One Pack to Rule Them ALL

As someone who recreates and works in the mountain 200+ days a year, I can say this is the most versatile alpine climbing pack I've ever owned. So much so I stocked up on several of them. I've used this for ice climbing, alpine rock, new routing, and as carry-on while traveling. It checks all the boxes!

Excellent pack

Love this pack. Durable, roomy, and comfortable even when loaded down with heavy gear. I've used it for general mountaineering and ice/mixed climbing, both for cragging and for multipitch with longer approaches, and it's been perfect for all of it. Fits everything I need, even bivy gear. I love that I can strip it down for lighter loads by removing the padding on the hip belt, the frame, and compression straps. I wish that I could remove even more, like the entire hip belt webbing and the internal pockets. Overall, I've really enjoyed this pack; solid piece of gear that I'll use for years to come.

Warthog 45L Pack

Best Bag I've ever used

I have spent 300+ nights in the backcountry as a guide. Naturally, I've used a lot of different packs. The Warthog is, by far, the best. It's lightweight and it's space efficiency is remarkable. Everyone in my group had 70L bags that were overflowing. I was able to pack the same amount of stuff (including climbing gear and a rope) into/onto my 45L bag with ease. It feels much more comfortable than an Osprey (with a much better price) and has the durability of a black diamond bag (again, with a much, much better price)

everyday use for 3 years

I bought my warthog about 3 years ago at the start of summer 2019. I've taken it up several mountains in western Canada, to all the crags I've been to since (except maybe a handful of trips where my partner carried all the gear), on a lot of splitboard tours around the Monashees, Selkirks, Rockies and Coast mountains (so many powder turns!!), to big bush parties and on most of my grocery store trips. It's a great bag, it was a bit uncomfortable when I loaded it to the brink up to applebee dome in the bugaboos, but I just brought too much stuff. It's also holding up very well, many other bags would've teared the way I treated it on rock and snow. The only thing that broke is the draw cord around the top, and I don't really need it, if I did I'd just make a new one with some cordelette that could double as tat in a pitch.

I expect this bag to last for a long time and I'm going to be sad the day I have to retire it.
