The Blue Ice Reach is a running-inspired climber's pack--which makes a lot of since when you consider the many common needs on running and climbers on route. Easy access to your phone/topo, snacks, and hydration is accomplished by the large front strap pockets, which zip shut to prevent spillage if the pack is inverted. A climbing pack also needs to move seamlessly with your movements, and the Reach features unique side flaps that cinch down with the shoulder straps to secure the pack and stop sloshing. Extra gear loops on the side rack up additional pieces when your harness is too crowded. This is an awesome pack for big Eastside ridge traverses where efficiency is everything.
