If we just came to face the fact that REI doesn't give a crap about what UL Backpackers think, we can move on. What bugged me out even more is the Outdoor Gear Lab results. Something weighi...

Re: Nice
Pretty sure the 30 was around 1.6 pounds and the 40 was just under 2. The 2 main packs were starting at 2.25 pounds.

Re: re: cost
