Topic - A small rucksac ... slight return

flaneur - on 29 Dec 2011
In a previous thread: I asked for suggestions for a climbing day pack. This is to take trainers, light waterproof, snacks and a little water on long rock routes in places like The Dolomites.

Refining the specification slightly, and taking tongue out of cheek, I'm looking for something very light weight, compact (10-12 litres) or easily compressible, and handles adequately.

A few possibilities below. Any one used any of them? Any other suggestions along similar lines?

Sea to Summit ultrasil daypack:
Ultralight but a bit big and can't be compressed.

Sea to Summit ultrasil dry day pack:
Looks ideal. Doesn't seem to be available in the UK. Typical.

Gossamer minimalist ultra day pack
A thing of beauty. The wide base is possibly not ideal for climbing. Don't think this one is distributed in the UK either.

Exped cloudburst dry
A bit heavier and perhaps harder wearing than the Sea to Summit. Best of what is easily available?
