Black Diamond designed its Speed Zip 24 Backpack to be the one climbing pack you need whether you're climbing ice in Bozeman, sandstone at the Creek, or snow in Cascadia. Its zippered clamshell top grants easy access to climbing gear and extra layers, while the ice tool PickPockets and snag-free crampon straps secure your mountaineering and ice climbing essentials. Already sporting a bare bones alpine-specific design, the Speed Zip can be stripped down even more thanks to the removable hipbelt, framesheet, and foam bivy pad for those times you're forced to make an unexpected stay on the mountain. Chances are good you'll have this pack stuffed to the gills with gear when you venture into the alpine, so BD added a hydration compatible sleeve, so you won't have to try to stuff water bottles and bladders in with the rest of your climbing gear.
