Not so tough - 03/05/2017
I did like this bag a lot. It fit all my things and organized them really well. I kept 150 feet of climbing line in a separate rope bag, my new tribe onyx with lanyard and all attached, usaver, snake anchor, various carabiners and hitches and rope runners, etc. and my petzl throw line bag all inside this gear bag. Would hook a few things to the outside like my handsaw, spare carabiners, etc. The velcro pockets were great for spare gloves, buffs, hand pruners, foot ascender, HUP, etc.
The only downside to the bag was the time it took to pack everything back up and get the bag buttoned up, as it was at full capacity. But no big deal, a few extra minutes for some extreme organization...worth it.
Then one day I didn't move my bag far enough away from the tree and I dropped a two inch diameter piece of deadwood on it from about 60 feet up. The entire bottom of the bag blew out, the stitching just gave up in a catastrophic failure. So...you could say this was my fault. And I would agree, to a point. However...If this same situation would have happened to my my metolious pack it would have shrugged it's shoulders and the piece of wood would have been more injured than bag.
Moral of the story- cool bag, but not very durable for daily tree use. Complicated and time consuming to pack it back up. I have a feeling the stitching would have failed within a year even if I had not hit it with a branch.
I loved it now I am disappointed - 11/05/2016
So...I bought this bag about 6 months ago give or take a month. I don't climb everyday so my gear sits in my bag and that sits inside my gear box. A safe clean area. I only keep about 8 carabiners (different sizes and shapes no steel) 6 looprunners, hand/foot ascender, back up eye to eyes, 3 micro's, two silks, a tree motion saddle, and my rapid hitch climber My ropes...don't fit. But that is not the issue. For the price of the bag and the amount of gear I keep in it bothers me. It doesn't seem that much? Am I wrong? It seems to be well put together so maybe when the person who stitch mine was a little hung over. I think before I gave this bag a 5 star. I would still hold to that if the bag lasted me a year of everyday use. It is what is. It's not Treestuffs fault. I still think knuckle heads are pretty cool! Bring the JAMBO to San Diego!!!!

I must say, I've tried just about every haul bag that the 3 major distributors have or had for sale. The Courant Pro is by far the greatest gear bag that I've ever purchased and used! The lower back support is incredible, after installing the waist belt only made it better! Don't waste your money on thin walled bags, this will definitely be the best bag for your money. We don't like wasting our hard earned money, and with this bag, you won't be! On a scale of 1 to 10, it's a 12. More attachments and pockets than you could ever imagine. You will never be disappointed with this gear for/rigging haul pack! Do yourself a huge favor to your back and shoulders, and never forget a piece of gear again!

Well after reading all the amazing reviews and needing a new pack to haul my gear in, I decided to give this one a try. I really wanted to love this bag, I really don't like spending money on something and then having to return it. If you are using this just to haul rigging gear and some rope then by all means go for it, but if you actually want to put a saddle, light duty rigging gear, your spikes and a couple different handsaws in it like I do, your s*** out of luck. I started always bringing my spikes in my bag after leaving them at the shop a couple times when I had a removal and I don't mind hauling them around everywhere as long as I never have to drive back and get them again... The opening system is a bit awkward too, if you have some heavy hear in the sides you have to put in a bit more effort to zip up the sides, and I really dont like the velcrow as the only main closure as debris invariably are going to get in and weaken the system. Maybe if you like spending all your time opening and closing bags, the layout would be super awesome, but personally I just need something that is super bomb proof, I don't need to put much effort into getting that seldom used item, and I don't have to worry about all my gear getting wet because it started raining again in the NW and I didn't feel like zipping the whole convoluted thing up because I knew a groundie would need to grab me some slings and a pulley in a bit and thought it might take longer than I really wanted them to spend on the project... The crowning fail of this pack is they put the shoulder straps on the bottom, maybe it never rains and dogs don't poop in the yards where the people who designed this pack are from, but where I live it does rain, and sometimes people dont mow their lawn and do have dogs and racoons, and I dont want my shoulder straps to be all muddy at the end of a long day.

Just got this bag and I was expecting it to be good from the reviews and pictures, but when it turned up I was blown away at just how good it is!
Super heavy duty, the zippers and material feels really robust and durable. Plus you can pack this thing chock-a-block with gear! more connection loops and pocks then you could hope for...
In short I really love this bag already, you won't be disappointed if you invest in one, and it looks bad ass which is always a bonus.
