The Speed 20 is Dynafit's black-and-white answer to the difficult question: "what backpack should I wear?" Loaded with enough features to satisfy the demands of weight-conscious mountaineers and ergonomic enough to use for races, the Speed 20 is a viable retort. One huge pocket with side-zip access takes care of safety equipment, extra layers, and food. A Velcro side-pouch can hold crampons or an extra water bottle. The body is made of 210D rip-stop nylon so durability will be the last thing on your mind. The Speed 20 is an updated version of the RC 20 which has your back but won’t hold you back.
- Honeycomb Superlight nylon is a tough 210-denier rip-stop.
- Adjustable-height sternum strap helps dial in skin access.
- Anatomical Airmesh back keeps air moving where it should.
- Removable shoulder-mounted bottle holder has a heat-reflective lining.
- Velcro crampon pouch can also be used for layers or what-have-you.
- Ice-axe holder and safety box round out the complete pack.
- Hydration-compatible compartment and shoulder strap.
- Ski-carry system can be detached for vertical/simple races.
- Waterproof internal security pocket keeps your secrets.
- Helmet holder expands from a horizontal zipper along the bottom of the pack.

Questions & Reviews
Yes this pack will work just fine for skimo races! It's got all the features you're looking for to make those speedy transitions but still has a bit more room in case you want to use it for general touring as well.
That is part of the ice axe carry system that secures the handle of the ice axe.
Another question relating to size. Does this pack fit smaller people? I’m around 165cm. Or do you have another recommendation?
Best regards from Erik.
