Their are a lot of reasons to throw BD stuff in the trash.

eureka ha
MH super scrambler 30L had the old model until it had holes in the bottom but the new material is bomber


and yes you can fit a doubles rack, 12 quickdraws, harness (a beefy one at that), food, two nalgenes, jacket, headlamp, phone, wallet, etc in a 30L. Put the rope on top and your set. Considering I wouldnt say im a pro at packing I can see all of this MAYBE fitting into a 20L but it would be tight tight squeeze

100% NOT trying to be a jerk here, but I would love to see you prove that in photos. I find at least 40L to be required for the equipment you describe, and would happily learn any tricks that would allow me to go with a smaller pack.

I have the 30L MH Scrambler. I can fit everything described above, but I choose to wear my harness instead of packing it. Doubles to BD 3.5 and one #4. And it doesn't require any special packing techniques.

I used to have a sub 1lb mec travel light pack that was supposedly 19 L but probably more like 25. I could fit a 70 m rope, rack, harness, shoes, a jacket, hat, gloves, first aid kit, sunglasses, guidebook, compass, headlamp all inside with a helmet and ice axe strapped to the outside. Unfortunately it got thrashed against the rocks. DannyUncanny
