    SRS Rope Management

    Rope management is separated from gear by a physical fabric divider. Gear goes into ‘Gear Side’ compartment, rope flakes into ‘Rope Side’ compartment. 

    Hung from lid loop or grab loop pack serves as a rope bucket for fast, reliable rope management.


    Contoured back panel fits to the shape of your back.

    Removable padded waistbelt distributes load to hips for comfortable approaches.

    Most accurate blend of carry comfort and durability.

    No sharp ends or hard edges to suffer under sandstone’s abrasion.


    Pack construction and materials are blended for maximum durability. Wear area seams protected with webbing armor.

    Shoulder harness webbing extends behind back panel, bar tacked into additional 1.5” webbing under padding.

    Lid and opening edges finished with load bearing seam binding. Rope deploys smoothly in rappels and bag can be pulled thru narrows by lid.

    Bottom has grommeted water drain eyelets. Water moves through bag quickly, keeping weight to a minimum. 

    Quickly strips down to canyon-streamline. Removable padded waistbelt, webbing waistbelt, sternum strap, and wetsuit bag.

    Lid closes with carabiner. Durable construction and webbing quality is NOT intended for any part of rigging.

    Suspended by lid or grab loops pack deploys in bucket mode for easy rope or gear access. 

    Two exterior lid pockets for water, hats or gloves.

    Two interior pockets for maps, headlamps, or nutrition.

    Front loops fit removable wetsuit bag. Upper loops made for hauling with grab loop.


    The Guide does not have a hydration sleeve system. In field testing bags this size routinely stripped the bite valve off the end, sharing the day’s water with the parched desert landscape. Instead a water bottle holster is recommended for approach and exit. When it’s time to rap remove the waistbelt and holster. Put the bottle in the lid and the waistbelt holster in the gear side. The softer bike-style bottle plastic will be less prone to abrade the pack. 


    Ideal for gear intense canyons and outings. 

    Wetsuit bag (removable) puts this bulky item on the exterior until it is required. Once the neoprene is on, bag is removed and stowed in gear side compartments. Keeping bag as small and nimble as possible in canyon.

    Removable padded waistbelt can carry 2 water bottle holsters, insuring hydration momentum is on track when the canyoneering begins.

    The big rig.

    Seven years of testing and refinement landed this bag as the perfect blend of carrying comfort and durability. Engineered to optimize rope management in multi-person guided canyoneering situations, this pack proved to increase the pace and optimize safety. At 50 liters, it has room for daily supplies, extra belay ropes, and group safety gear.

    In non-guided applications, this pack is a great choice for multi rope routes, overnights, or when more than the essentials are needed. It is equally at home rock climbing at the Creek, technical pack raft portages, or any other big desert objectives you scheme up with your sandbagging friends. 

    SRS - Single Rope System.

    Innovation that changes the way we move through canyons.

    How to pack.

    The SRS divider system allows you to separate your rope from gear with a physical divider inside the pack. We recommend first flaking your rope into the rope side, attaching the bottom of your rope to the black rope loop and the top to the red loop. Then put all your gear except harness and helmet into the gear side to isolate it from the flaked rope. Helmet and harness fit nicely on top once all packed since they are the first items to be used.


    For any rappel from 15ft to over 200ft, if your anchor station allows, you can start by attaching the pack to the anchor by either the lid loop or grab loop for an easy work station. Then flake out ONLY the amount of rope needed from inside of the pack, toss the rope, and put in your preferred rope block technique. The rest of your rope stays neatly packed inside the bag. Everyone in the group descends but the last person, who will be descending with the pack containing the rope.

    Pull and go.

    The last person in the group descends with the pack on their back while the flaked rope pays out smoothly and predictably from the rope side of the bag. Once safely on the ground, the rope is pulled and flaked back into the rope side of the bag and tied off on the red rope loop. This eliminates the need to uncoil and recoil rope between rappels, improving speed, efficiency, and safety.
