Amazing pack for long trips. Super comfortable. It's nice to load the pack from several panels. And the hydratation system included is an extra value. Great backpack.

Black Diamond gear has always meant quality and performance to me. I love my ATC xp. Most of my partners are a lot heavier than me, or I must say I'm a lot lighter , so the variable friction is a good thing for me. Great control with multiple rope diameters 8.1 to 11mm. Easy to use.

Goods: It is so lightweight and so comfortable I forget I'm wearing it. Four super-bright LEDs beam the light blasts out a good 12 to 15 yards. Very efficient battery power consume. I found great use for the tilt housing.
Bads: Expensive, but not too much if you compare it with other brands. After some wearing the wire tends to disconnect and is very difficult to repair it, impossible I may say. I'm trashing mine after a year of use
