/ Which Rucksack?
I currently have a rope bag and separate day pack for a full rack, shoes, harness etc. However having 2 bags is a bit cumbersome..
I have been looking at 45L Rucksacks hoping they will fit all of my gear... (http://www.outdoorkit.co.uk/product.php?product_id=4436)
What does everyone else use? Any suggestions for good cheap rucksacks?
I have a Crag 45+10 (Berghaus) which is excellent for a day at the crag or a multi day hike :)
My normal day pack for walking or if i havent gotta take rope (Bouldering) is a Osprey talon 33. This is a lighter weight sack than the Berghaus. Lighter material. I have had this for about 4 years and it is used most days for work as I either gym or climb after work :)
If you want a bombproof pack go for the Crag or similar, Arete. Normally if you put a wanted ad out on ere someone I am sure will get back to you.
Good luck with the search.
Most people I know still buy their rucsac for other reasons other than just to fit cragging gear in, but if you have no other pressing mountaineering or backpacking aspirations that justify spending £100+, then Tesco does perfectly adequate 45l rucsacs these days as does the more obvious Mountain Warehouse and Millets.
Nice looking pack - however a little out of my price range!
thanks for the reply!
Thanks for the quick replies - might try hunting down a Berghaus Arete and a Crag to have a look at.. Decent price and look like they will do what I need!
I have Aarn Peak Aspiration, 50L size 1, see:
Awesome bit of kit, but I have 6 sacs of about the same size!
Comes with the pockets, £60 inc P & P
Also have its baby brother the 30 litre NATURAL EXHILARATION, I have used this a bit more for skiing as it 'moves' with you!
£85 for the lot including P & P
Let me know if you're interested.
The Climbing Technology Falesia Pack is a great little climbing pack for a day at the crag.
There are slots and pockets to carry shoes, extenders etc and even a large removeable groundsheet to sit on, protect your rope, keep your rockboots clean etc.
It is 45 litres and The shoulder straps can be tucked away for travelling and then pulled out ready for the approach to the crag.
A great value, versatile pack!
you can find it at joe brown for £40.
Have sent you a mail...
