/ Lightweight Alpine Rucksacks
Depends on the actual needs.
So what you actually want from the sack.
Something like REI Flash 18 ( http://www.rei.com/product/827110/rei-flash-18-pack ) would be stellar for some pure rock routes.
Something bigger would be naturally better for when you need to lug more stuff.
I've been rather happy with Blueice Warthog 26 (http://www.blueice.com/products/en/home/10-warthog-26l.html ) as my main alpine sack (ie. need to lug axes with me).
Millet packs may be worth a look. I bought myself a Prolighter 38+10 and it's super light and unfussy - spot on. Will definitely be considering more of their stuff in the future.
arc'teryx cierzo 35
hands down, the best sack i have ever bought, even packs into its own lid, they do a smaller size as well
You probably need to try the rucksacks on before deciding which to buy?
Or keep, at least.
Great little pack and cheap for something by arcteryx.
Yah, good sack. I have the older 35 l version.
Cheap for 'Ryx, but still expensive as hell.
Something like this would also fit the bill (and be cheap):
That is, if you can fit all the needed stuff in 20 l.
Looks good (and surprisingly like my REI FLash!) - but cheaper in France 18 EUR, than in UK 18 GBP! Cheeky buggers.

Jah... Only I think a tad heavier than Flash, but then again it also has a rope/crampon strap at the top.
