The Cilogear 20L pack was designed specifically as an alpine climbing leader's pack. it is small so you can't lead with too much stuff (you're already carrying a rack and dragging a rope up) and streamlined, and rides high above the harness (I can chalk up just fine with it on) and narrow on the sides. for only 20L it weighs a whopping 10oz, but it is built with really tough high tech fabric (my partner says if it weren't for the cool fabric it would look like a little schoolgirl's pack) it also works well as a small daypack a big trailrunning pack, and a biking pack. If you are doing anything active and can fit it in 20L it is a great pack. with the 2 included removable straps it carries a climbing rope quite well under the lid, and it has clips in just the right spots to clip onto the back of the Cilogear 60L. The stretch mesh waterbottle pockets are great - they're there when you want them and gone when you dont. They are also nice for little odds and ends you want accesible, or even an ultralight windcoat. It looks like it will last a long time.
For what it was designed for it is simply amazing
