Black Diamond Bolt Pack.
Make your outdoor adventure enjoyable with the Black Diamond Bolt Pack. It gives outdoor adventurers the support they need for their long journey. Featuring the reACTIV suspension, this pack provides greater comfort and allows you to move easier with more freedom and flexibility. Since its shoulder straps and waist belt distributes and balances your load across more muscle groups, the upper body can be rotated naturally with your gait and there's less stress on the knees and ankles. This means your energy is less wasted. For comfort and ventilation, the pack is equipped with an OpenAir backpanel. Aside for comfort, the Bolt Pack also offers a variety of compartments and storage. It has a top-loading main compartment with a side zip access, a trekking pole/ice axe loops, stretch pockets on the front, side, and hipbelt, and an external hydration sleeve. You can even keep your raincover inside its raincover pocket. Lastly, the pack includes a bike light clip so you can be easily seen. Whether it's an epic trail to 14,000 ft. summit in Colorado, day-long via ferrata in Italy, or a rainy bike commute home in Norway, this 24 L. pack is ready to carry your gear. Venture into the outdoors with the Black Diamond Bolt Pack.
This product can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

-full suspension makes it comfortable
-The longer shoulder straps make it more accommodating to larger guys (6'1" 230lbs)
It's a good size for a technical day of climbing or overnight trip. Holds rope or rack, plus personal gear, food, water
-It climbs well because it's narrow and flexible. We use it as a second pack with two jackets, two pairs of shoes, food, water, misc. kit
-The stretch front pocket makes things like a guide book easy to get to.
-It's fabric is a little tougher than other packs I've tried
-Stays cool on back
- Can carry helmet on the outside pretty well via the side straps
- works for light multi-day backpacking, hiking and climbing
-Heavy for such a small pack. Can't strip the frame out
-The side zipper is pretty useless and adds another failure point
- The lid isn't removable (however this makes lid secure and tight when not fully loaded)
- not easy to attach technical ice tools
- The large size offers the most comfort for taller people, but does get in the way with a harness on (most packs do though).
-Can't carry skis
-the pack cover pocket in the bottom is pretty silly
Overall, one of the most comfortable packs I've owned. It's a really good size for technical alpine routes. Cold Cold world or Alpine thread works would possibly be a better option if you want something lighter, but they lack some convenient features, cost more, require waiting for delivery and are a little too big for my needs. This pack replaced my Cilo gear 30L which was one of the most uncomfortable and annoying packs ever (made for small, skinny people?). The speed 22 is too small and the speed 30 has that annoying dry bag closure.
I'd highly recommend this pack, or any Black Diamond pack for that matter. I love the reActive support. It's very comfortable and breathable. The hydration sleeve keeps me quenched and it also has side pockets which I use for an extra water bottle. It's just the size I was looking for. Plus the side access makes it a breeze to get something that's buried in the pack
