This bag was so great when I first got it. Amazing for holding ice gear and loved it for multi pitches or days at the crag. As long as I didn't have to open the bag too often. I was super disappointed that the top zipper keeps snagging and it's rrally difficult to open. The pull tab keeps falling off which makes this more challenging. I requested a new tab and got it promptly because the last one fell out. Now I have the tab and have tried closing the gap so it is smaller but some way it still manages to come out. I like that it's a big sac style bag to get my things easily, just wish that it was easier to get into the actual bag. I stopped using it for hiking because it became frustrating every time I wanted to get in the bag.
