I love the Ibex, I would pay $30 more for it, but it's very close-cut. I'm talking about the L/S Woolies, 195 fiber count which I believe is their lightest weave.

Pack Comfort
Myself? I use a Boreas Buttermilk 40. It's about a pound heavier than most UL Barrel packs, but the tradeoff is a foam back that gives the entire pack a near-perfect structure that I can also u...
