Splitter™ 40 Backpack 4.5 5 4 4
Seems rad I just got this pack and I loaded it up with my sport climbing stuff and it fits great. Got 2 harnesses, a couple pairs of shoes, chalk bags, rope, draws and it fits all items well. It has a bit more space than I initially expected and since Im a bit of a snackaholic Im pretty psyched. Also I think Ill be able to fit all my extra layers in there. I havent used the bag yet but I think it will help with my organization on trips January 2, 2015
Not as good as previous model After 7 years of having the old Splitter backpack (which was ~$250 when I bought it), I sent it in to have some repairs made. I was told that it was beyond repair and they were going to send me the latest version of the Splitter. I noticed the $80 downgrade between the old version and newest version immediately. This product is good... Don't get me wrong. That being said, I have to compare it to what I had. The first thing I noticed was that the waist strap on the new model is not removable for everyday casual use, which makes it feel like overkill. Second, I don't like that the hanger straps on the new version are on the waist belt instead of on the interior of the backpack. (If anything, I would have preferred the hanger straps be on the interior of the pack as well as on the would-be removable waist belt.) Third, the interior pockets are not as small and organized as on the previous model. They're big and unwieldy. Fourth, there is no "hidden" interior pocket between the area your back is and the main pocket. Next, I don't really care for the straps that overlap the zippers, as they have to be unclipped in order to open the main pocket. And finally, this version doesn't have the gratuitous (but much used) bottle openers attached to the outside of the pack. (The old version did, and they got more than their fair share of use.) Things I DO like: the backpack looks awesome. I also like that it's a little bit smaller than the older version, which probably had a 50L capacity. I also really like the fact that the water bottle pouches are deeper than the old version and can hold taller water bottles. All in all, I like this pack, but given the choice between the current model and the old, I feel like overall the old version was more versatile for climbing as well as everyday/weekend use and the new version is less versatile. If I were going to spend this much money on a pack, I'd probably want a little more bang for my buck. Does that mean that I won't enjoy this one immensely? Absolutely not. I love Mountain Hardwear and absolutely stand by them and their products faithfully. I just think the designers tried to cut back on some of the key features that were important/useful to me.

Awesome pack for climbing This bag is everything I hoped for and then some. It has great compartmentalization to organize just about everything you could bring to the crag. Excellent front pockets with plenty of space/compartments. I'm very satisfied with this purchase. July 25, 2014
Best Crag Bag Ever! I love my Hueco 35 but it has left something to be desired when taking it out on long days of route climbing. Enter the Splitter 40. This bag has it all. Properly sized compartments for all your gear, multiple sizing and load adjusters, built in rope tarp, and plenty of extra space for a backup jacket, lunch, beer, or whatever you may need on a long day of climbing. The only downside I found with it is the lack of a hydration sleeve compartment. The bag will totally hold the bladder in the ample main compartment but it would have been nice to have a hole to run the drinking nozzle through. Other than that, this bag is absolutely perfect.
