The Black Diamond Speed 30 is a lightweight Alpine climbing pack that works well on both rock or ice ascents. The Speed series gets their name from their streamlined design combined with the ability to strip them right down for fast summit pushes.
The pack has a 'floating' lid enabling for excellent adjustment or for complete removal. The main body of the pack is sealed with the skirt closure and there's a tuck-away rope strap to keep a rope secure with or without the lid.
The shoulder straps use Black Diamond's reACTIV SwingArm system keeping the pack stable and enabling you to move freely. Comfort is ensured when you're working hard by the Thermoformed back panel with ventilating ribs. Three reinforced haul loops allow you to climb freely on harder pitches and haul the Speed 30 up after you. Overall a well-constructed pack that won't let you down when it matters.
The internal back support frame is removable and now includes a foam bivi pad. The bivi pad is quite small but can make all the difference on those emergency bivis.

I purchased this rucksack for summer mountaineering / climbing. The pack is very simple but has lots of attachment points and very good storage areas both inside & in the lid.
It's very well made and good quality as you'd expect from Black Diamond. The pack fits very close to the body and doesn't vent well at the back but I prefer this from a pack, especially if out in exposed areas. It's quite big for a 30L so can easily fit climbing equipment/spare clothing/jacket/food inside. I've been using a TNF Shadow 45L during winter but it may be too big now I have the BD Speed 30.
I'd highly recommend this product.
