At the moment for multi-day tours I lug a large pack to get to base camp and an additional daypack for doing day trips from the base camp. But it seems like there must be a better/lighter way to do things. Maybe just use the large pack for the day trips as well? Or find a super light day pack (but not much out there that can carry skis and tools etc)?? Get a smaller bag I.e 55L or so? Does anyone else find this an issue? How have you dealt with it?
