Black Diamond Magnum Reviews:


Overall, it looks like a very well thought out pack. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm sure it will smush up into my suitcase with no trouble; actually I'll probably just lay it flat. The back panel has a nice airy foam pad to help air move between you and the pack, but it you're hoofing it in the heat, I doubt it will stop you from soaking. The side stretch pockets are a bit too small to securely carry water bottles. The old style was better (this is why four stars).
Nit pick: the front web compression strap differs from the old style (and many other bags) by using really thin, narrow webbing vice shock cord; this looks cool out of the packaging, but cinching it up a time or two tends to twist the webbing and the appearance is not as nice. A decent shot at aesthetic innovation that won't stand the test, I'm betting. On the other hand, the webbing will continue to function well I think, and you don't have to replace shock cord that has lost its stretchiness.
Overall, I'm pretty happy. The new Magnum shows a lot of promise. I'd say it's probably a bit larger bag than I need, but I seem to end up carrying things for LB and daughters on vacation so maybe that's good.

I used this pack on a free solo of an ice climb in Pinnacle Gully, Mt Washington. In it I had: A 30 m 8mm rope, 30 m of 4 mm (pull line), MH phantom Jacket, extra pair of gloves, 500 ML water bottle, Headlamp, 2 ice screws, belay device, v-thread tool, several cords for v-threads and a few biners and slings. I had my crampons and ice tools strapped on for the approach. Forget about the elastic cord. The only thing is might hold is a layer that you shed (fleece, etc). While climbing, I didn't even know I had the pack on. The only complaint is the waist belt. One, the buckles didn't hold and both sides fell off in the trunk of my car. I had to tie small knots at the ends so it didn't happen while wearing it. I have a 34" waist and the belt just fit over my light winter layer (heavy base layer and single layer goretex). The waist belt should be longer and the ends sewn so it doesn't fall off.
BTW, It IS hydration compatible even though it says "no" to the left. It has an inside sleeve and an opening for the tube.

Great Commuter daypack

I use it for commuting. It fits a 13" laptop (barely) with enough room for lunch and a power cable. I don't think you could fit many textbooks for school, but it's great if you like to travel pretty light, and don't like carrying around a 35L backpack that's always half-empty. The front of the backpack is a little narrower than the back, so even though the laptop fits great once it's inside, it can be hard to squeeze it in there. The zipper on the front is a little hard to use, but the pocket is great. The side pocket openings are angled which looks cool, but small items (keys/phone) can fall out of them. Other than that, I would buy it again.

My most used and nearly perfect pack!

I have used this pack every day for the last 8 months. No signs of wear at all. It's my go to bag for weekend excursions, day hikes, vacations, my daily commute to work and even grocery shopping! It is narrow so it doesn't restrict movement. It's small hip belt is unnoticeable when not in use but it stays in place when climbing or running. It's incredibly lightweight for its size and construction. Only when I got trekking for more than 3-4 days do I take a bigger pack, but if Black Diamond made one exactly the same but in a 24L I would never buy another bag again.

This bag is comfortable and is definitely well made. I have found that is is a great bag once packed, however these are the downsides I have experienced: 1) I wish the internal "for keys" pocket was slightly bigger. 2) My 13" laptop fits in the pouch, but is a pain to get in and out. The asymmetrical zipper doesn't allow the top flap of the backpack to roll out of the way. 3) It is easy for a water bottle to fall out of the side pockets. With all that said, I am happily keeping the bag. It's a great price and I'm adaptable to the glitches.

great for the reason I bought it

I purchased this bag as a walkabout bag to put in my checked bag so I wouldn't have to clean out my carry-on and risk a problem at security, and it has done so admirably...It carries all I need on a day's excursion- water bottle, rain shell, fleece, snacks, and a book and iPod... I can fit a netbook in the hydration bladder slot as well without difficulty.. I am looking for more excuses to use this!

I've had it for a few months using it for taking my climbing shoes to the gym and going on day hikes. Its nicely put together with a very strong material. The straps and back are made it a different material that makes the pack very vented so you don't have a sweaty back.
I'd buy it again its a great pack. It looks good, works well, durable, what else do yea want?

Black Diamond Magnum

I'm actually in Yosemite right now using this pack. I used it for a quick hike up Mist Trail, it was very convenient. It fits a camelback nicely. On the way back down Mist Trail I was able to run down without any movement of the pack.
Nick at Campmor on 04/04/2011

I like this pack: Light, comfortable, and fits everything I need for a 10-mile (or more) day in the woods. I have mostly been using it for day hikes and longer trail runs. The cinch straps work great for compressing the pack.

Awesome for hiking and biking!

I would buy this bag again and again. But I won't have to because it's well-made. And comfortable. And everything I was looking for in a bag for biking to work--it's even got a slot for a bike light.
