My Locale Midwest
About Me My wife and I are originally from MI. We love to travel and hike. I've been an avid backpacker for over 20 years. After my first week long trip carrying #60 I started down the lightweight road. I like to make some of my own gear when I can. I've been a designer all my adult life, primarily in the automotive industry but also 6 years in aerospace.

not me
I prefer to have the best setup for each situation. For a dayhike or even a weekend I don't need a framed backpack. In fact I use my good old G4 (no frame)for any week long trips. For #30 or...

yikes!
I suggest that you have soneone fix it that is familiar with cuben fiber, MLD, ZPacks, etc. I would NOT send it back to your vendor. He obviously doesn't know how to work with CF. Good luck!
