Keeping up with your lifestyle.
Lightweight and abrasion resistant, the Millet Prolighter Summit 18L Backpack was made for life on the wall. Created with honeycomb nylon and high denier polyester designed to keep up with rugged mountain lifestyles, the Prolighter features a slim, clean-cut shape that keeps a low profile when you're working in vertical space. An innovative rolling closure system maximizes compression and can expand the 18L volume by an additonal 10L when you're packing lunch, layers, or extra gear. Toggles and two gear loops on the front of the pack provide a secure spot for your ice axes while two zippered side panels keep topo maps, pocket knife, snacks, and other necessities easily accessible at belay station rest stops.

- Q & A
Great little day pack
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I needed a pack to do day trips where I carry the 10 essentials, ie water, more water, compass, altimeter, knife, first aid kit, lunch, sweatshirt, wind breaker. cell phone and map and some more water. I have bigger packs but the stuff all just lays in a heap in the bottom of them. I wanted something that wouldn't weight more than the gear, had pockets for outside organization, and easy access, and enough room to carry both my sweatshirt & lunch and my wife's. This pack fits the bill. And I love the design. Millet has been around for years and they know what works. I don't need some fancy hip strap, I don't want outside pockets where my water bottle will fall out. I like the roll top with a zipper. In a pinch it could serve as a bivi sack for my feet. In fact I have a canvas Millet sack I picked up at an estate sale from the 1950's. This one probably won't last that long as nylon degrades in sunshine faster than canvas. But I expect this to last me quite a long while.
