Mountain Hardwear debuted a number of packs from their new pack line coming out next spring. Their 11 ounce Scrambler is reasonably light, and tough with its 100 denier Cordura fabric. They achieve their weight savings by keeping features to a miniumum; there are no water bottle pockets or hip belt. It does have a single ice axe loop, daisy chain, 1/4-inch EVA backppanel pad, and zippered top hood. At only 1600 cubic inches, it would be hard to get more than an overnight into it.
