Black Diamond Speed 55 Backpack - Unisex



Show Description

A strippable climbing pack for fast and light, multi-day alpine ascents. SwingArm shoulder straps and reACTIV suspension provide unparalleled freedom of movement for technical rock and ice routes. When weight is at a premium, the pack's padded hipbelt, frame, framesheet and top lid are all removable to convert it to a stripped down, ultra-light summit pack. The 55L size is ideal for overnight objectives or carefully packed multi-day sieges.

  • Main fabric is nailhead nylon reinforced with panels of welded nylon for abrasion resistance.
  • reACTIV hipbelt has a floating pass-through design that flexes smoothly in the vertical plane while its soft construction allows comfort and mobility in all directions.
  • SwingArm shoulder straps move with your stride by sliding through the bottom of the pack with a low friction cable housing. Each strap is linked to its partner with a cable to maintain an even, balanced load across both shoulders.
  • Thermoformed backpanel for lightweight comfort and breathability.
  • Top loading with spindrift collar, roll top closure and tuck away rope strap.
  • Side compression straps provide volume adjustment.
  • Floating lid is removable and has an external zippered pocket.
  • Ice-tool PickPockets provide tool attachment for technical alpine and ice ascents.
  • 3-point haul system using loops on front and a rear haul handle.
  • Removable 20mm crampon straps.
  • Removable padded hipbelt with fixed webbing belt for stripped down summit pack.
  • Hipbelt gear loops for rock gear or ice screws.
  • Hydration system compatible for hydrating on the move.
