If you were the head of design at a company that made the finest climbing harnesses, had access to all sorts of bomber fabric and components, and wanted to have the baddest crag pack in the land, this is what you would make. The Gorge Pack was conceived and developed to handle loads trekked miles into wilderness, climbing cliffs, double ropes, extra cams, extra water, extra food and room to spare for some bivy gear. Built for unsurpassed function and durability, the Gorge Pack features a large, funnel shaped opening which loads easily and quickly secures via drawstring closure. A full length, heavy duty zipper allows you quick and easy access, even to items buried in the bottom. Handy outside pockets easily handle loose items, and a crafty lid hidden in a zippered compartment sheds light mist and allows an extra rope to be carried. Direct suspension holds load close to torso for better balance along mountainous terrain. Wide belt and shoulder straps and generous padding provide load carriage comfort without bulk.
