This is a pack that makes you say, “Why didn’t I think of that?!” The outside is cleanly designed: The top has a recessed area and buckle to nestle a rope with two side compression straps to keep it in place. Two grab handles (one on top and one in the middle on the outside) make it easy to throw around from car to crag, and a perfectly sized guidebook pocket gives you easy access for beta checks. Unzip the zipper that goes all the way around three sides to reveal a rectangular main compartment. Inner mesh pockets can hold shoes, harness, a water bottle, and personal items (keys, wallet, phone) while gear loops at the top are ideal for racking. Then throw in a rope tarp to boot. Caveat: No waistbelt and flimsy suspension made carrying heavy loads long distances a literal pain.
