THE SELL: A climbing pack with backpacking chops. THE TEST: With its rope-friendly big-mouth cargo access, sheaths that let you draw an ax with the pack on, and crampon-proof back panel, the streamlined, 45-liter Epic has every feature an all-season climber could ask for, including a waist belt that detaches when it's time to wear a harness. Plus, the shoulder straps and hip belt pivot independently—a great bonus when scrambling. THE VERDICT: Alpinists of every stripe will love it, but day hikers might bemoan the lack of camera and snack pockets and such. 3.6 lbs
Hauling comfort: 48 pounds
Versatility: 4
