Overall a very good climbing pack. My only complaints are that the release buckles on the shoulder straps lie too closely to the straps making it difficult to loosen, especially with a gloved hand. A scooped/scalloped one (like Black Diamond uses on the BeBee) would be a fantastic enhancement. The cinch strap for attaching a rope (or jacket, ets) between the spindrift collar and the top pocket (which is NOT removable unless you cut it off!) is VERY handy. It is removable unlike the top pocket. This is a true climber's pack unliske most which are designed for backpacking.
