If you’ve ever opened up a cooler to grab a cold one, then you know just how quickly you can throw open our Cragsmith. It has a back panel that swings wide for easy access, and holds an entire collection of climbing gear including your rope, rack, shoes and extra clothes with room to spare. Made of burly nylon (50% recycled for a lighter touch on our environment) to withstand the hard knocks of climbing, the Cragsmith has foam padding throughout that protects your gear and provides structure to make packing and unpacking even easier. The highly breathable mesh shoulder straps and back panel, along with a padded waist strap, provide all-day carrying comfort on long approaches. Exterior stretch stash pockets hold your water bottles and guidebook and an internal stash pocket keeps your keys and wallet secure. When the pack is standing upright, you can reach your gear through the U-shaped lid; lay it down at the base of a route, open up the back panel and you’ll never have to expose your gear or the pack’s harness system to grit and dirt. With a reinforced haul handle, adjustable sternum strap and load lifters on the shoulder straps. Built from 630-denier 100% nylon (50% recycled/50% high-tenacity) plain weave with a 200-denier 100% polyester liner. Both fabrics are treated with a polyurethane coating and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.

Size & Fit
Body: 7.4-oz 630-denier 100% nylon (50% recycled/50% high-tenacity) plain weave. Lining: 3.3-oz 200-denier 100% polyester. Both with a polyurethane coating and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish
DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.
Although we’ve been using recycled polyester in our garments for 20 years, for some reason locked deep in polymer chemistry, nylon is more difficult to recycle than polyester. After years of research, development, and testing, we’re finally finding some recycled nylon fibers that are suitable for apparel.
Some of the recycled nylon we use comes from post-industrial waste fiber, yarn collected from a spinning factory, and waste from the weaving mills that can be processed into reusable nylon fiber.
We’re diligently searching for a success story with recycled nylon. The challenge lies ahead of us, and we’re committed to discovering the best methods to recycle nylon fiber, but it appears this evolution will take many years.

Measurements refer to body size, not garment dimensions, and are in inches, unless otherwise noted.
Though each Patagonia® product is designed and shaped specifically for its intended use, we can generalize our fit descriptions in four ways:
Formfitting: Conforms to the body’s contours.
Slim Fit: Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.
Regular Fit: Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers.
Relaxed Fit: Drapes loosely on the body.
