Looking for something short of a pack but still able to hang at the crag? Look no further, boulder-boy-ee. Assuming you're man enough to crush the inevitable metrosexual jokes with your own scathing repartee, the Kelty Rove messenger bag makes a great sidekick.
Start your verbal smackdown by establishing your greener-than-thou credentials: the Rove is made from 60% recycled polyester fabric and vegetable tanned leather. Take that, oil-based monster synthetic pack guy. The interior is big enough for shoes, chalk bag, clothing and some munchies. Or if you're into that whole "education" or "work" thing (loser!), a medium-sized laptop and legal pad.
The interior is safety-orange, so you'll have no problem finding your crap – I mean, valuable stuff. It's got a slick easy-clean lining, a single divider, and two small slit-style pockets under the flap each big enough for a cell phone, energy bar or even a bottle of beer. The wide adjustable shoulder strap is plenty comfy. The Rove even comes with one of those recycled shopping totes that you're embarrased to be seen shopping without these days. Fair warning: it's stylish enough the SheFlogger will try to steal it, so keep one eye peeled.
