I love the "old-school" construction and look of the Cactus Climbing Miklat and wondered if anyone out there has experience with this or possibly their other mid-size pack, the Vacuole? Cheers, Bob

Sorry I can't help you, Bob.

However, thanks for bringing a new pack brand to my attention. I'll be sure to add Cactuc Climbing to our directory of outdoor gear brands for review and info:

No experience with that backpack, but i fully understand why you like the design.  as a domestic alternative, you might consider cold cold world.  the cold cold world ozone is along the same lines - similar size, no frame, heavy-duty ballistic nylon, very simple (single strap closure, no compression straps).  I picked one up late summer and recently reviewed it on this site.  it's great, and a bargain.  they have a similar sized pack with a few more features, the valdez.

Is this the back pack? Found it on the internet. Looks like an internal frame pack to me.

It might be. There are pictures on the Cactus site. I'm wondering if anyone has ever used one.
