Pull on the Vaude Expedition Rock 4510 Pack when your adventures on rock and ice take you out for the long haul. The Vaude Expedition Pack sports a preformed PE back panel to ensure stability and protection, and a detachable lid for extra cargo space on long treks. The 420D ripstop fabric prevents abrasions and tearing, and the hydration port with a built-in drink tube houses your H2O reservoir for easy access. Vaude gave the Expedition two tool attachment points to hold your ice axe or trekking poles, a rope holder under the lid to keep your life line close-at-hand, and a waterproof pocket for your map or passport. Vaudes e-link system allows the pack to be connected to an Edelrid harness when youre on the ascent, and the detachable hip-belt and adjustable shoulder straps conform to your needs on the mountain.

On the right track, but... 2 out of 5 stars

Review by: taino, 2007-03-07

This pack has hints of greatness. It's reasonably light, very comfortable, easy to adjust, and it can hold a lot of gear. For rock cragging and overnighters, it's great. It also shines when used in the backcountry, with ski/snowshoe loops on the side and quick-releasing compression straps. Why, then, am I only giving this two stars?

The pack has buckles that attach directly to the material of the pack, with which to carry ice axes. On mine, one of them popped out after only approximately 10 days of useage - wholly unacceptable. In addition, there is nowhere to externally attach your crampons; instead, you can stuff them up under the pack lid or under the compression straps and risk the bag being punctured. I brought it up with my local shop, and found out that they'd had several Vaude packs returned over the past couple of years for the same reason - that buckle, fastened in the material, popping out. They sent it back to the company, and I got a different pack.

In short, the pack is good for nearly everything for which it's advertised. I would strongly advise, however, getting something else for ice/alpine pursuits.
