REI Pinnacle 35 Pack - $89.93

Gear of the Year! Climbing Magazine's 2012 Gear Guide: "With just enough straps and pockets to serve your needs, but with nothing extraneous, the Pinnacle is built for any sport that involves ascent.". The REI Pinnacle 35 pack is perfect for single-day climbs and a multitude of mountain activities. Take it on summit scrambles, multipitch crags, and backcountry approaches. Pack's compact stature belies its beefy suspension and solid materials-this little guy is a true mountain pack designed for heavy loads. Removable hipbelt and framesheet lets you strip down the pack to save weight and match the needs of your adventure. Perforated shoulder strap foam allows body vapor to pass through and evaporate; molded foam back panel handles abuse and delivers comfort. Roll-top closure and internal compression collar offer great weather resistance and easy closure; side-zip access allows easy retrieval of items buried deep in the pack. Internal gear loops make it easy to rack and sort climbing gear; lash points let you secure bulky gear to the pack's exterior. Hydration sleeve accommodates a reservoir (sold separately); tube port lets you route the bite valve over either shoulder. Burly front pocket stores crampons and a jacket. Wand pocket is generously sized to also store small items like gloves and hats; exterior zippered pocket also keeps small items handy. Removable rope straps provide a stable attachment point for ropes; dedicated ski-tail loops and cam-lock buckles securely hold skis. Snow-specific buckles work well with gloves and help prevent snow from clogging. - $89.93
