Re: poles size
According to the website 63cm to 135cm... Of the mainstream manufacturers I think Komperdell make probably the lightest adjustable/folding ones. The Carbon Ultralite Vario is 176 per pole, adjus...

I use a Crux AK-47X (http://www.crux.uk.com/en/rucksacks.php?range=1&product=3) for most of my trips. Similar weight to the ULA Circuit, no external pockets, slightly larger internal volume and...

Re: Bad?
"2 yards of cross grain weighs 8g, how would you fold where the waist and shoulder harness attaches with 1/2 seam allowance?" This is my problem. I have a chunky seam with like 8 piece...
