This backpack has been a good companion in short hikes, climbing and a bit of mountaineering. Definitely recommended for climbing - the shape is so well engineered, that it doesn't get in the way of your harness (meaning you can easily use the harness loops for hardware), doesn't stick out too much when climbing tight spaces and you don't touch the top of it while looking up.Very light and yet sturdy bag (doesn't have any damage after a week of climbing in the Alps). It had enough space for my climbing gear, clothes (rain pants, down jacket and hardshell, two pairs of gloves, hat and neck gaiter), hydration system and snacks and it perfectly held my ice axe while I was climbing. It also has gear loops on the inside, making it easy to keep things organized and handy. Clever helmet carry on the outside saves space. Very comfy to carry a rope, making it my daily climbing gym backpack. I totally love it!
This bag is exactly as described. It's lightweight and packs really well. The shoulder strap design makes this pack feel very light on your back and shoulders when fully packed. I bought it as a multipitch pack, that I also use for a day pack hiking. The removable straps make this for an all around bag, convenient for multiple purposes.
