Creek 35 Pack is rated out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by George from A Book By Its Cover The super tough exterior - clearly capable of taking abuse - encases an interior with numerous pockets to hold smaller and personal items. The front zippered pocket for various items is sheer genius.This guy is surprisingly cavernous and can hold a lot of gear. Some people complain it should have load-lifters, like the Creek 50. But if you have your heavy stuff at the bottom, you should be OK. On the other hand, if you have a helmet and lots of hardwear, you might indeed want to consider stepping up to the Creek 50. I don't, so for me the Creek 35 is EXACTLY what I was looking for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rich from Great Cragging Pack... except... A great cragging pack; well thought out... almost perfect in every way except one glaring omission... the lack of of 'top tension' / top stabilisation straps / load lifters... ... BD, you put these on the Creek Pack 50 so why not the 35 - would make a good pack perfect...

Rated 5 out of 5 by mrlandino from The Perfect Crag Pack I bought this pack for its intended use at the crag. I fill this thing up with 3 liters of water, a full rack of draws, a 70 meter rope, 2 pairs of shoes, harness, chalk bag, warm layers, and food. It is rugged on the outside so its perfect for throwing around and getting dirty. Im never worried about ripping this bag or placing it somewhere I'm gonna regret later. The full zip down makes it super easy to get things out quickly or just finding something buried in your bag. It easily sits upright due to the base of the pack making it easy to get things out. The hip and shoulder straps are comfortable when hauling a lot of gear. There really isn't anything bad about this pack in my opinion. Everything feels strong and durable and built to last. BD really nailed it on this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jonathan from Great pack with a fatal flaw Bulletproof, stand up like a haul bag, full suspension for compact heavy loads and long days at the crag. My 1 issue issue is no load lifter straps. Why give a pack such a great ridgity and hip belt and not give the ability to bring that heavy load closer to the hiker?? I’m probs going to get rid of this pack for a Patagonia Cragsmith. Buuuuut add the load lifters and this is a 5 Star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Caleb from Incredible pack. This pack is so well thought through. I opted for the 35 because it has a spot for the rope on top, but no compression straps. With a pack that compresses well, I typically go for the bigger pack. Since this one doesn't compress, I figured I can pack draws and sport stuff with the rope inside easily, and if I'm having a gear heavy trad cragging day, I can put the rope outside on top and still have room for the rack and extra gear. I'm also fairly certain the 35L capacity is a very, very, very conservative. This thing swallows gear. Pros: -Stands up -Crazy durable -Unzips to the bottom to dump gear -Zips up from the bottom to grab gear from bottom of pack -Full load-hauling aluminum frame -Great hip pads & shoulder straps -Rope cinch webbing on top -Bomber zippers -Can fit plenty in front pocket, even when main area is stuffed Cons: -The blue handle between the shoulder straps doesn't lie flat or stick straight up. It basically just points towards your neck at all times. This is very easily remedied by passing the rope-cinch webbing through it before you clip it in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sierradad from Super Burly, Heavy This is a great cragging pack, particularly if you are tough on your gear or expect your sack to stand up to moderate hauling. That burliness comes with a weight penalty, but as long as you're willing to carry a few extra pounds, you won't go wrong. Only design issue is with the zippered external pocket, the top of which can snag while hauling. Having the rain flap/cover extend from that pocket, rather than from its own zippered pouch, would make a ton of sense.
