My old Berghaus Arete 35 has finally died, so I'm looking for something similar, mainly for climbing (rock and winter) but also day walks.  I've had a good look around but can't really find anything that looks good.

Does not have to be 35 litres anything up to 40ish would be fine.

Thanks

Jason

'Ryx Alpha's, but they be spendy.

New Blue Ice sacks also look stellar. Might get one to replace the orig. Warthog I have.... in like a millenia or so, when it finally breaks.

I second the recommendation for the Arc'teryx Alpha FL. I bought one a couple of years ago as an alpine daysack, and figured it'd see very little use on account of how terrifyingly light it feels. Misgivings were misplaced; the thing is bombproof and now gets dragged everywhere from Curbar to Chamonix.

The main selling points for me are that it is entirely devoid of clever features and straps, and that it's essentially waterproof and doesn't need faffing about with drybags or covers to keep stuff dry in inclement weather. Quite a useful feature for Scotland...

Take a look at the Aiguille Alpine website. very light, no frills and bombproof. Proper rucksacks.

Very happy with my Deuter Guide 35. Quality pays.

These questions are difficult to answer because no one has used a dozen packs and everyone has different requirements. I personally like my ortovox trad 35 but not the ones so much the exped core.

Thank everyone, some nice suggestions, think I'm going to go for an Arc'Teryx one probably the ALPHA AR 35, looks like an exact replacement for the old one, plus I know that this is a company with a good reputation. 

Was not sure about the Deuter Guide due to the lack of bungee cord and the extra zips.

Thanks

Yep. +1 (after exhaustive comparisons, but my criteria might be different)

How do you know any of these will fit your back without trying them on?

If your pockets are not deep enough for arctryx, how about one of the simond bags from decathlon? £40 gets you a 35l sack available in 2 different back lengths. I've got one, and I'm pretty happy with it.
