a.k.a. spud-climber

Just wondering if anybody has had any experience with either one of these packs (Black Diamond Stone Pack and BD Speed 28 Pack)? I'm trying to decide on a pack that will make a good summit pack for alpine climbs and a pack that would work well for day long climbs etc. Wondering how durable the Speed 28 is. Trying to get a little feedback before I make a decision.

Can't find a review of the Stone 33, but there's a review of the Stone 40 (and a bunch of comparable packs) here:

I have the speed 28. The pack body fabric is thinner than the BD stone series. It's a great summit pack, but it will get trashed quickly if you plan on hauling it on rock.
