The ArcTeryx RT 25 is made of bomber materials and rides great due to the narrow profile, which makes scrambling or traversing to routes a non-perilous pursuit. The best two things about this pack are that there are no buckles or zippers to break for the main compartment and that the pack is waterproof, which makes it great for those summer showers or ice-climbing trips. The rope lashes on nicely to the top of the pack with the built-on rope straps. Pack comes with the standard Arcteryx ice axe loops.
There is enough room to fit shoes, harness, chalkbag, fleece, snacks, dozen draws, and whatever doesn't fit goes on the gear loops.
The pack is so versitile, since I use it for everything from hiking, mtn biking, climbing, and adventure racing
The pack is made in Canada and not in a sweatshop like the other packs.
