DescriptionA worthy addition to any multi-pitch kit, the Rock Blitz 15 is designed to move with you pitch after pitch, carrying all the essentials to the summit. Featuring our signature Blitz-style main opening and a side zip pocket for quick on-route access to a phone, topo, or camera, this pack also has a stripped-down profile for moving fast on big lines. The top closure strap doubles as a rope carry once you summit, and external H2O hose routing gives you the option of staying hydrated on the send. The pack's EVA padded shoulder straps and back panel make for all-day comfort, while the sternum strap and waist belt are fully removable to save weight on fast and light pushes.

Rock Blitz 15 Backpack is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris from Initial Impressions I own a lot of packs in various sizes, but generally hate carrying them on-route. Since it becomes more and more of a stretch to avoid the pack on longer routes, I'm sometimes forced to carry one just to have enough water and other essentials I can't easily fit in pockets or hang off my harness. With the Rock Blitz 15, I've found an on-route pack that I'm actually happy to take up the climb. It's light, sleek, and the back length isn't stunted just to make it one-size-fits-all. The guidebook pocket is a perfect feature and the top "blitz" closure seems simple and functional. The construction is a good balance of abrasion resistance and weight without the full haul-proof super-high-denier nylon like some other designs. Full disclosure: I haven't actually brought it up a route, but it leaves a strong initial impression with me. This is a simple but well-thought-out leader pack - truly great product design. Wish I had this at Red Rocks last year.
