Bolt 24 Pack is rated out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Darryl from Bomb-Proof I purchased this pack about a month ago, I can't comment too much on the durability so far, however I can tell you I've taken it on multiple day hikes which involved some bushwacking and it still looks new. I'm a large guy 6'5" and 230#, I got the M/L size naturally. The pack fits like it was built specifically for me. Highly adjustable and feels great on the hips when loaded down. I also use this pack when scrambling and I have to say the reACTIV suspension is amazing, it moves with your body, compared too the resistance other packs have, this pack moves with you body not against it. I really like the external access to the hydration area, so much better than having to pull all your gear out to access it. Over all a soild pack, check it out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Michael from Took Getting Used To I have used this pack for a pretty big variety of activities so far. I have taken it up long multi-pitches and done long snow hikes with it. It has been to a festival and a dozen different crags. Some of its best features are... -The brain! Putting a rope under the brain of a pack this size is AWESOME and saves a ton of space -The weight -How well it breathes. Your back still sweats but this is about as good as it gets -The suspension really is amazing. You'll feel it when you climb more than when you walk. -It seems bomber thus far. I almost tried to squeeze it up an offwidth pitch. -The outer pocket is pretty universal- I've tied snowshoes to the pack by slotting them in there, put a camera case in there and usually keep my hard shell/snacks in there Some things I'm not psyched on... -The hydration sleeve. It is hard to slot most bladders in there and you can only do it when the pack is empty -The water bottle holders. It is hard to explain but these are way over built -The drawstring to the main compartment takes two hands to open -The size of the top loading mouth (where the drawstring is) is the same diameter as the rest of the pack. This makes it hard to put large items in the pack, like your entire rack, without wrestling the pack. I really do like this pack a lot and use it very often. The build is awesome and the side loading feature is pretty handy (it is only on one side). Overall this pack took some getting used to because the general build is pretty different than most day packs (in my experience at least) but I'm still very happy with my purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Samuel from Simple, light, strong and great hip straps!!! I've had this pack for about a year now and used it pretty much every way possible, from climbing 16k+ summits to using it as a carry-on this bag just keeps up and has yet to cause me any issues. I love how the hip straps are easy to adjust and seem to always fit right when you cinch them down. My only complaint has to do with ice axe/ walking stick placement. with a lot of bags theres a place to store the tips of the axes so as to not cut gear or poke your buddies. I couldnt find a decent way to store the axes with out poking or cutting something, also walking sticks seem to have a hard time wanting to stay on the straps and not fall off. With larger bags this usually isnt much of an issue, but due to the bag being as small as it is, i think some sacrifices had to be made. Overall this is a tiny stain on an amazing pack. If you're on the fence about this one I say go for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oregonhopper from New favorite day pack Fits my climbing gear for a day at the crag perfectly, also a great carry on. My favorite feature is the expandable water bottle packets on the side, they fit large bottles nicely yet shrink down to not get in the way when not in use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Adam from Great Day Pack Perfect sized pack for summer day hikes. Love the mesh straps and back panel. The side access and large exterior pocket are both super convenient.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Brian from Great pack The Bolt 24 is the perfect peak bagging pack. I climbed six 14ers in Colorado in 5 days. The pack has solid construction and was comfortable for over 45 miles of hiking/scrambling and 18,000+ feet of elevation gain. We needed helmets for one summit and easily strapped them on the back along side our trekking pokes. The side zipper made it easy to access gear while the helmet was strapped on the back. The shoulder straps and waist strap were both easily adjustable and comfortable. The only issue I had was with the water reservoir. On two separate occasions my water bladder started leaking inside the pack at the start of the hike. I took out the bladder but could not find any leaks. I think I finally determined that the bladder was being pinched between the pack frame and bottom cable/seam. I never found specs as to how large a bladder the pack supports (mine was 3 liters or 100 ozs). I finally started stuffing my rain pants down to the bottom of the water compartment and that seemed to fix the problem. Overall this is a great pack and I would recommend it! I wish Black Diamond had better product videos as there wasn't a lot of info about this pack on the Internet (I found one blog and one video of an older model)

Rated 5 out of 5 by eric from Man Purse Now Going strong for 3 years I'm 6', 180#. Previous had an 80's dana bomb pack that had devolved into shredded patches. I have larger packs for carrying >40 pounds, and a small 15L pack for racing, but nothing in between. Shopped locally for a few weeks and bought this on a whim, as I really needed a new day pack. -Seemed well made - top flap for rope 'n jacket - decent big pocket in top flap - open-tapering powder skirt for ease of overstuffing - fits my shoulders/lats - is decently light - ventilates well - 2 mesh side water bottle slots - side compression straps and - Has A Side Zip After 3 years of pretty much daily use I am extremely happy with this pack. The rubber print is scrubbing away but the rest of the bag is going strong. Majority of my use is for mountain biking. Typical training ride I'm alone for 2-4 hours, I use a 100oz osprey bladder, sugar bars, headlamp, first aid kit, emergency blanket, bike stuff, phone, sometimes a shell, hat, sweater, down vest, radio. Pack carries it all and stays out of my way. The hip belt was at first an annoyance but I keep it maximally loose and it doesn't interfere with me. I now use it to hold pack upright when I access the pack while standing astride the bike. I've been over the bars several times into trees and brush and the pack protected my back which is a nice bonus. I've also hiked and climbed with it. About a year into ownership I climbed carrying a rope and rack and discovered the ReActiv system, the base of the shoulder straps are connected so if one rises the other can fall. At first it was freaky, couldn't figure out what was happening but its actually really good idea and lets you move naturally with weight on shoulders. Pack is ok up to about 30-35 pounds, at that point the frame begins to fold and the shoulder straps take all the weight, its difficult to get that much weight into this little pack (water, camera gear and hardware.) I usually race with a smaller 15L pack since there are aid stations and drops for food and first aid. Last summer I did 2 long 7-10 hour mtb races using this pack instead of my little race bag. Reason? I think it breathes better than the small pack and the bolt's shoulder straps are more comfortable. Also it holds the large hydration bladder better than the sloppy small pack. Other good features: There's a big pocket/crampon protector along the back of the pack. I fill this pocket with energy bars, just reach in and grab (though I do need to remove the pack to get access). There is a stupid little pocket on the hip belt. Ya know what? I use it all the time to store energy bar wrappers, my little garbage pocket. Is perfect since I have no pockets on my bike clothes. Last thing to mention: I was really psyched about the side zipper on this pack. Well... I haven't used it even once. If a pack is full then the side zip will explode when you undo it, and if it isn't full then what is the point? I really appreciate the gesture but I'd much prefer if the pack had a big zipper right down the back so I could pack and unpack a Fine Sandwich or Crackers without risk of breaking/smushing. Please BD can you consider adding an angle zip to this pack to allow proper careful lunch packing? Sort of a half clamshell zip at the bottom? Would really make my day. Lastly this bag is large enough to comfortably carry a big heavy 15" HP Elitebook laptop. Cheers.
