Black Diamond designed its Speed Zip 24 Backpack to be the one climbing pack you need whether you're hiking sandstone at the Creek, or skiing snowy peaks in Cascadia. Its zippered clamshell top gives easy access to climbing gear and extra layers, while the ice tool PickPockets and snag-free crampon straps secure your mountaineering essentials. Sporting a bare bones alpine-specific design, the Speed Zip can be stripped down even more by virtue of the removable hipbelt, framesheet, and foam bivy pad . Chances are good you'll have this pack stuffed to the gills with gear when you venture into the alpine, so BD added a hydration compatible sleeve, so you won't have to try to stuff water bottles and bladders in with the rest of your climbing gear.
