      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Pack w/ Frame 55L-70L

Recommended Posts

I climb with a CCW Chernobyl but lately after a day in the hills carrying rope and gear I am finding the lack of frame is just killing my back.

Any suggestions for packs with a frame in this size range (3300ci-4000 ci) for alpine climbing and up to 3 days out? How are Ospreys?

 

thanks

Try to find a Khamsin 62 used. They were good, light, and well priced. If you can get your volume down, or don't mind side pockets, the arc'teryx Nozone is great: 3300 cubic inches, or 55 litres, tow 7075 stays (flex in the cold) and good features: swap the hipbelt for a webbing one, floating crampon patch is very handy, pretty durable.

 

But for the best priced pack in the range, check out

www.mec.ca - you'll be amazed by the quality of affordable gear.
