|Carries load comfortably. Excellent capacity. I carry full rack (doubles on most sizes), 10 draws, 4-5 24" to 48" slings, shoes, harness, helmet, chalkbag, snacks, rain jacket, 2x Nalgene bottles or 1 camelback bladder (has interior pocket with separate access for bladder), and guidebook with ease. Can also fit 60m 10.1mm rope if needed (I usually split rope/rack with partner). Split panel design means easy access to everything. Rugged--can be abused. Convenient pockets and pouches. Metal clips on ice tool keeper cords function moderately well as bottle openers.|
|Half moon zipper on interior mesh pocket allows stuff to fall out. Not a huge issue as there is another mesh pocket with horizontal zipper underneath it.|
|ArcTeryx Miura packs are similar, but slightly smaller. I tested both out at the shop and decided on the Splitter. Very content with it.|
