The Arete 45 is packed with features to help you tame your chosen route. The addition of a removable crossbar load transfer frame improves the comfort of the pack during the walk when loads are higher, but without hindering any movement on the climb.

Another really useful feature is built into the hipbelt; the finger grip belt allows you to push the gear loops of your harness through, meaning you can wear the hipbelt and access your harness at the same time.

Excellent Modern Pack
Reviewed By Sam, 09 May 2014

Good size for a large day sack or leaders pack. 45L allows me to fit all the group kit for a full day walk, or all my own stuff for an overnighter with some group kit thrown in.

There is more than one model of this product, though I think the picture shown is the one currently shipping, mine has large ice axe holders instead of the multiple overkill number of clips on the one in the picture, so have a look in store see what fits your needs.

The only thing i'd change is that since it doesn't have a rigid back, you can easily get a sweaty back if you don't layer well.



Lightweight, Tough and Roomy Daysack
Reviewed By Ryan , 22 Feb 2014

This daysack is a great little investment, designed for climbing, it has all the loops, straps and pockets a climber could need for all their climbing gear. The lightweight material it is made from makes the daysack almost weightless, the material is also tough and is covered in an even tougher material on the bottom, to stop it getting dirty. The hood of the daysack is fastened with 2 straps, easy to release and fasten, between the hood and the drawcord of the main compartment is a strap that is designed for a climbing helmet, which comes in handy when climbing or just when you want to carry something large. The shape of the daysack is thin at the bottom and wider at the top, this fits the body perfectly and distributes the weight evenly, the hip belts help to keep the pack attached and in position on your back. The back system on this pack is lightweight, however is well padded and the shape of it allows your body to breathe.
Having taken this daysack to Malaysia in the height of summer, i can thoroughly recommend this daysack as a great pack for all round general outdoor activities, due to it's good size, weight and strong construction.



Superb all-round daysack
Reviewed By Monty, 21 Feb 2014

Summer walking: I have completed a walking challenge up in Scotland. Throughout I found this bag to be incredibly versatile; having easy access clips made opening and closing easy with numb and slippery fingers. The volume ensured it was small enough to not to become irritating and cumbersome and yet was large enough to carry up to 2 days’ worth of kit plus group shelter.
Ice climbing: Again, the size ensured that I had enough room for crampons, helmet and jacket. The side straps made storing the axes very easy and convenient to carry. Even for all the scratches from rocks, crampons, and axes it received, it still refused to show sign of wear-and-tear. The big front buckle made it easy to take on and off with gloves.
Running: The side straps and elastic strap meant that this bag became very small very quickly. This enabled me to run an ultra-marathon with it because of the secure bladder pocket and weight.
Downpoints: Circulation: when I used it for summer walking and running, I found the circulation of air on the back quite limited and so it got very warm (not ideal when in a humid place) though just adding cold water to the bladder can help and when in the cold it reduces bulkiness and creates wanted insulation. Axes can slip: I found that when walking my axes would slip either down and look untidy or on to the back of my head, though this could be down to poor technique on my part. Lack of padding: even though the shoulder straps are ergonomically shaped and quite wide, they did start to dig in after 6 or 7 hours walking but not to the extent that I’d need ice at the end of the trip. Chest strap: I like a very close chest strap and high hip belt on my bags, and the elasticated chest strap made it just a tad too loose (I have a 38 inch chest) on the uphill.
Overall: I have done a lot of challenges (I’m a very active teenager!) with this bag and throughout I have found it great as someone who only wants one bag for all occasions, and after some of the beating it has taken it only now has one small rip which I mended with needle and thread.
