Hi all,

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?

In reply to Nickster: Hi Nick,
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.

In reply to Nickster: Toby's recent gear review of some 'crag packs' http://www.ukclimbing.com/gear/review.php?id=3906 is worth looking at (even if only for interest) as is the accompanying thread.

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.

Hey all,

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!

In reply to Nickster: I've got a POD Alpine 40 that's hardly been used going for sale if you're interested. Size 3- fits me fine and I'm 6' in height. Would be looking for £70 for it. Roll top with removable/expandable top and extends to much further than 40l. Can fit all my cragging gear in it easily.

Let me know if you're interested.

In reply to Nickster: Hi I have a climbilg technology felisia pack and I think its purfect.
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.
