Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, simple design. Wrong fit. This bag is delightfully simple. The main compartment is large and spacious, fitting a rope, harness, shoes, and a single rack. The most motivated can find somewhere to shove a water bottle as well, though the helmet has to live on the outside. The fabric seemed durable and relatively water resistant, but I did not have a chance to put it through the wringer. I returned this pack because both the shoulder straps and the hip belt did not fit me very well. There were strange pressure points that no amount of adjusting could fix, and I found that the belt rubbed uncomfortably on my somewhat bony hips. Also, the gear loops are kind of lame. You can put a couple pieces on them, but they seemed flimsy and the gear did not clip smoothly when cleaning.
