Got mine around 1996. Great pack for fast/light mountaineering and ski touring. Really tough construction -- pretty hard to destroy this thing, and it's light. Nice tubes for ice tools/ice axe and crampon straps. No stupid bells and whistles.

Drawbacks... not comfortable for carrying a really heavy load, but that's not what it's intended for. Great otherwise.

This pack is a great mountaineering daypack! It has two axe tubes with straps to attach crampons in between. The main compartment is very spacious with three compression straps on either side and closes with two draw cords: a lower one and one atop an extension tube. The lid pocket is +/- 400ci with ample room for lots of small items like a head lamp, small camera, goggles, etc. On the bottom of this pocket is convenient map pocket. The material is quite tough and VERY waterproof. I'm sure that it will be able to withstand any downpour when I seal the seams. Another plus of this pack is its weight. It comes in between 2.75 to 3 pounds.

There is no frame other than the removable foam back pad. Even though it is such a large daypack, when I remove the foam pad, it is compact enough to be lashed to a larger pack.

The straps of this pack are quite comfy, and it is quite a large daypack, but I don't think that it is large enough, or sturdy enough (no frame), to carry winter overnight gear. Also, it does not have many external straps, When I want to carry more than will fit inside I use my Dana Terraplane Overkill instead.
