Topic - Which crag pack? Peak Attack or Crag Attack?

Quiddity - on 09 Jan 2008
Geeky question ahoy. I'm Looking for anyone who's got experience of either (preferably both) of these Lowe Alpine packs, or similar packs from other manufacturers.

Peak Attack 40

Crag Attack 40

The Peak attack seems to have more features - a better hip belt, stiffened back panel, aluminium frame, etc. but it weighs and costs over half as much again.

I'm thinking of this primarily as a crag pack, but it would be useful to do lightly packed weekend trips in it but also be able to carry it on mountain routes if necessary. I don't have a car, so it's pretty important to me to have a pack which I can comfortably carry for a long time. Anyone who has used both packs (or similar) - Would I miss the back panel/hip belt if I were needing to carry a lot of gear long distances, or are they just unnecessary features to add to the price and weight?
