Ok, gear heads, here’s the newest acquisition for my gear arsenal, and I’ve got to say I’m pretty pumped about it. Kinda like my reaction to the current rescue bags we use on our high ropes course, or those cute little Petzl helmets we use on our more junior climbers…
Where have you been? Why didn’t we get these a long time ago?
That’s my reaction to the Ribz pack. On backpacking trips, I’ve been known to wear a smaller daypack backwards combined with a larger backpack. Looked goofy, but it sorta worked. The Ribz pack is like someone read my wish list and made me a bag.
The Ribz bag is made of lightweight Cordura ripstop nylon, easy to get in & out of, and has enough zippered pockets & loops to satisfy my organizational needs. Adjustment to fit is easy and smooth. All zippers function smoothly with one hand (I hate fighting with zippers!) I love this bag!
As a professional in the ropes challenge course industry, this pack is perfect in keeping tools, parts, etc. secure & readily available when working off the ground.
Again, I love this bag!
My only (and I mean ONLY) negative I can give this bag is the Velcro fastener at the top of the front main zipper. The zipper itself works very well, but under tension sometimes wants to unzip. Instead of Velcro, I’d prefer a clip, snap, or something else with a positive, bomber lock.
Bottom line? The Ribz Front Pack is quality through & through, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a serious piece of personal gear.
