Fine backpack for hiking and climbing.


  • Good shape of shoulder straps
  • Possible attachement for rope
  • Design
  • Hip belt sling for equipment with two slots for ice clipper


  • Price
  • Non-adjustable head


It fits great even when carrying heavy load. Shoulder straps have special design and it improves how it sits on your back. With little trying I set shoulder straps and hip belt to fit perfectly.


As I said, it's very comfortable.

Organization & Accessibility

It would be great if it would allow some access inside from side or from the bottom, but it doesn't. It has outside and inside pocket in head and one inside the bag that fits camelback. It has two holes for Source pipe. 


I like it since it is not big and clumsy so I can climb chimneys and stuff.


Hip belt slings with slot for ice clipper.

Hole for Source camelback.

Special attachment for crampons on the outside of the backpack.

Attachemnt for rope.

Construction & Durability

It is still like new.


I am using it for one year for climbing.

I just regret there is second access to the inside and if you have lot of stuff you can not lift the cover of backpack (head) with some adjustable straps. If I put lot of stuff in, I have troubles looking up for the route or belaying first climber.
