The Freerider Rucksack is a great climbing pack for a day at the crag. It is built from a lighter version of Metolius' Durathane material. The haul-bag-style rand adds durability and allows the bag to stand up for easy access to your gear while the tapered shape facilitates easy loading. This pack features lid storage that is accessible from both inside and outside the pack. The closure system employs a strong aluminum buckle and forms a tuck-away pocket for convenient guidebook storage. The plush, padded harness system makes long approaches with large racks more bearable.
