My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me I have been backpacking a little over 3 years now, but in that time I have logged a number of trail miles and went through a lot of gear trying to find my sweet spot. Now, thanks to cuben fiber, alcohol stoves, down and of course a better understanding, my TPW has severly dropped! My cold weather BPW is 9 - 10 lbs and my warm weather BPW is 5 - 6 lbs.
About 95% of the time I hike with family or friends and in the SouthEastern states. My favorites places to get away are anywhere along the AT as well as in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Re: ZPacks Exo comparative capacity
I had the SMD Swift, and it was very very close (if not the same) to the same capacity as my ULA Circuit. http://sticksblog.com/gear/my-current-gear/backpack/six-moon-designs-swift/

Re: waterproof for the front pockets.
I may be flogged for saying this, but I still use a pack cover to keep the items in my front and side pockets dry. My cuben fiber pack cover weighs 1.2 oz and I will probably get a size small for m...

Before I ordered both my ZPacks Blast 30 pack or my Zero pack I was able to try them on. I got lucky though as another UL hiker shipped a bunch of stuff out to me to try out before ordering and the...

Re: Re:
Travis, I do not think that putting the ground sheet under the mesh would be a good idea. This will only make water easier to pool up where you are, even with the bathtub floor. The mesh actuall...
