Out of curiosity can you tell me why you plan to carry your sled or, for that matter, all your gear in your pack at times? Wouldn't you pull your sled even on steep sections instead of carrying it? Also, climbers are in a similar scenario on mountains such as Denali and we always pull our sleds with a light load in them like just our sleeping bags. This way we can go with smaller, lighter packs.
Good luck on your trip and let us know how it goes.
I'll add my 2 cents for the Osprey 85. Mine has served me well. It also compresses very well to make do as a summit pack.
I own a Aether 85 and its super. Compresses well and fits perfect. Its real light weight but still pretty tough.
