Quick Overview

The Ragged Mountain Waxed Cotton Crag Pack is a full-performance climbing pack, but with a certain retro appeal. The waxed cotton provides serious water- and weather-resistance via more time-tested means, and its classic look definitely improves with time. Features include a zippered top pocket with key clip, removable foam pad, ripstop extension sleeve, dual ice axe loops with daisy chains above, reinforced nylon base and crampon patch, leather lash-points, comfortable mesh shoulder straps, and a removable hipbelt. It's perfect for rock climbing, nordic skiing, or just plain commuting from home to work to gym.

Our Waxed Cotton Crag Pack uses a perfect combination of traditional and updated materials and design in a supremely functional pack that just happens to look great. Based on our beloved Crag Pack design, we've tapped into the inherent weather resistance of wax-impregnated cotton canvas, choosing the fabric favored by motorcycle racers, seafarers, and Himalayan expeditions of the last century. The waxed cotton develops a beautiful "lived-in" look over time and use, and takes on a certain character that we usually associate with nicely broken-in leather. And, like all Ragged Mountain gear, it's made right here in New Hampshire, not shipped in from some faraway land.
A beefy extra layer of 1000-denier nylon reinforces the base and the top pocket crampon patch, while nylon webbing straps secure the lid, attach the shoulder straps, and provide daisy-chain attachment points to the outside. Two ice axe loops and a top haul loop ensure full function for modern climbing, and the padded mesh shoulder straps make for a soft and comfortable carry. The Crag Pack's hipbelt is removable, and there is a ripstop extension sleeve at the top in case you need to cram still more gear inside. The top pocket has a roomy zippered compartment for easy access to essential items, and there's a key clip inside so you don't have those awkward moments at the trailhead or in the parking garage.
Leather attachment points on each side can be custom-rigged for skis, trekking poles, or even your umbrella if you're using your Crag Pack around town during the week. A closed-cell foam pad is tucked in a slot to protect your back from hard, lumpy cargo, and that same slot serves as a cushioned place to stow your tablet. Or, remove the pad and use it to improve your seat on a granite ledge, or in the stadium.
Equally well-suited for use on the cliff or around campus, the Waxed Cotton Crag Pack has its own distinctive style, but it never compromises on the hard-core performance for which it was originally designed. If you're tired of lugging around some fancy-label backpack that looks just like everyone else's and doesn't even do the job, then this is the rucksack you've been looking for.
