Pros Large carrying capacity, comfortable backpack straps, padded back panelLarge removable tarp, comfortable backpack straps, useful compression strapsSleek design, padded laptop sleeve, nice tarpWorks as a cragging pack, padded shoulder straps are suprisingly comfortable, big tarp, nice zippered pocketEasy to roll up rope, big tarp, compressible
Cons Awkward to pack with too little or too much gear, lacks adjustabilityThin fabric, not as durable as other modelsExpensive, not great outdoors, single carrying strapPackabilityNo smaller pockets, not as nice to carry for long distances
Bottom Line The Crag is a well-padded bag with plenty of space for a full day of craggingExcellent rope bag for cragging and long approachesPerfect for those who only climb indoorsThe Speedster does its job as a rope bag well, while also functioning as a basic small cragging packAn improved version of an older version of a rope bag, with a much larger tarp
