to two haul-loops or the small daisy­chain. Once on the wall, the low prof ile sits high above your har­ness but low enough to be out of the way of your hel­meted head. Two side pock­ets are large enough to f it a 1L wa­ter bot­tle each, and ex­tend into the pack body, main­tain­ing the pack’s slim prof ile. In­side, there’s a blad­der sleeve, a small pocket with a key clip and a handy gear-loop to keep your climb­ing es­sen­tials handy. A su­perbly de­signed pack for multi-pitch days or short days at the crag. The Pace 36 is Deuter’s entr y into light-and­fast packs. Uniquely, it is the only pack here with­out strip­pable com­po­nents: ever ything has al­ready been pared down to the bare min­i­mum. The shoul­der straps and hip “f ins” uti­lize a wo­ven mesh for light weight, breatha­bil­ity and com­fort. Al­though light in weight, the Pace 36 doesn’t lack in fea­tures: there is a large stash pocket on the front, dual stretch side pock­ets, a two-pocket non­re­mov­able lid and a blad­der com­part­ment in­side. Two ice-axe loops ac­com­mo­date work best with tra­di­tional moun­taineer­ing axes, while three com­pres­sion straps per side cinch the pack down for climb­ing. Uniquely, these three straps use op­pos­ing buck­les to wrap around the whole pack body for max­i­mum com­pres­sion. A fully-fea­tured pack that doesn’t skimp on any­thing but weight.–
