CAMP Roxback Pack


Drop it right in the dirt, unzip, and go—a full-length zipper against your back (we promise you won’t even feel it) allows the Roxback to lie on the ground in a more accessible and clean position (no more putting the grimy side against your sweaty back). The frameless design keeps the weight minimal at 1 lb., 10 oz., but the 40-liter capacity still easily fits a day’s worth of sport climbing gear and then some. Inner loops kept gear organized, which made racking up quick and easy; plus, large external mesh pockets hold space-hogging water bottles, and external straps let you carry the rope outside the pack securely. Padded back panels and breathable mesh shoulder straps made long schleps enjoyable even in the heat of summer. We took it to crags across Colorado for several months, dragged it through the dirt, and generally abused it; the polyurethane-coated, 400-denier nylon showed no fatal signs of wear. Briefcase handles on the top, outside front, and against the back allowed us to grab the pack and throw it around without searching for straps. $80;
