Black Diamond Touchstone Haul Bag Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

So I've had a touchstone for three years and it's been half way to hell and back with me and is still hanging tough...this is a durable set up...built for uber-abuse. The suspension system is excellent for a Haul bag, which means less suffering (yes you will still suffer it's not an anti gravity haul bag.) If you are someone who has trouble fitting their rack rope and say drill or pitons for first ascent cragging this could be a good choice. When I was putting up some of my Indian Creek FAs last year this was the perfect bag to get everything and the kitchen sink to the base. This is the perfect second or third bag depending on your stay on the wall. WHen you carry loads down or up...the heavy stuff goes in this and the rest goes in the big pig so weights are distributed evently. While this haulbag will not make you walk on water or help you read the minds of your enemies...it will get you to the base of your dream proj. with everything you will need to send HUGE!

A perfect sized haul bag for one-bivy walls or as a second bag on grade VI's. It also holds EVERYTHING you would ever need for a day at the crags too! The stand-up-by-itself design makes it easy to use while its on the ground. The shoulder straps carry OK for a haul bag but I wouldn't go far without slipping a foam pad into the back panel to keep your hardware from poking you in the spine.
This bag lacks the dry-bag closures, sealed seams, and internal daisies featured on other bags but it does have a super handy internal pocket/pouch!

Out standing bag . . . Moving my rack in or out of this guys is a snap. My rack BD C4's #4-.3 and then some. No more fuss with working it into my backpacking bag. Tons of room, 70L got to love it, for layers, water, food and any thing under the sun. Only gripe is the straps . . . could use some more padding! Cant wait to hit the big walls with this guy.

Tried others with many pockets claiming they have found the next best way to organize climbing gear. Sometimes the most simple design is the best. This bag is bombproof and comfortable to wear. Keeps contents dry. I use it going to the gym and the crag and everything in between. Even if you do not intend to use this for climbing, it makes one hell of a conversation piece filled with ice and beverages of choice!

Serves it's purpose well!

Good bag and serves it's purpose well.

Do wish it had a flap over similar to the Metolius. Would be better in wet conditions.

Lotsa room and comfortable to wear on the approach - think this bag will last forever.

Neutral Reviews:

This haul bag definitely does its job. While it may not be as good as the competing Metolius or older A5 bags, this bag is great. The main differences are narrower haulstraps, and the top enclosure system. These differences do not detract from the quality of the bag. This is a great Grave IV bag or like Cedar says below, "If you are someone who has trouble fitting their rack rope and say drill or pitons for first ascent cragging this could be a good choice."
Another note is this bag carries extremely well. Comfortable!

Off the bat: awesome bag but desperately needs load lifters. I packed this thing full with 50 lbs of gear (overstuffed for sure) and had a 3 hour approach through some gnarly off trail terrain. The bag resisted thorns and being thrown around like a suit of armor but my neck and shoulders were killing me, all that are missing are load lifters like its larger siblings.
