Strap

Mystery Ranch Tower 47
definitely worth it
Haven't found anything I don't like about the pack, except that I am skinny so the straps are kind of long lol. I've taken it on 3-4 climbing trips now. I love the webbing straps which can secure a stick clip really well, the side handle while I'm at the air port, the top pocket, all the pocket stas...

Pacsafe Vibe 25 ECONYL Pack
A good, solid bag with great anti-theft features
I was asked to review this bag for the REI Product Advisers group. In that framework, REI sent the bag to me and asked me to try it out. Once I received it, I gave it a thorough look through and put it to work.
The bag is lighter than it expected it to be. The material is unfamiliar to me – not t...

Hiking

Mystery Ranch Tower 47
Packs great!
I bought this because my old pack was a bomb pack I had for 15 years. This feels exactly the same but lighter. The obvious upgrade/advantage is this pack is perfectly thought out to be a climbing specific pack. I put it through a very long and steep approach today and it performed beautifully.

Pacsafe Vibe 25 ECONYL Pack

Comfort

Mystery Ranch Tower 47
Best comfort, organization and build quality
I’m pleasantly shocked with my new forever climbing pack! Surprisingly, there are not many reviews to be found about this amazing pack; however, after much research (with a fine toothed comb), I narrowed down my search to this ultimate climbing mule pack / haul bag / crag pack (and more?) -

Pacsafe Vibe 25 ECONYL Pack
Great commuter pack
This pack does everything I need it to: it's comfy (I'm only 5'3 and it didn't feel too big), it's crazy secure (what PacSafe is known for), it looks sleek & cool, it has lots of handy pockets, and it's lightweight.
My only complaints are that it's kinda hard to get big stuff to fit (it gets larger...

Zipper

Mystery Ranch Tower 47
Phenomenal layout and features!
Love the layout and features. All the internal pockets and gear loops make for easily organizing my climbing gear. Top load and side load option is great. The heavy duty zippers and 1000D Cordura should last for years to come.
