With climbing specific features like rope tarps, mesh pockets, and a bucket design, the new Multi-Pitch backpacks are ready for climbing.
When the Outdoor Retailer gear convention opens in Salt Lake City on July 25, Mountain Hardwear will be on hand to reveal a host of new products, including a line of backpacks designed specifically for rock climbers.
The line of backpacks will consist of three models, the Multi-Pitch 16, 25, and 40.
As is typical with any backpack, the number in its name indicates the amount of storage capacity it offers as measured in liters.
That should translate to a very durable bag that can be used and abused around a campsite, hiking to and from the crag, and while actually climbing the wall.
The packs will feature daisy-chain attachments for securing a helmet or other important gear, and Mountain Hardwear’s designers have integrated reflective elements to help make them more visible in low-light conditions too.
