Will this pack fit a 3L Camelbak bladder, spare pair of gloves, socks, and goggle lenses, a multitool/knife/spare tubes/small headlamp/compact first aid kit, cell phone, small point and shoot camera and a Contour HD, small lunch/a couple Clif bars and an XL hardshell?

Looking for something lower profile than my Dakine Heli Pro DLX 20L for all day lift served adventures and winter MTBing and I'm debating between this, a BD Bandit, or an Osprey Karve 16 if 11L just isn't enough volume for my packing list.

For skiing I could probably go down to a 2L bladder if I needed to and do a 3L bladder and softshell or rain/wind jacket for MTB.

You are asking to fit quite a bit into this small pack. I would move up to the Karve 16 IMO.

Things I fit in my Karve 11--2L reservoir, down layer, 2 Clif Shots, a pair of sunglasses, a shovel blade, extra gloves, and my skins. All that fit in there barely and I was wishing I had the 16L. I agree with Mike, go Karve 16.

The 16 is perfect, and does have compression straps to really shrink it down. I have this and the BD Bandit, I choose this one everytime, more pockets, smarter design.
