One of the joys of rock climbing is getting high off the ground. The exhilarating exposure and incredible views give you a chance to see the world from a whole different perspective, both figuratively and literally. One of the challenges, though, is trying to remain comfortable and safe while spending the day a few hundred feet off the ground. A rock climbing backpack helps overcome this problem by giving you a way to carry the food, water, and gear necessary to keep you happy and alive.
We offer transportation bags with different capacity as well as Petzl BUG bags. The BUG was specifically designed for multi-pitch long routes climbed in a single day. Its rounded-edge rectangular shape maximizes volume and minimizes interference while in use. Suitable for carrying gear on the approach and when climbing (hydration system, food, clothing, shoes). Everything has been designed for maximum comfort while climbing with the BUG on the back: minimal bulk, shoulder straps allowing freedom of arm movement, comfortable and ventilated back panel, foldaway waistbelt, high positioning for access to back of harness (for chalk bag, gear), side compression straps.
Side compression straps allow the pack to be compressed, keeping the contents secure while climbing and allow you to carry a jacket on the outside. Rectangular shape with rounded corners make a great balance of volume and shape provides plenty of room for gear without interfering with your climbing and reduces wear from abrasion.
