Re: MLD, Zimmerbuilt, HMG, Zpacs, ULA Packs
Like the other posters, I have also had pretty much all of those products at one time or another and agree they're real close to each other except Zpacks which is a bit below. I would just deci...

Re: Re: Re: Pack Fabric Selection
What about a VX42 bottom with X21/VX21 body? Depending on the area where you're bushwhacking that should work fine. Seems like that's a fairly common combo on BPL over the years and it shou...

I have a Zpacks Zero in black hybrid cuben that's 1700in. Side pockets and front mesh pocket. It's around 8.5 ounces I think. No complaints. ULA CDT - it's a great pack, but the Ohm...
