We have decided that a rucksacks weight must lie in its contents and not in the sack itself. AirTech 22 is just 350 grams in Nylon Rip Stop in the Grivel exclusive yellow/black. All frills removed to reduce weight and bulk. The rucksack can be folded away into its hoodís pocket and only reappears when itís needed. Complete with a back pocket for the foam pad and an ice axe attachment. This new standard will be appreciated where the air is thin and every gram weighs like a kilo.

The Grivel Air Tech 28 is an near-excellent summit pack. I purchased mine nearly two years ago and love it. It is very light, folds up nicely when packing in a larger pack, and is very durable even though I have had many close calls with ice tools picks scraping across the fabric. the minimal padding and straps are optimally designed and make carrying the weight of the pack close to your body easy without much side-side sway. I would give this pack a 5 rating but have one qualm: it badly needs of an extra ice axe gear loop for carrying two tools to the base of alpine ice routes. if you can sew or have a girlfriend (or boyfriend) that does, buy the pack and custom sew one on your own. (PS: i additionally like the light weight and no-BS design of this so much that I find myself often grabbing it to transport journals, notebooks, and iPods between home and the lab)
