Equipment and wearing properties
This climbing backpack from Osprey is a real all-rounder. Ideal as climbing backpack with a rope attachment and additional attachment of two ice tools (ToolLock). As a companion on mountain tours, he offers attachment rubbers for hiking poles and has a hip belt with short hip fins for weight distribution and a comfortable fit on the hip.
I also like to use it in everyday life, but you can easily remove the hip belt. The backpack is still comfortable with heavy contents. When empty, it is extremely light and can be made very small by the side V-straps. He has a large compartment in which the back is again a slot for the water bag. There is also a handy small compartment for keys and co inside, which can be closed with a Velcro closure. The additional lid compartment provides enough space for things that you need quickly, such as hat, gloves, tempo or also the rain jacket…
The backpack has on the chest strap integrated into the buckle whistle for emergencies. To save weight on tours, the hip belt and the lid can be removed completely. Nevertheless, you can still completely close the backpack with a drawstring. The back has various upholstery adjustments that adapt to the spine. Through the gaps and a ventilation channel in the middle of the pad, the air can circulate, preventing heat build-up on the back.
I carry the backpack to a variety of activities because it is just for everything. I particularly like its narrow high shape, which allows you to distribute the weight well along the back. So you do not get too deep, massive sack on the back in full condition. Thanks to its flexibly adjustable carrying system, it sits very stably and firmly on the body even during intensive exercise. I often wore the backpack when it was snowing and raining, and it never let any moisture in.
