As with mountaineering, the climbing backpack must meet precise specifications. The mountaineering backpack combines lightness and resistance, its accessorization is refined but not null and it is possible to hang equipment without the risk of hanging on the wall. To be as ergonomic as possible, your backpack should not exceed a volume of 35L, at the risk of unbalancing yourself during your progression. One of the key criteria when choosing your climbing bac kpack is its opening. Opt for a full opening so that you can easily and quickly access your equipment without emptying the whole rucksack.
In order to make the right choice, one must ask oneself:
- for what use and
- for how long the backpack will be worn (climbing, storage of equipment, sport climbing, big wall).
It is also important to plan the amount of material that will need to be carried in the climbing backpack.
