Crux AK47-X RT Climbing Rucksack
Crux have updated their classic AK47 alpine rucksack with a floating, removable lid (great for overstuffing with a huge load on the approach, then stripping the bag down for the climb) and a fully waterproof roll top closure, undoubtedly making this the very best pack on the market.
The Crux AK47is large enough yet light enough for multi-day epics. The fabric contains 40% Kevlar, making it incredibly durable, and all the seams are welded making the bag highly water-resistant. Of course, water will still get in through the top of the bag, but just not through the sides.
Structure and back support is provided by a malleable titanium frame - this is removable if you want to trim the weight right down for climbing, but it does make the AK47 more comfortable if you have a long walk with a heavy load. A massive haul loop is easy to grab onto and clip in. Apparently, this rucksack is so strong you can even stand in it while it's clipped to the belay, a feature that hopefully you won't need to use, but it's good to know you have that option!
