DescriptionA simple, burly on-route pack inspired by our haulbags, the Black Diamond Creek 20 provides durable protection for your essentials, whether you're carrying or hauling. The top-loading design features a drawcord skirt and an integrated, stowable rope strap, while an internal zippered pocket stores your phone, route topo or bars. When it's time to deal with the crux or a thrasher chimney pitch, stow the shoulder straps, remove the waistbelt and haul away. The two top grab handles easily clip to the belay and double as haul points, and mini side daisy chains let you attach shoes or extra gear outside the pack.
- Durable, waterproof haul-bag fabric
- Padded shoulder straps and dual-density hip belt, thermoformed backpanel
- Top-loading design with drawcord skirt closure
- Creek 50 and 35 have full-length side zipper for easy access to pack contents

Rated 5 out of 5 by Big Crimpin from Amazing multipitch pack I've used this bag pretty heavily for the last 2 years or so, and love it to death. Besides being my gym bag, airplane carry-on, day hike pack, and even day to day bag. I've used this on ~8 multi-pitch routes, taken it up a rough chimney, beat it up at the crag, and I still see no blemishes. The materials are super resilient, and the design of the pack is the perfect amount of minimal. The one inside pocket is not great, but it's not the worst I've seen before. The haul loops at the top are super secure and have become useful in attaching the bag to the anchor, or for lowering it below you after failing to fit through the top of that off-width chimney. The front of the pack also has some daisy chained loops which allowed me to run elastic shock-cord into a compression pattern on the front. Handy for quick stashing layers, or for holding shoes on the approach. My favorite pack to this date.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Karl Roberts from Fantastic pack Originally bought this and a 'Street Creek 24'. This 'Creek 20' is better for my needs, but both are great. The Creek 20 has very durable fabric, and cleans up easily. It stands up by itself, making it easy to work with. Removable/hideable straps are lightly padded, which is fine for the weight to be carried. Love the closure. No zips to break. Bottom is strengthened by extra webbing. Simple, bomber day pack. The only improvement would be a rain cover like the one included with its bigger brothers (35&50 L), or on the Street 24. A removable sternum strap would also be great. I own about 20 different packs (I'm old!), and this is a keeper. Great for a small, sport rack and shoes. I'm very happy with it. This will see a lot of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TimQ from Perfect utility bag Great for hauling tools, just as good as a tote around town. Love that the bag stands up on its own, is lite and dynamic in use. Such a great value. Tool bag, climbing pack, diaper bag, light grocery or growler run...whatever you need it for. The 35 size would be ideal for a proper haul, but this is great too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jackalope415 from Beyond bomber--the Creek abides 20 years ago I bought one of the first Bullet packs. That rig came along on adventures from the Eastside to Cambodia to the Bugaboos and everywhere in between! This little Creek bag is the newest addition to my quiver and it'll likely be here in 40 years. No joke, this thing is truly bombproof...and yet really comfortable to wear. Good on ya BD!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ben from Great Bag This bag is great. I got it to replace my old BD Speed bag which was full of holes from hauling. Although its only been hauled a few pitches thus far, the burlier material seems to be holding up great. This bag is also just big enough for afternoons at the sport crag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ward from Love the heavy fabric and simple design My new lead pack. prefect seize for bolting gear, a puffy, and water. Like the haul loops too. Could work for some light hauling. Fabric is so much easier to deal with than the haul bag fabric that gets super stiff when cold.
