The Edelrid Lite Bag 30 (LB30) is as an ultralight canyoning pack with adjustable shoulder straps and a minimal pack size. It's a simple, top-loading day pack with a drawstring closure at the top and a drainage hole in the base. Scramble have been using them as food bags and return journey "carry-on / travel packs" for the past few years. They offer their modified version here.
There was one weakness that the Lite Bag 30 had which had (until they fixed it) prevented Scramble from recommending it. The standard Edelrid LB30's drawstring cord stop, when under a heavy load (8 - 10 kg, perhaps beyond what Edelrid envisioned), wouldn't maintain its cinched closure and would drift open.

The product ships with original cord and cord-lock included as extras in a zip-lock bag.
For anyone interested in using the LB30 as a day-pack Scramble recommend a couple of additional items (or their equivalents) :
Edelrid have been making ropes for over 150 years. They invented kernmantle ropes in 1953 which greatly reduced rope breakage. In 2006 Edelrid became part of the Vaude Group, and are predominantly known for their climbing ropes, harnesses, carabiners and helmets.
