The 70L size, low price and carrying comfort make this one of the most popular haulbags around.

Grivel's new daisy chain has a chain-link construction with loops that are all individually rated to 23kN as oppose to 2kN on a standard daisy chain, meaning that it can be used as a cows-tail of varying lengths or even to equalise anchors at a belay. This makes it a versatile piece of kit for sport, trad, aid or big wall climbing.
