I have been looking for a pack that would do what the Cierzo does for a long time. It is a light weight alpine pack designed to be carried in a big pack on the approach, then pulled out for the climb. I've had two other lightweight packs that were most uncomfortable when water and photography equipment were added to parka and clothes. This pack's suspension system, even though it's minimalist, works adequately. The slot for the foam pad doubles as a hydration sleeve. The zippers are water tight. My stuff in this pack didn't get wet in a thunderstorm on the South Sister.
