User Review: Marmot Eiger 36
Number of Pockets: 1
Max. Load Carried: 28
Height of Owner: 5'11''
Price Paid: about 100 bucks
The Eiger held up really well under some pretty tough stuff. We did Mt. Elbert, taking our time (had two first timers to altitude with me) two-day summit. Then lived in Rocky Mountain for three days. Five days and only reloaded water and that was at natural runs.
So efectively held five days of gear. This includes bag, stove, seven days of food, 110 oz of water (70 full, 50 backup). Cook set (SnowpeakTitanium full rig) MSR titanium, water filtration, shell, and the body of a Moss Titan GT, split three ways.
Great trip and no complaints about the pack other than I had to lash some to the outside at the beginning. Had an Ultralite Therm-A-Rest lashed to outside and had to adapt crampon coverage on lid. And the piolet (ice axe) lash seemed to sit higher than I like but I had a cane practically (80cm) not tall just like it on light hikes. Had some other stuff but I forget exactly.
Expected the BioSpan to fail miserably at almost 30 lbs but held very well. GOOD BUY if that counts for anything. Great mountaineering pack on some of the steepest ladders.
Good trips to you all.
