    Mountain Hardwear Via Rapida 35 Backpack - The Via Rapida Backpack by Mountain Hardwear is a compact, light and versatile pack that is a top choice for the all around alpinist. The flexible design concept allows suspension and bag components to be removed significantly reducing weight when not needed. Versatile Alpine suspension provides outstanding stability, comfort and support. The Alpine Compression Strap System, with glove-friendly buckles, secures overloads, effectively shrinks pack to minimal volume, and tucks away inside front panel pocket when not needed. A skirt extension adds 250 cu inches - 4 liters, of carrying capacity when needed. The FlapTop design allows the pack to be used without the top lid with no compromise in compression or weather-protection. Finally, the durable Dyneema front panel offers lash points for all kinds of mountaineering gear. When you are in the market for a versatile, durable pack that can do it all, look no further than the Via Rapida Backpack by Mountain Hardwear.

    I have used this pack doing some winter climbs-both day trips and overnights. It has carried 35lb loads with no problem, and hugs the body when climbing. I am impressed with the pack so far. The only gripes I have are pretty minor-I wish there were gear loops on the hip-belt, I had to add my own. Also, the buckles on the back of the top lid are placed poorly-the straps keep loosening up because the angle is wrong, should have been set lower. I fixed this by replacing these buckles with the camming ones that are on the front. All in all a great pack.
