. Also, The organizational pockets, one on the inside and one on the outside are ridiculously small and ineffective. I would suggest to have two outside pockets and make them a bit larger. The waist belt is also too long. It literally hangs down to my knees. I think that while there is a rope loop on the top of the bag it's not useful if you have a rope bag as it's not long enough to accommodate a rope bag, why not? lets face it, this bag is made for sport climbers (obviously a rack wouldn't fit in this bag!!) so why not make a loop that you can attach on a rope bag? I don't recommend this bag only because of the size. If you can live with it then for sure it's a good quality bag. I look forward to improvements in this design.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Could've been great, but simply not big enough. So, the build quality, aesthetics, and comfort of this pack are great, but it simply does not fit nearly enough gear to be a "crag daddy" of any kind, and I'm a sport climber! I can't imagine having a trad rack, trying to stuff this thing. I tried fitting a 70m rope/w thin rope tarp (9.2mm) 16 Petzl Spirit draws (17cm), 1 Gri Gri 2 w/Petzl Attache 3D locker, 1 Petzl Reverso w/Petzl Attache 3D Locker, Belay Specs w/plastic box, 1 pair of climbing shoes, 1 Harness, 1 average size chalk bag, 1 litre Nalgene, two bananas, 1 lightweight down puffy, 1 relatively thick guidebook, and a small plastic bag with climbing tape, file, ointment, salve, etc. Honestly, I would say this is very average for a sport climber's backpack, and when I tried to zip this closed I felt like the zipper was going to explode (I didn't continue) Instead, I decided to put the rope on top of the pack, and fasten it down with the included nylon webbing and metal buckle. Ok, now it fit, but who wants to do that every time? The whole reason for getting a duffel style pack is the easy load/unload, and if it happens to rain, then your rope gets soaked no matter what. Not only that, but the rope flops around, hitting you in the elbows, even on short approaches. Also, the guidebook zipper pocket isn't even big enough for Islands in The Sky, which is a very tiny guidebook! If Patagonia offered a 55L I would buy it tomorrow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable - Versatile - Works Well Initital impression: Pretty darn good. I modernized my rack and it was time to upgrade / modernize my crag pack as well - pleased so far and much lighter. Easy packing, carries well, huge side pockets, seems to be the "right" size for long days lunch - water - extra layer etc. Definitely works. Everything seems well thought out and durable enough after a few outings. Had my doubts about the long center zipper with out a backup. Seems burly enough so far. I didn't really shop or compare other options in the "crag bag" segment - just went with tried and true Patagonia and I'm pleased. Get one. Improvement Suggestion in case you're reading - Design Team: Make the compression strap buckles male / female (ala Dana Design packs) vs. male / male This way, besides the normal compression configuration, you can connect the straps to themselves across the zipper just in case and offers more versatility to "add-on / overstuff " if needed - thinking belay parka here

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Well-designed pack with fabric flaw I've been using this pack for about a month and was loving it. I use it for hauling survey gear for fieldwork in Alaska. I'm pretty disappointed that the fabric that lines the back of the pack on the interior of the bag wore through; basically, the stuff I put in the pack (clipboards, GPS unit, measuring tapes) abraded the fabric where it touches the metal interior frame and wore holes through it. Perhaps a heavier-duty fabric should line the bag. Also, I like the deep pockets but it would be nice if the the webbing fastener just above the pockets were a little higher up to better secure long items. It'll be mailed back to Patagonia for warranty evaluation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb If you're looking for a climbing pack to carry lots of gear to the crag, look no further. Holds lots of stuff. check. Big zipper so its easy to stuff and empty. check. Comfortable fully featured harness. check. There are a couple of other similar duffel style climbing backpacks out there but they dont have the exterior pockets like this one does. The stretchy water bottle pockets are really big. Multiple water bottles can completely disappear in each one. I recently had a 32oz and a 20 oz in one pocket, and there was room for more. You can put your stinky shoes or a jacket in other pocket. Probably both. The zipper pocket is good for snacks or a guide book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fitting Would have been five stars. Internal gear hooks would have made it sooo much better. The fit is perfect though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked out great taking the train to Boston Loved this bag for my trip from Philadelphia to Boston. All my clothes and gear fit inside and I was hands free. The straps are easily adjustable to fit around your waist and chest. It converts into a duffle when you take it off your back for easy unpacking. Side pockets to fit extra shoes and a hidden zipper space inside for documents or dirty clothes. I find this bag is perfect for a 3-5 day trip.
