Apex wrote:@Autoxfil, how do you think the Cilogear 45L pack would perform for backpacking aswell? Looks very attractive, can cinch it down small for day cragging and summit, yet expand it hugely for expeditions (correct me if I'm wrong here). Slightly worried about the customization of it, as I wouldn't really have a clue how to set my pack up.

- Cold Cold World Chernobyl (49 L) - 3 lb 4 oz
- Osprey Variant 52 - 3 lb 12 oz
- Gregory Alpinisto 50 - 4 lb 11 oz
The Gregory seems heavy, but should (in theory) be quite comfortable. I know the Variant and CCW packs come highly recommended. Anyone have direct experience with the three listed above? Thanks.
