The Outcast 44 is the ultimate sport climbing backpack. With a book-style opening, rope tarp and reinforced clip-stick holder, it provides a quick and easy way to stash gear and move from route to route.
Built from tough 840D ballistic and 420D nylon, with a sleek aesthetic and reinforcement in high-wear regions, our durable Outcast 44 climbing pack is designed for effortless mobility at the crag. Featuring the TriFlex carry system, an internal spring steel frame helps transfer the weight to the lumbar and hip belt, for a supportive carry.
With a zipped, book-style opening and top and side carry handles, our 44-litre crag bag features a unique reinforced external pocket, specially designed to stash a clip-stick. A stretch mesh side pocket and external zipped guidebook pocket provide quick access to essentials, with a top-tensioner rope holder for additional 60 or 80m rope carry. Internal compression straps, gear loops and a mesh divider enable you to organise and access your gear with the utmost ease. The Outcast 44 also features an integrated rope tarp with colour-coded loops that can be rolled out and packed away in seconds.

Having a comfortable pack can be a make or break for your trip. No matter if you're carrying 18kg on a multi-day expedition, or just an extra layer and lunch on a short hill day. Fitting your pack properly takes a little time. But we promise it'll be time well spent.
In this guide, we'll look at how to measure your back length and how to fit your pack.
How to measure your back length
You'll need a tape measure and a friend to help you out with this.
- Place your hands on your hips and tilt your head forwards.
- Ask your friend to measure from the bony bit at the back of your neck (the C7 vertebrae) to where your hands sit on your hips.
- This measurement will give you an idea of which back length to choose.
Fitting your pack in 6 steps
- Loosen all the straps.
- Add a little weight into the pack. 3-4 kilos will do it.
- Put the backpack on your shoulders and do up the hip belt. This should sit over your hip bone.
- Check that the pack is sitting well over your shoulders. It should follow the contour of your upper back. If the hip belt is sitting above your hip or pulling down your shoulders, you'll need to lengthen the back. If it is below your hips or really loose over your shoulders, then shorten the back length.
- Once you're happy with the back length, whilst wearing the pack, tighten the shoulder harness so it is just tight enough. If you grab the straps and pull down and back, your hands should not usually pass your waist.
- Make sure the sternum (chest) strap is in the right place for you and clip together. This should only be 'finger-tight'.
And you're good to go.
It's also a good idea to go through these steps every so often to make sure your pack still fits you well.
