Sized as a leader’s pack on long routes or a follower’s pack on shorter ones, the Linked Pack has a close-fitting, streamlined profile that shadows your moves without interfering with your motion. The top-loading design provides easy access to your gear at hanging belays via a drawcord closure. An exterior zippered stash pocket keeps smaller items, like a guidebook, topo or your good luck stone from the Red, secure; an adjustable top strap lets you stow a rope or overstuff the pack. Inside, a hydration sleeve holds a reservoir to keep it from shifting when you’re finessing a long runout. The Linked Pack features large reinforced haul handles for added durability and airflow mesh shoulder straps and back panel for breathable all-day comfort on long routes. Made from durable CORDURA Ballistic nylon for puncture and abrasion resistance and a 200-denier polyester lining. Both fabrics have a polyurethane coating and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
