If you are after a stripped back, durable day pack for alpine adventures then the Goblin could be the one. The hardwearing, water resistant fabrics are more than capable of taking on climbing, scambling and hiking adventures alike.
Mountain Equipment says:
At 30 litres this neat, zip-top pack strikes the balance between minimalism and the volume required for bigger days out. Tough, lightweight and strippable, this is a pack that will go almost anywhere.
Mountain Equipment's Goblin has a generous 30L capacity for a versatile day pack. The strong, hardwearing fabrics used provide loads of protection for your kit, can easily withstand the scuffs and abrasions that come with being around rocks and also provide some resistace to rain. Most of the features are removable, including the foam back padding so you can really strip this down for fast and light ascents.
The large capacity is mostly in the main compartment which has a top opening to keep the outside of the pack clean and slim line. There is a top pocket for organising your essential items while other features include dual ice axe holders, daisy chains, strong grab handle and it is compatible with hydration systems.
