A tight fit space wise for an overnighter. I was able to pack all my essentials for a trip up Mt. Baker. Comfortable around 30 lbs, designed to ride high above waist line. Main benefit is the clean design, it's very water resistant and loved the cover for your hydration tube. Still it left me with a sore back, and I had to exchange the large for a regular size.

Here's what other sites are saying:

Vertical rock, ice and snow are what the Gritty calls home. It's lightweight and compact but capacious and gear-friendly enough for the two-day alpine-style push. An ingenious strap system down the front panel secures ice tools and crampons, and has accessory lash points for attaching skis, etc. Lightweight, removable aluminum stays help contour and stabilize a heavy load; the removable foam pad may be used as a bivy seat. The differential-cut doubleweave ShiftLayer nylon fabric combines a base layer sewn under tension with a floating top layer to absorb friction and reduce abrasion (in the way that liner socks reduce blisters). A climbing rope can be stowed neatly under the lid. An Autofit harness allows quick adjustments to the stretch-woven, molded foam shoulder straps and split waistbelt (which stabilizes the load over the lower back and hips). Hydration pocket with hidden tunnels to keep tubes out of the way, and compression straps to stabilize the bladder, no matter its volume.

The Patagonia Gritty Pack is a lightweight, durable, versatile backpack for fast-and-light alpine ascents and backcountry touring. The Gritty is made with ShiftLayer nylon that has two independent layers to reduce friction and protect against the harsh environment of the alpine world. At only 2lb 3oz, this Patagonia pack is light enough for climbers who count ounces as they pack, and the removable stays cut weight even further. Its reverse-opening lid is easily accessible while hanging from a belay and creates a clean profile to shed snow and water. The Patagonia Gritty pack also has an insulated sleeve for your hydration system to keep water accessible and keep it from freezing. When it's time to bivy, pull out the removable fold-out back panel to insulate your upper body on whatever ledge you come across.
