"I grew up in La Rochelle and that’s where I discovered climbing. It all started at a carnival where there was a climbing wall between two caravan stands. I dragged my parents to the bottom of the wall, put on a harness and that’s when I became infected with the climbing virus. Straight after I joined the climbing club of La Rochelle. My parents were not climbers and since La Rochelle is flat and better for sailing than for climbing, I didn’t think I would make a career out of climbing. Now it is the most important thing in my life. I travel the world to climb and I have an amazing social life with friends in all corners of the globe."

Osprey Archeon 45 Pack

Made to last, and with more than a nod towards sustainability, the Archeon is an easy pack to like. The high weight is a forgivable consequence of its durable and supportive feel, says Dan Bailey, but a more minimalist design might have better suited its old school...
