The rigors of rock climbing trips are among the most intense of any outdoor activity, and Mountain Hardwear's new Multi-Pitch bags are specifically designed to handle whatever the precipice can throw at them. The rugged, durable bags promise to be effective pieces of equipment throughout every stage of a climb, keeping climbers confident in the safety of all the gear they're storing inside.
As on any outdoor trip, a broken pack on a climbing excursion can spell disaster. Though bags themselves have little inherent value, broken packs mean that trippers can't carry everything they need — and in the middle of a trip through the wilderness, that can be a very serious problem. Fortunately, the Multi-Pitch bags are unlikely to break, with solid stitching and vinyl panels that can withstand significant scrapes and blows.
