A streamlined climbing pack built with burly fabrics and trim to withstand abuse on the wall—perfect for lead climbers.
The last thing you need when you’re leading the Scenic Cruise’s delicate Pegmatite Traverse is your pack to shift around while you’re climbing. Sized as a leader’s pack on long routes or a follower’s pack on shorter ones, the Linked Pack has a close-fitting, streamlined profile that shadows your moves without interfering with your motion. The top-loading design provides easy access to your gear at hanging belays via a drawcord closure. An exterior zippered stash pocket keeps smaller items, like a guidebook, topo or your good luck stone from the Red, secure, an adjustable top strap lets you stow a rope or overstuff the pack. Inside, a hydration sleeve holds a reservoir to keep it from shifting when you’re finessing a long runout. The Linked Pack features large reinforced haul handles for added durability and airflow mesh shoulder straps and back panel for breathable all-day comfort on long routes. Made from durable CORDURA® Ballistic nylon for puncture and abrasion resistance and a 200-denier polyester lining. Both fabrics have a polyurethane coating and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
