Hey all,

was an asked for product that RandyR does a great job on,

it is a bombproof old-school simple design, by design.

a sort of, small do everything (well enough) pack

climbing, indoor or out
lead with it
haul it
-stash-it/stow-able, as a summit pack.

Sure. I only lurk on MP, so send them this way or have them email me directly. It really is a fantastic crag pack, and as you say it will last a lifetime.

Cheers!

Yes it is a great build of a great old design, nearest thing to a FROG, out there.

I added it to a discussion of the a used Arc'teryx Miura 50,

Sold. Thanks Gnome for posting it on MP.

Looks like Laralyn Mowers doesn't understand what a crag pack is for. Top loading only is a deal breaker? WTF?

Yeah I know, pointless actually. I sent her a link to a Wild Things Andinista, from, a venerable climber, its a top flight pack with
a good balance of webbing attachment points. even though they add weight themselves
& having so many promotes use, which leads to twisting,
cross loading the stitching on the bag, its a great pack too.

When I have had my choice;
A bombproof main bag, three gear loops inside, a lid with 2 pockets Tool straps, full strength dual haul loops,
A good harness;
stowable belt padded shoulder/sternum straps
removable or slot for extra pad & little else,
has been my climbing bag.
When I look at the 6 Ive got they are all similar..

Wild Things Andinista

Damned good pack for the alpine.

https://www.wildthingsgear.com/products/andinista-pack-mil?variant=1632153923

The CCW Ozone is strictly a crag pack. For more features like tool loops, daisy chains, etc., the CCW Valdez is incredible.

I love the CCW Chaos, especially with heavy loads. Versatile and well designed.

I have an old TNF just like that, love it, can not understand why they do not make a barebones bullet-proof top loader

They don't make or continue making the best designs because we all hold & Use them for 30 years.

The current trend is to sell trendy crap that wears out in one season of regular use. They even make fake haul bag style sacks that have zippers but no 'Lid', or usable top pocket. That they add mesh side pockets to, with ribbons where you need burly straps.

Got a chernobyl I love for BC skiing. Just ordered another valdez; gave my old one to a friend.

Randy is currently in production of the valdez in red and black (his standard color is blue). Iffnn ya want one, now is a good time to order; damn good pack for a reasonable price considering the quality and he makes them himself in NH.

I was never sure why it was named the Chernobyl, but mine is still going strong after probably 30 years. I guess the deal is, your CCW Chernobyl won't wear out until its namesake is inhabitable again. Fantastic pack. Design is exactly right, carries really well skiing or alpine climbing, holds exactly the right amount for a minimalist couple of day alpine outing, incredibly durable.

That is FUNNY! And may be right. Saw an episode of Anthony Bourdain went he went to Russia and visited Chernobyl. The plant life was doing well. Just shows that when mankind becomes extinct the world will still be here.

I returned to this old thread, adding those 2 other used packs 1st

to see if anyone who know whats up is looking for a good deal,

All of these are sitting, for sale, un-used
& not sold
so I think there are deals to be had.


That said:
Dana designs, 40L "Flash-Point", for $40,00

https://www.mountainproject.com/forum/topic/114497008/fs-dana-designs-arc-altitude-flashpoint-alpine-pack

So, while not the same, a lot of pack compared to
A CCW Valdez

https://www.ebay.com/i/152475929024?chn=ps


As much as I want it,
And think it could be bought for much less than they are asking

($60.0+$22.0 - I would offer (no more than) $40.+$22)

then, I would have Randy replace/fix it.

Sad to say I'm not going to be able to buy it.
