Great pack for overnight

Bought this pack for a trip to the Swiss Alps with two planned overnights at mountain huts. The size turned out to be just about ideal for that relatively light load. Ice axe carry worked very easily, but the rope attachment on top of the pack would not snug down very tight for an 8 mm x 30m rope. It carried fine, however, since the top flap holds the rope securely in place....the rope attachment is simply to keep it attached when you flip it out of the way to access the cargo compartment.

Hard to judge durability after just a week, but the build quality strikes me as very sound.

I plan to do some multi-day ski-touring next season, and this may be just the ticket for that.
