Topic - Sub 1kg climbing packs?

Taurig - on 28 Apr 2014
Looking to reduce the weight I lug around the hills this year, and I think the biggest saving I can make is with my rucsac. Up til now I've been using a Deuter Guide 35+ year round; great for carrying winter loads, but it weighs something like 1.6 kg on its own.

I'm looking for a pack that is:
- less than 1 kg
- 20-30 L
- climbing design (no big sidepockets, rope loop, daisy chain or similar for attaching gear to outside)
- plain back, not mesh/frame nonsense.
- still fairly durable, prepared to accept a little more weight than some gosammer thin mountain marathon things that'll wear out after one chimney.

So far the Black Diamond Speed series is looking the most promising, but interested to hear recommendations, cheers.
