By combining our popular Stone Duffel 42 with our haul bag inspired Creek Packs, we’ve created the Crag 40—a climbing pack that’s a one-and-done purchase for sport climbers, boulderers and trad climbers who are looking for the ultimate value. With its top-loader inspired design, the Crag 40 provides 40 liters of gear storage, while a full-length side zipper provides easy access. A zippered front flap is perfect for stashing guidebooks, while an internal pocket keeps your keys, wallet and other essentials organized. The Crag 40’s top flap acts as a rope strap, so you can conveniently strap your cord to the top. 

  • Top loading design with drawcord skirt closure
  • Full length zipper access
  • External zippered front pocket and internal organizer pocket
  • Integrated rope strap

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First trip to Red River Gorge Just back from Kentucky and this pack worked great! It was perfect for hauling everything out and back to several crags we were able to climb. Have no complaints... would recommend this pack to add to any kit!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sport / light trad pack I have had this pack for a year now and I love it!! I use it outdoors 2-4 times a month and use it in the gym almost every day . I have loaded this up with the biggest rack I could and besides being heavy it worked great ,I have drug it through brush and sharp rock and I am almost sad to say that it still looks brand new

Rated 4 out of 5 by from simple, rugged and light-weight I'm a big fan of these bucket style packs with the side zip. This design does away with a lot of the fussiness of the traditional top-loader packs. I already own the Creek 50 but decided to get this one for my gym kit. It's a simple, rugged and light-weight pack at a nice price. Thanks BD!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Crag Pack This is a well made, affordable pack that has enough room for everything you need for a day at the crag. I was able to fit a 70m rope, harness, hardware, helmet, food, water, and guidebook without difficulty. The double side zip is brilliant and allows you to reach items in the bottom of the pack without having to pull out all the contents. The outside pocket fits guidebooks and smaller items well. The shoulder straps and hip belt provide plenty of support for extended approaches, I had no problems during a 2 hour hike with a full pack. The construction is burly and should last for years of use. All in all I've been very impressed with the Crag 40.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Simple but functional design, doesn't fit me well. I love the streamlined features of this pack. The cinch top is great and easy to use, the rope strap on top is a functional necessity, and the large tearaway zipper makes accessing the pack a breeze. I like the pocket on the front of the pack and found it handy for stashing a guidebook, snacks, and phone/wallet/keys etc. I even took it as my one bag on a recent trip to NYC. The material of the pack body seems exceptionally solid but time and repeated use and abuse at the crag will tell as to whether it holds up. The one thing I will say is an exterior water bottle pocket seems like a no-brainer to add. Those are the positives. The negatives, for me, lie in how the pack fits me. I am 6'0", 165 lbs, size 30 waist. I have a long torso and so I ordered the M/L. No matter how tightly I cinch down the hip-belt, it ends up sitting about a full inch (maybe an inch and a half) above my hips, even when loaded down with gear. I have tried different variations of tightness on the shoulder straps to help with this but I cannot get it to fit quite right. A bit of a bummer, honestly, because I love everything else about the pack. Especially the price. The componentry (buckles, straps, etc.) is rather basic because of this affordability, but by and large seems fine. Have definitely used it too many times to return it at this point, but overall I am satisfied with the purchase, I just wish that it felt like I was wearing a pack rather than carrying one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT PACK After experiencing nothing but excellence from this company over the years, I felt the time had come to finally write a review...This pack is great for virtually any climbing/outdoors activity, but excels at trad climbing. Whats even more impressive is Black Diamonds warranty policy. Excellent pack, outstanding customer service and warranty, loyal customer for life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pack Have used this pack for the last 5 weeks on a climbing trip. Would highly recommend it! Lots of room for all necessary cragging items, including a full rack. Side zipper makes it easy to access gear. Durable materials and well throughout design.
