A perfect company on multi pitch
Review by: tisar, 2007-01-12
Bought this buddy on a trip to Italy and had the chance to test it on a couple of multi pitch routes. The all over fit is perfect. It takes seconds after putting it on to totally forget there's something on your back. And due to the "Airstripes back system" you won't be reminded by a sweat-dripping back also. The expandable main compartment has enough space for everything you'll need on a daytrip and contains a couple of smaller pockets for keys, wallet and other stuff. The elastic mesh pocket in front takes the helmet - or, while climbing, your approach shoes (just be sure to secure them with a biner, I lost one of mine on Bucco D'Arrancio and had to hike back a mile barefoot...). The hydration system works perfectly. The bladder opens wide for easy filling and cleaning and the mouth piece is leak-proof. There are three sizes available (1,2,3 litres). What can I say? A perfect company on multi pitch.
