/ Climbing pack suggestions
Have a look at:
Decide on a budget, then have a day around Betws trying on different packs.
Also worth a look:
I would say that you don't need pockets on a climbing sack, what do you want them for specifically?
Would highly recommend the Crux 30, excellent piece of kit.
Full rack, bivi kit and scoff for 1 day, all fits in!
Only niggle I had...the web straps from the shoulder straps were too small so I replaced them.
I also cut the white cord off the sides and replaced it with accessory cord so I could make emergency prusiks, shoe laces, guy rope etc would thoroughly recommend it, so good in fact I bought the 57 as well.
Hope this helps
PS It seems to be bomb proof as well, have hammered it and shows no sign of wear.
Only caution is not to leave the staves in when boarding/biking, I did, I fell, stave shattered, result was an incredibly sharp pointy metal blade sticking out the bag... if I had landed on it I would have been in a messy place.
Crux AK30 is great.
Arc'teryx Needle 35 is well worth a look (my preferred weapon of choice)
Good choice mate, you won't regret it!
