The Street Creek is a well-made and cool-looking day pack aimed at urban wall-goers. It's just a shame that a higher volume model isn't available for outdoor use, says Rob Greenwood.

I have the Street Creek 24 and it seems perfect for work then an evening trip to the wall but not the first choice for a day's cragging, as Rob says. In terms of a larger version, BD already make the Creek 35 and 50?

Hi Alastair,

Good to hear it's not just me that liked it.

When it comes to the Creek 35 and 50 I've got a rather embarrassing confession to make: despite having seen these packs in the flesh several times before I had completely forgotten they existed until I saw your message. I'll tweak the text a bit in light of this, just so it's obvious that alternatives are available - albeit within a different fabric.

I'll also see if we can get one on test, as it'd be good to review one of the larger ones in light of the fact it ticks a lot of boxes for UK trad and sport.

BD also have the Crag 40 that looks somewhat similar but costs quite a lot less. It seems to be made out more normal thick nylon and not the rubbery haul bag stuff that the Creek range are - but BD seems to have a lot of options on things that would make decent UK crag packs!
