Before going to
work, the SLIPSTREAM is the pack I run hills with
most weekdays. It has near perfect balance (better
than I) and zero load shift - up, down or sideways
- just what we need for active motion sports like
climbing. It is also my choice as a simple, no
nonsense, bells-and-whistles-be-damned lead, follow,
summit & descend pack.
At just 12 oz, it holds all my essentials without
holding me back: 17 lbs of rope, rack, shoes and
water. It is the lightest of the JET PACK series,
fully functional, weather tight and - like it's
burlier brothers - climbs as hard as you do. Use
for alpine climbs, ice climbs and as an expedition
summit pack. Stash a wind shirt or water bladder
in the pad pocket - depending on your need. Lead
and follow without even thinking about what's
on your back!
Each SLIPSTREAM is crafted from
lightweight, tear resistant and waterproof fabric
and fitted with hydrophobic polyester webbing.
Seams are stitched, taped and stitched again...
and all straps are well anchored with a bar tack.
The SLIPSTREAM sports padded shoulder straps,
an internal zippered mesh smart phone/security
pocket and a removable foam pad. You can anchor
your water bag to the strap at the top of the
pad pocket and simply route the hose out the zipper
- right, left or center. Carry all your essential
personal gear with you - there's space
for water, a snack, wind & rain gear, headlamp
and two pairs of approach shoes (or big puffy
and mitts for ice climbs).
Take the pad out (easy) and the pack rolls up
to the size of a 12" Subway - to stow in
haul bag or luggage. Expedition climbers: use
as your carry-on... then to compress your sleeping
bag or as a giant "piggy-back pocket"
- clipped and buckled - around your mountaineering
pack. On route, it makes a perfect summit and
leaders pack. If you are primarily a rock climber,
check our our burly JET PACK
- full featured and abrasion resistant to boot.
