I'd carry at least a small about of T.P. You may need want to use an outhouse in semi civilized areas like trailheads etc. Often they aren't stocked with T.P. I think Balls made it to mi...

Looks Cool
Very interesting, in a sense you've got a streamline external frame. Check out Davids article on the Paradox pack for a bigger and heavier version of this, might give you some ideas for round 2...

Re Ultimate Pack
