My Sack from Pusher just arrived and I loaded it up with all my gear for a trip to Rumney this weekend. I can already tell this thing is a winner. If you want a new crag bag, look no further. The only complaint I have is the logo is giant. I am going to order a second one if I can get it made sterile with no logo. That is how much I like this bag.



EDIT: OK, it is a great bag but it is hit or miss for some. If it fits your body type youll be fine. I like the way it carries but some of my friends absolutely hate it. The arm straps are not very adjustable. I might like my BD Demon duffel better but the pusher sack is a lot bigger so depends on how much stuff you need to carry.

I like the bd demon duffle. Fits lots of gear and is easy on the wallet. Love the duffle opening. Depending on your budget you may want a pack with more features.

My favorite crag bag is still a smaller sized haul bag. Especially in the desert southwest where you often carry a ton of camming units and two ropes on most days. A haul bag is never going wear out, tare, blow out a seem, or let your hardware poke into your back like a soft pack will. It's a "wearable bucket" for your gear!

bit of a tangential thread-jack...

many moons ago, when i did a lot of backpacking, Dana design was making custom-molded panels for their packs. even someone else's pack was more comfortable on long treks than any other pack, not to mention your own.

Dana has since changed hands many times and (i think) ended up under Marmot, who has no such thing to my knowledge.

Has another company picked up the idea or has that technology fallen by the wayside as well?

It's true, you have reached the pinnacle of pack making. The Cilo 40 is the ultimate. Your life's work is complete, and you are no longer needed. You small personal niche has been filled with a cunning mix of NWD and dee-clips, and there is no more room for crackers.

Sorry , brah, I hate being the bearer of bad news, but you brought this on yourself.

The pusher looks awesome. Exactly what I need. Except that it looks like it can only be carried suit case style.Unsure At least that is all they have on the web site. Can you carry it on your back?

Sounds like you can.

I just ordered one though so Ill let you know in a bit!
Well I'll be danged. I didn't see the back strap pics. I'll be very interested to hear what you have to write about it. please do a review.
Thanks in advance.

It's pretty awesome. As I said upthread it carries surprisingly well for a backpack of this style. It's a breeze to move around the crag, and I've used the rope bucket configuration a ton.

I love it.


So many man bags/purses to choose from, get two!

Not sure about the custom molded panels, but Dana Gleason (owner and brains behind Dana Designs) has a new company called Mystery Ranch. I have not used one of their packs, but from all I have heard they make some of the best backpacks for carrying heavy to huge loads.
