Reviewers like these things about Patagonia Ascensionist

  • Most reviewers find it relatively light and simple to wear.
  • The price is quite affordable for most users.
  • Simple yet streamlined climbing backpack with added space to carry more climbing gear and overnight kit.
  • Durable and light thanks to its nylon ripstop with great abrasion and tear resistance.

  • Daisy chains on side and front panels to provide options for lashing, manages various side loads with compression straps and easy access to basic and small items on zippered pockets.

Reviewers don't like these things

  • Most users found removing padded hipbelt too difficult, as it could save up to 140gm weight, especially because you cannot remove the wide webbing belt which is sewn on the back.
  • Water management is also not that simple for some climbers. It lacks in side pockets and hydration system exit. To drink some water, you need to take off the backpack. It is not convenient when climbing as you cannot stop every half an hour just to drink.
