Weight
I would be interested in knowing the weight also. The pack reminds me of my Zimmerbuilt Quickstep with a few more features. The Summit is about 12oz, so I am guessing this pack is about 14oz or so ...

Solo

Square footage
Comparing the cuben DuoMid with the SoloMid, you get more floor space and it is taller for an extra 2oz. The extra room is a luxury for me. It would be neat to see them both set-up next to each oth...

socks
For hikes of more then three days I will carry three pairs. Two are for hiking and one is dedicated to sleeping only. Nothing beats having a dry pair of socks for sleeping every night no matter the...
