Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've gone through several small, lightweight packs looking for a great day-hiker as well as one that could be used for one day alpine climbs such as Mt. Hood in Oregon. This pack fits the bill 99.9%. The front strap water bottle pockets allow me to leave the hydro bladder at home. It has carry loops for ice axes and enough space for gear and a small rope. The roll top allows you to expand or reduce capacity as needed. The only thing keeping it from being 100% or 5 stars are the stupid roll top buckles. They are one way buckles meaning they only click together one way. So if you've got the opening rolled up and it is not aligned, you either have to do another roll or unroll to have the buckle correctly lined up. Not a deal breaker by any means, but I can't figure out why they would ever consider using that type of buckle. Otherwise, it is pretty much perfect. My goal is to see if I can get everything in it for an overnighter--then I would truly have achieved ultralight status :-)

Just picked a pair of these for summer hiking and trail running. I send back way more shoes than I keep because of hard to fit feet. These were comfy right out of the box. I wore them around town for a few days and then took them on an 8 miler in the wet woods with lots of ups and downs. My feet stayed dry and comfy the whole time! I’m thinking about the boot version for Kili next year.

Is there any way to tell if these crampons will work with the Lowa Cevedale boots? The boots do have a heel welt that works with hybrid crampons, but I love the weight savings. My use is summer cascades volcano climbing. Nothing technical, pretty much snow and icy snow. Thank you.
