You can use this bag for carrying all your rock climbing gear. It keeps that stuff organized, it's comfortable to load and has plenty of spots on the outside for clipping additional equipment.
The Neon 45 has a rectangular shape. The top panel unzips on three sides and folds wide open for easy packing. You can open the pack even with the rope attached to the top. The two pockets allow you to organize your pack content: one on the outside and a mesh inner pocket with gear loop.
The bottom is highly protective, and the bag's overall rugged build makes it bombproof for the outdoors. The aluminum frame is light and adjustable.
The anatomically padded back panel and the shoulder straps covered with soft, moisture-wicking stretch fabric, keep your back comfortable and dry.
The second way to open the Neon 45 is to lay the pack down and unzip the back panel. The back opening has a circular zip allowing an easy access to the contents at the bottom, without unpacking anything at all.
A mesh pouch on the inside back panel adds a functional storage compartment for climbing shoes, or clothing. Due to its 45-liter rectangular shape, the pack has a capacity that is much larger than it looks. You can pack all the necessary for a day or multiple days trip. It easily fits in rope bag, harness, shoes, jacket, helmet, large rack, bottles and food. The integrated rope bag can be removed and spread out on the ground to protect from dirt. An external daisy chain and gear loops create attachment points for additional equipment. Jackets, helmets and rope are easily strapped to the outside with the V strap at the top.
The hydration-compatible design lets you drink when needed.
The backpack is very comfortable to wear and makes carrying a heavy load a lot easier.
