Hey Miura owners...because of the clamshell opening, do you always end up setting the backpanel down in the dirt/snow? That's the last part of the pack that I'd be interested in getting dirty/wet! Any gripes with that design in particular?

This problem haunted my dreams for 6 years after f...
Yes. I wasn't sure I would dig that design either, but when it opens up and everything is so readily accessable, it's worth it. My prior pack was a toploader and I had to always dump everything onto the ground to get what I needed anyway, which in my mind is worse.

anyone following this thread??

I saw the Miura 50L in action this past weekend, really like the features but wondered if the 30 would be big enough.. I assume the 30 and 50 have the same features? I dont have access to this pack locally.. I like the fact that the Pali rope bag fits inside the 50 but wondered if it would also fit in the 30 if only carrying a sport rake- I would have to get the tall if that makes any difference.

The Pali Rope Bag fits inside the Miura 50 in just the bottom, so yes, it would fit in a Miura 30, but not exactly like it was intended to in the 50.

You could definitely fit a rope (regardless of what it's in) and a sport gear in a Miura 30. If you look at the volumes for each pack, it looks as if the Pali Rope Bag will take roughly half of your space up, leaving enough for sport gear and maybe a little extra.

My climbing partner has the 30 in Large and he loves it for sport cragging - Rope, draws, harness, couple pairs of shoes, and some food/water.

Great pack. My one gripe is that the hydration sleeve is way too tight. I have to wrap my 2L bladder in a slick tech fabric to get it to slide into the pocket. Other than that incredibly well engineered. Trad climbers need the 50. 30 probably perfect for a sport rack of draws.

Couple years into ownership now, thoroughly pleased with this. I got a good discount when I purchased it, but if I had to replace it wouldn't fret over the retail, it's worth it (and I'm a cheap bastard)

For guys owning the Pali and the Miura... does the Pali rope bag worth it or any other rope bag can do the job???

I keep getting close to pulling the trigger and backing off for fear and space. I wish local shop carried it!!

Hey bobmirko-I own the Miura w/Pali bag, and i stuff a 70 m Sterling Velocity 9.8 in it, and I think it's a pretty awesome set up. I haven't tried to stuff a Metolius rope bag in the bottom, I just went for the Miura/Pali combo. It's kinda tight with stuffing a 70 m, but I wouldn't go any other way-the Pali is shaped perfectly to fit in the bottom of the pack! I do mostly trad approach/cragging, and I really haven't seen any other set up that can rival what you get with the Miura/Pali combo-highly recommended!

I've been playing with mine around the house...haven't taken it to the crag yet cause I'm still debating keeping it.

Tall 55L version.
First thoughts:
Very heavy!
Incredibly well made with BURLY fabric/zippers/straps
Yep, 55L for sure...it's huge!

Fearing not enough space? Granted mine is the 55L, but really you can fit a rope, double rack, and all your personal gear plus helmet inside.

My metolius rope bag with a 9.7 60 fits great in the bottom.

Gripes:
The water bladder sleeve (or rather, lack-there-of) is ridiculous and should've never been let past the cutting room floor.
Lack of compression straps for the main body of the pack. If you have a 30L load in the 50L pack, everything sits in the very bottom ie. not well distributed.

Likes:
I'll echo everything that has been said here already: A very well-designed and constructed crag pack with a suspension that will comfortably carry whatever you put into it!

Thanks Scott, now just size decisions- reg vs. tall

squiddo...I was gonna add about sizing but I had momentarily forgot my torso length. I'm pretty sure I'm a 20.5 and the tall actually feels a tad too...tall! I was surprised as every other pack I've always been the biggest size, and even then some don't quite fit. But Arcteryx is one of the few companies that offer a true tall pack.

Of note I have an Arcteryx Axios 50 in Tall and it fits great. The Muira is unique b/c they offer three sizes, vs. two for the Axios. Their website showed a great sizing chart (couldn't find it again) that showed the overlap of the Muira's sizing. I think at 20.5 I am right on the cusp of Reg or Tall.

Yeah, my local shop doesn't carry it either. We have an REI somewhat close by and I used my dividend plus 20% off and got this mail ordered to me. I figured I'd return it to the store if needed. I'm gonna need to try the Reg size, though, so its back to the drawing board. Luckily, another 20% off coupon just showed up in the mail:)

Scott-

yeah I finally found the sizing on the Arc site and discovered the Med/Reg fits me best though I'm close....21". I could have fit the Tall but its gonna be close. That and I grabbed a great deal on one:-) Bought it.

Was the deal on the Arcteryx site? I'm sort of looking for an excuse to replace a perfectly good Nozone.

I found the sizing chart here:
arcteryx.com/pack-fit.aspx?EN#...

Large is 20"+
Med is 18-21"

I think I'll be getting this soon. I'm so sick of top loading packs

Thanks, I actually took a look at both the 50L and the 30L and I think I'm headed toward the 30. I prefer the rope on the outside of the pack and I'm thinking if I get stuck climbing with this, I'd prefer the smaller size.

I'm 6'1" and the Regular 50L fits perfect. The large is too long in the back for me. The Miura hip belt is very nice, in fact, probably the best fitting hip belt I've ever had in a pack. My next alpine pack will probably be an Arcteryx.

Yes, if you plan to put the rope outside you have to go with the 30... but I store my rope (9.2X70) in my 50, in a regular rope tarp and it works perfectly it just take 2 or 3 inch higher in the pack than the fit we see in the Arcteryx video of the Miura.

I recently got this pack (50) and did a review of it: rockclimberlife.com/arcteryx-m...

Some of you may find this useful if you are on the fence about this pack.

re is this a carry-on:

It fits in the over head with 2 70 meter 10mm ropes inside it
This is one bomber pack, I winced at the price since I am cheap. but all Arcteryx gear is expensive for a reason:
that shit lasts forever...

plus that cool logo is hard to draw

buy this pack you will not regret it

Ed

>>>>>>>
Can you travel with a Muira 50 as a carry-on on a typical cross country flight?

Does it fit over head or under the seat?

Tired of my top-loader...

ADDENDUM: I looked at the Arcteryx site, and looking at the pack on the model's back it sure doesn't look like a carry-on. Never mind. The 30 maybe...

No, the 50 is too big for this purpose

My GF have the 30 and it look big, I think it will not be soo good...

You need a pack of around 20-25 liters to do that and not get problems with airlines (that what I do...)

I usually take one of these and put all my stuff in it:

Hope this help!
