Berghaus Mach 24 rucksack (2008)

At 672g this ultralight rucksack is very light; can strip down to 642g; internal compression system keeps outside neat; padded hipbelt fins with pockets; three external elasticated pockets; internal and external lid pockets; hydration unit-compatible. But it has only 24 litres capacity; gear can’t be stashed on outside; less reflective than other packs.
Great for walkers, but racers may want more capacity and features.
