Cue gratuitous pictures!

This is what I did on a 2 week Rocky Mountain tour a couple of years ago. I used a MEC 20L Raptor pack for hiking day trips on a wide Filzer PR-4 rack. Now with my modest UL gear I could do a spartan overnighter or weekend (1 man tent, thermarest, Hot Core 100 bag) but would have to pack smart. For a long day hike it was fine.
