Cilo Gear is a smaller company based in Portland, Oregon and they still produce 100 percent of their packs in the USA with quality that is second to none. The 60L WorkSack, like the Mountain Hardwear South Col 70, is a minimalist pack with alpine and mountaineering features. This pack is an excellent option for backpackers and trekkers looking to shed a little weight but still want a durable pack. This pack is light but not crazy light and still features a fairly burly suspension (that is easily stripped down) but with more minimal shoulder straps and waist belt. The pack feels lighter than the scales dictate and feels way bigger than its 60L name would suggest. The same goes for all the Cilo Gear packs; we think the volumes run small and you should expect a slightly bigger pack in whatever volume you are looking for… bonus!Items:
-Wasn't as comfortable as some of the slightly lighter packs.
-Lid didn't fit over the pack very well
-Best designed features of a pack for climbing and mountaineering
-Suspension was only okay; it's the same as the smaller packs but not quite good enough for this pack
-Way bigger than its 60L size would suggest
