    Awesome pack with way more than 40L

    Comments about Black Diamond Speed 40 Backpack:

    With it's internal drift collar, this pack easily has 60+ liters of storage, but you can strip it down to a super light wieght peak bag that weighs nothing and compresses down to school bag size. All the details are top notch: from the super durable fabric, to the tuck away rop carrier. The Ergo belt and shoulder straps are amazing as well, no restrictions in movement and a super stable suspension all add up to a great. multi purpose alpine pack.

    Comments about Black Diamond Speed 40 Backpack:

    light, expandable, compressable, great gear attatchments (ice tools, 'poons, rope), comfortable

    i like that with my harness on, the waist strap still fits nicely. there seems to be great head room so that when you have your helmet on, you can still look up. it's a pretty great pack.

      Comments about Speed 40 Backpack:

      This pack has yet been used as I have intended on any backcountry excursions, but has proven itself to be a good investment in the two weeks I have owned it. The size (2,400+cu inches) perfectly suits a short business trip which I recently discovered — however my real interest is in it serving as a weekend or overnight pack that holds a 1 person tent, bag, stove, food and clothes. The size appears perfect for this when I load it up and leads me to believe I got more than I paid for. Workmanship looks excellent as does the material used in its construction. I think I'm really going to like this pack. Fully loaded, it still feels like nothing and the slender, vertical packed shape is perfect for active types that enjoy a bouldering, climbing or summit adventure. Love that. Though yet early, I'm thinking this is a really cool pack, well worth what I paid for it.
