    I use this mostly just as a crag bag, I've hauled it up maybe two pitches thus far. I find it quite comfortable to carry. The entire harness dismantles and packs safely away without any drama. The buckles on the arm straps are plastic, so you'll want to pack it away before you drag it up a rock face. Those buckles strike me as the weakest part, but, if you're in hauling mode you really are going to pack away that harness it's not an issue. The top enclosure has no dry bag type sealing system, so in rain water might get in, depending on how you packed it and folded that top flap over. No big deal. It's pretty convenient with it's current opening. I bought this with the intention to use it as a pack I could haul occasionally and for that it's great. I imagine it would be great on big walls, but I have no experience there. If I could change anything it would perhaps be to make the top enclosure more carefree regarding keeping out rain. In short, this bag rocks. Good size for all the gear you'd need in a day out climbing.
