Amazing backpack for anything you want. Simple travel with heavy loads, or use as an approach bag to the closest rock.

The V2 back system allows to setup the shoulder straps for any height of person (I am 6'6", 198cm), so it was not easy to find a good pack. The airventilation is pretty good, under heavy loads too. It is waterproof I guess, I never used a raincover for it and all of my stuff was dry.

Inside you can separate a sleeping bag part at the bottom, so you don't need to take off all of your equip' to reach your bag, it is useful. The cover has to pockets, and in the front pocket you find smaller packets for tooth brush, paste, knife. There are two loops for ice Axes and several side straps.

The hip belt is one of the most comfortable that I've ever tried. On the bottom sides there are two net-pocket for bottles or waterproof stuff, it is a bit out-stretched now.

I've been owning this bag since 2001, still looks new and "fashion" I don't want to change it, or for the same, just newer model.

Good product, happy to use


  • Simple single large compartment
  • Horizontal divider when needed


  • Simplicity makes for digging through everything for that one item that always seems to be at the bottom.
  • No inside vertical sleeves for spotter or tripod

Worked well for me while guiding, 70 l. fits a life-size billy cape easily. Durable, good harness straps though they absorb rain they dry fast. Carries 70-lb load no problem. Heavier for longer I would want a full frame.
