About Black Diamond Speed 55 Pack

Black Diamond Speed 55 Pack
The Black Diamond Speed 55 Pack is a multi-day climbing pack that can be stripped down for light-and-fast missions. The Black Diamond Speed 55 Pack has a neat suspension system on the shoulder straps that offers more comfort and greater range of movement. The SwingArm shoulder straps link each shoulder strap through a cable, which allows arm mobility when in motion. Its thermoformed, vented back panel keeps you warm in the icy terrains, while its roll-top closure with removable top pocket allows you to store and grab essentials quickly. The IceLink ice tool attachment, 3-point haul system, and welded crampon patch help you organize things by efficiently lugging your ice gear. Black Diamond Speed 55 Pack features the reActive suspension system that blends fixed shoulder straps with an ultra-responsive, floating hip-belt that responds to your body's movements for greater comfort and stability.

This product can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

    Comments about Black Diamond Speed 55 Pack:

    Vertical straps that connect pack body to the top attached too low to the pack body, IMO, however I am not sure this is important. I like this pack so far!
