75L WorkSack

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Horrible painful uncomfortable miserable! I have tested expensive bag 75L W/NWD bag $1500 in the Himalayas on an expedition to Ama dablam for 1 month. This bag is the most uncomfortable bag I have worn in my mountaineering career. I wonder if you have field tested it? The shoulder straps bit into my shoulder, causing intense pain and caused the blood supply to stop to my hands. It's in fact a dangerous bag and can lead to accidents on the mountain. I covered more than 80 miles on this backpack,… Full review

60L Worksack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great climbing pack for long climbing trips. Carries very well and its modular design allows it to be used for nearly all aspects of a big trip.

I have used it backpacking, ice cragging, rock cragging, on multi-pitch ice, and multi-pitch rock, alpine climbing, and even snowshoeing. I have carried anywhere from… Full review

45L WorkSack

rated 5 of 5 stars Best winter pack ever! It's light but durable. Simple but highly customizable. All straps are possible to move into a plethora of combinations. Whatever you want to attach on the outside of the pack, just move the straps to fit your desires. Need to attach more stuff, just order more straps, though you'll get a ton to start with, I only ordered the specific ski carry straps, but I'm sure you can make some out of the straps you get with the bag, I was lazy. It comes in different lengths which is… Full review

60L Worksack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I just did my first trip with this pack - sadly the trip didn't work out due to weather but the pack did. First off, Cilogear's service is excellent and very personal; they build a relationship with you and discuss your needs. My initial thoughts on receiving the pack were that it appeared to have everything laid out where it should be, the weight was very light and the pack compresses down very small. Fabric is excellent - the right combination of lightness or scuff-resistance where you need it… Full review
