I can't say enough about this this pack. 9 out of 10 packs that you see at the store are all the same. This pack is number 10. Your messy chalk bag goes into its own zippered pocket. Your draws go on one gear loop, your cams on another. Shoes go into their own compartment and you can see whether or ... Read More

    I purchased the small/medium and it is big enough to get most of my climbing gear inside, but it's hard to fit my harness and shoes in with the rope and draws already in there. you also don't have much room for anything else (lunch, first aid, etc.) That said the pack is otherwise perfect. Zippers are huge with little resistance , it has zippers pockets on the hip belt (all packs should have these) and it most importantly is comfortable. Just wish it was a little bigger.

    Have not used it yet, but I can tell this pack is amazing. Feels great on and it definitely lives up to the great reviews elsewhere. I would only point out two things:

    First, it is super heavy duty, which is great because I am thinking this thing will last forever. But, it is also unusually heavy in weight (feels like it weights close to 4 pounds). So I think this pack is probably best suited to short to moderate approach single pitch.

    Second, please note that it comes it two sizes. My friend got the large and it is quite a bit larger. He is 6'-1 and it fits him well; if you are short it might be too big. Also, some of the photos i have seen show orange trim and some yellow. Im not sure if it correlates with size, but, our small has yellow trim and the large one I saw had orange.

    Use this backpack for rock climbing and its really a great deal. Very confortable for long approaches and easy to re-pack when moving to another climbing area.

Your draws go on one gear loop, your cams on another. Shoes go into their own compartment and you can see whether or not if you forgot that right foot shoe. Unzip the panel and have access to everything. Open the rope tarp and throw everything onto it. Bar none this the best organizing pack available.

    I don't own a car, and was looking for a well-constructed pack with good internal organization and moderate to large capacity that I could use for my work commute. Basically something that could handle a change of clothes and shoes, a laptop, my lunch, possibly a stop at the grocery store on the way home, and double as a travel/hiking pack for weekend trips. The Splitter 38 was almost perfect for all these functions. The sole drawback (and actually why I ultimately chose to return the pack) is that while it is perfectly designed for hikers, it rides too high on the back to be useful for biking, since the top of the pack kept jamming into my helmet. Nonetheless, I would definitely recommend this pack as a thoughtfully designed, well manufactured piece of equipment that probably fulfills its intended functions perfectly.
