Multipitch bag?

Looking at the organic roll down pack, has almost everything I wanted but before I drop $90 I thought I'd ask around. I would love nalgenes pockets (can sew those on to organic pack though), and having a way to carry rope on outside is a must. Room for rack, harness, layers, food, etc.

Spend a little bit more and get one of these. More durable and comfortable while climbing than the Organic.

YES I THINK THAT TUFA, AND THE MASTER OF CERIMONIES THERE - #@ JOSH KORNISH, OFFER THE BEST OPTIONS SHORT OF FISH PRODUCTS>

then I saw this and felt it was worth pointing out , I prefer Mammut products,(Neon), but this is a great pack and a solid deal!

More durable? How so? Even the beefier version of the tufa pack is only 400d nylon whereas the organic bag is 1000d.

I really like the Petzl Bug.  Low profile, daisy chain, rope loop, but best of all...very comfortable.

Tufa uses X-Pac. I'm no fabrics specialist, but my X-50 mochila has held up better than my friends Organic

This is correct, Organic is using 1000d but it's Cordura, the TUFA pack is X-pac.  They are very different. X-pac is much more "technial" (lightweight, abrasian resistant, water resistant) while I wouild describe cordura 1000 as just "burly" and available in every color of the rainbow.

Whatever happened to the good ol' bandana on a stick, Hobo?

In my 1st post I link'd to a "LEADERS" or a pack small enough, to both approach and climb with.  .  .  .  .  .

BUT////////// if you need to shop? is weight and deep side pockets in a roll top,  all you need? 


Granite Gear, makes a minimalist Viga 26   




sam? lets call him Sam,& Sam  is very hard to take, I scroll past all of it to ?! .  .  . oh man ! !?,   Sam is very long winded, , , , 


Skip to 7:10,  Then go back if you can take iy the second pack looks new, , . .  three packs compared, w/ links, 

 





Tough or long lasting depends on the use /abuse that you dish out. Very few packs can stand up . . . To . . . .

Hey, Ammo,

 I rock a BD Stone 45, ive used the same style pack with a side set full access zipper for 30 yrs but I see the simple beauty of these Roll Tops-.(You have to  pack small stuff sacks but I do that anyway)

"organic" pack? like a vegan cage free soy free gluten free pack?

I use the Mammut Neon Speed. It's smaller than the Organic (actually it's pretty tiny), but it has many cool climbing specific features. It rides high on your back, so it doesn't interfere with your harness. It has an external rope attachment, and a expandable helmet pocket that works for approach shoes while climbing. Having a hydration bladder while climbing is great.

The Mammut Neon Speed looks like a similar fit to the Neon Light.  The Neon Light does not fit my back well (too small and feels constricted around the neck and shoulders), but it fits my girlfriend's torso perfectly.  If you have a larger frame, I would try one on before getting something from the Mammut Neon series; otherwise it's a great bag.

I use a Tufa Mochilla when I carry a pack while climbing.  No complaints, nothing but praise for the thing.  It is plenty large for everything you could possibly want on a multi-pitch climb and has no annoying frills or extra weight.  You can even use it as your approach bag if you pack creatively and go relatively light, though (without a real hip belt) it does start to get heavy after a while.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
