I recently was able to use this pack in a 7-day 250km desert race and found it was able to hold all my food and gear for the race including: Phantom 45F Sleeping Bag, 7 days rations (8 pounds of food) and some minimal clothing items. It's so incredibly light that it's amazing. Would highly recommend this pack and suggest taking it beyond its "24" image. Adding a front race pack accessory and a/or a waist pouch with water bottle holder increases capacity marginally in case you need it.

This pack is perfect lightweight adventure racing gear. Packs about 1/3 the size of the larger 32F rated Phantom. While I only utilized it in conditions down to 50F it kept me abundantly warm in outdoor and windy conditions. Would probably do the job to 5-10 degrees below the 45F rating if properly closed. Good cushioning as well. Slept on it for 7 days without a pad underneath on packed sand/semi rocky desert conditions.
