New for spring, Arc'teryx completely redesigned their popular Miura backpack to create a fully padded gear bag that is climb specific. Stripped of over 2 lbs in weight, the new Miura now offers plenty of clever storage options to safely and comfortably get all of your climbing gear to and from the crag.
A full zip closure on the Miura enables you to configure it as a top or side access pack, gaining access to just the gear you need. Once at the crag, the Miura can double as a rope bucket or opens completely flat, drawbridge style, to get access to all your gear at once. A small side handle turns the backpack into a nice carry-on for when you are heading out on that climbing trip.
The C² Suspension System places high-density foam on the quick-dry back panel in order to keep the pack close to your body for greater stability. The shoulder straps are padded with closed-cell foam for comfort and lined with mesh fabric for improved ventilation. The Hydroport and Hydra Clip tube make the bag compatible with standard hydration systems (reservoir not included) for water at the crag.
An internal zippered pocket on the Miura is ideal for tape, clippers, files, and other climbing essentials. Dual front zippered pockets will hold your Red Rocks Climber's Guide
and various topo maps.
An internal gear sling keeps all your pro organized, while a top zippered pocket is perfect for safely stowing your keys, phone, wallet, and other small valuables. You can add an external bungee attachment system to the front of the pack to carry your helmet, climbing shoes, or any other extra gear.
Both the Arc'teryx Miura 35L ($189) and 45L ($229) climbing packs come in two different back lengths and are available now.
