Rated 1 out of 5 by john from draw string failure (brand new) I was really excited about this bag. The durable, waterproof material was a selling point as well as the side zipper, stand-up bottom, and small storage pockets. Unfortunately there's a terrible design flaw with the drawstring. The drawstring is not a loop; single ends are held in place and can easily be pulled out of their home. When this happened I could not cinch the bag closed anymore. I barely weighted it when I cinched it and the thing blew out. It's internally housed and not something you would want to try to repair. Pretty bummed about it. Returned and not planning on buying another one. The design of that just does not make sense for a long lasting pack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Andres from Excellent pack I bought this pack for a rock trip, it is excellent and has performed well in almost all situations. I used it everyday for 25 days in a row it is bombproof. It has enough space for everything, rope, harness, shoes, cellphone, battery pack, food, etc. The only flaw I've found from this pack is the stowable rain cover, the plastic cinches to secure it are too weak!! I had to pack everything on a rainy day and while I was secure the rain cover both of them broke, and I was not pulling hard! I think this should be made from aluminum or other metal like the one on top.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Robert from Great Pack - a bit heavy Wonderfully comfortable ! Can put everything inside, except maybe rope which then lies on top. The nearly full-length zipper makes it easier to get to something you happened to have stuffed into the bottom, perhaps in your rush to pack up at the end of the day. The outside flap unzips with its own zipper to allow access to 2 compartments for quick access to stuff like maps, not-to-thick-water-btls (e.g. 2 or 3 x 1/2 liter) gloves, hat, windbreaker, etc. (I don't think BD's description of the pack puts enough emphasis on this great feature...MUCH more room than the "standard" top-flap type pocket.) Only thing to keep it from 5 stars is the weight, but I guess if you want a "bombproof" pack it's going to weigh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tim from ROUGH AND TOUGH At first, I had my doubts but I purchased this bag and love it. I wanted something that is practical for my rappelling gear/easy access. My goal was to put it to the test and to see if it failed. I took it to Zion Pine Creek and chucked it off of every cliff and into the water...it performed better than I thought and didn't break, tear, or fail. Hurled it over a the 150-ish foot cliff at Yankee Doodle and over the down-climbs into the water and mud/water. Held up with no damage to the bag or zippers. The clay and mud washed off easy. Now my go to bag that is tougher than most....oh and comfortable as well. Glad I made the purchase and more than happy I couldn't destroy it. I didn't purchase it for Disneyland so will continue to abuse it canyoneering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mar' from Über-cush suspension mit glove compartment!! Note to John re: "design flaw"~ a hidden missed stitch slipping qc does not a design-flaw make …back in the day when making your own packs and clothing was just part of being an alpinist, so was having a sewing kit. Just take a coat-hanger (file one end smooth), melt the end of the cord to it, and carefully stuff it back in as far as it will go. Holding the wire's tip/cord tightly, twist+rip the wire out. Now, pin the cord in place and sew it like yur life depended on it (it just might). Even this virtually lid-less wonder is an incredibly complex design— which must have its patterning/construction sequence painstakenly planned before and during prototyping— sheesh! Crazy-comfort, simplicity and convenience the function-criteria for a pack designed for truly heavy loads, it will last a looong time too. In spite of its complex pack design/feature-set construction, this is a very simple, very burly crag-sac~ Bravo, BD!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by james c from Awesome! This pack excels at everything I have put it through. It stows all my gear super well; sport draws, 70m rope, trad rack, water and food, along with clothing for later. It is very durable, as I have scraped it all over Joshua Tree, Red Rocks and other climbing areas, and put it through its paces. I even used it to carry dive gear (tank, weight belt, mask, wetsuit & BC) up and down the cliffs to the ocean. The straps with all that weight have held up, as it feels and rides very soundly on my hips, shoulders and chest. The separate pockets for food and small things secures those items from the main compartment in interior zippered compartments, so it seems as though storage is endless. If you need a new crag bag, backpack, this is the one to add to your arsenal. Unless of course the Creek 50 is your choice, you can't go wrong with either of these trusty packs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doug from My favorite cragging pack of all time I don't call things my fav very often, but this is one of those products. I've had it for 9 months and completely dig it. It holds enough (rope, 2 pr shoes, harness and all the other necessities, plus the extras like lunch, sunscreen, car keys). The side zip makes it super easy to access everything and the back pocket is very convenient. And it carries very well, better than most packs of this size that I tend to overstuff. It's a complete win and I would not hesitate to buy another.

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.
