I am selling my Black Diamond 55 Liter Shadow pack for 100 dollars. There is nothing wrong with this pack but unfortunately i need a larger backpack so i can attend philmont scout camp and a 100 mile trek on a section of the colorado trail. The Shadow is loaded with a clever set of features, including a removable bivy pad which can replace (in a pinch) your regular Therm-a-rest or a Ridgerest pad.I love the pack‘s floating-head design, which allows the Shadow to expand its volume by an extra 10 liters or so when needed (and somehow, it‘s always needed).Additionally, the head pouch is completely removable, along with the frame rod, allowing you to strip the pack down for summits assaults from 3 lbs 13 ounces to just over two pounds—not bad for an overnight alpine pack! another one of black diamonds genius creations is the ability to roll up the straps and keep that way using velcro so none of your unused strap will create a problem on the trail. the crampon chord was too small for what i used it for which was generally holding my sleeping pad so i put on some longer chord. i also cut out the internal water bladder because it was always getting in the way and due to the packs design placing your water bladder there was near to impossible. i also added two of my own modifications to this internal frame pack. because there are a lack of pockets on this pack i took a water bottle holder and sewed it so that i was able to hook it onto the waist. i also sewed another pocket out of the internal pocket material. these are ofcourse not sewn to the actual pack and can be removed all you need to do is as. i would like to sell this as soon as possible because i leave june for a trip in oregon and return and immediately leave for philmont leaving me little time for a 15 year old to collect the amount that i need. please call me at 303 618 1524 to talk.
