Hey I'm looking for a smallish bag to take on routes to carry shoes, food and spare layers. Also looking for it to be able to carry stuff for the walkins with rope and helmet on the outside. Any recommendations would be great.

This is what i'm getting in spring ready for some multipitch action. I've tried it on and it fits like a dream. Lots of attatchment options, and you can wear it high on your back but still look up wearing a helmet!

Is there any way to attach a rope to the outside of it as I can't see any way.

We use small mountain bike bags with bladders when in summer we multipitch with two 55m ropes.

Not sure if you mean summer or winter ?

You can use the two side straps, and the strap to hold the water bladder in to hold a half, then get your mate to carry the other backpack style.

I am very happy with this one: http://www.podsacs.com/packs_granite16.html

On the larger side of the climbing packs but I like to take an extra layer, trainers and probably a bit more food with me for long routes where I don't want to come back to the base of the climb to pick up my pack and gear. Found it really comforable to climb with this pack because it sits high above my harness and I can reach gear on the harness without problems.

In reply to andrew549: I have the Osprey 28 litre. Seems spot on for multipitching (I recently did a big wall with it) and is a good size for seconding and sits high on your back so doesn't interfere with your gear loops and chalk bag. The BD ones look good too but they are much more expensive.

In reply to andrew549: Karrimor pitch 18, good fit when climbing, enough straps and volume to carry whatever you might need for the day comfortably.

In reply to Stephi: Is it possible to fit 2 pairs of shoes to walk off in the bag along with a spare layer and some food.

Sad to see no-one recommending a version of this yet: http://www.alpkit.com/shop/cart.php?target=product&product_id=16268&category_id=251 I use mine as a multi pitch bag, but can also get bivi kit, stove, crampons and food in it for a night out. I put a bit of tat on the back to carry a roll mat and axe: ( https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/185499_10152057980810445_12888251_n.jpg )

In reply to jonnie3430: I already have a 25L gourdon but find it difficult to pack well with hard objects due to its shape and looking for something a bit smaller as well.

In reply to andrew549: Another vote for Osprey Mutant 28. Has a floating lid so can be strapped down pretty small but will easily fit your rack etc in the bag for the walk in. Ropes will go under the lid (there's a strap to secure them) I've carried two 60m half ropes no problem.

Hi Andy,

I could fit my hiking boots (size 5) and a pair of my mate's larger trainers, food, water bottle, an extra layer and a guidebook into this pack. For the walk in, I even managed to squeeze in my harness, half of the rack, rock boots, food, water bottle and one extra layer. Only my insulated jacket, rope and helmet had to be attached outside.

This is what I use:

On the walk in you can attach a rope to the bungee cords on the outside and there is an extending pocket which fits my helmet.
When it's almost empty it still sits quite close to the back - good for climbing.

Another vote for the Pod Sac. I've done some multipitch in Wales with it, fitting mine and my partner's approach shoes in for the descent, guidebook, and probably a bit of food and water too. It's got an internal pouch for a water reservoir which is also helpful if you want to separate items that you're carrying. Rope can be attached at the top and it's got a few loops to clip things to.

BD double-ended rope bag. Shove your jacket and snacks in one end, rope in the other.
I use it in winter and works well, makes rope management easier too.
