I thought this might be interesting. Its the closest I've found to the old Tozi Kletter packs. Ali

I like it. Looks kind of like a cross between a golite ion and several mld/gg/smd/rei flash kind of packs. Is this new or has anyone had any experience with this pack?

I've been searching tnf website once a month for years waiting for this to come back out. At this price it may be my ultimate pack. I still love my ION but it falls short of a one bag type pack. Ok i'm wierd but I am a minimulist and cant stand having too much stuff. Ali

Looks like a great pack. Is it brand new? I can only find 2 websites that sell it.

one size on 02/24/2009 18:20:15 MST Print View

it's a one size fits all pack? the good thing about the ion is how long and tall it is, and coming in three sizes, you can actually get one to fit. i'd doubt a one-sizer would fit my long torso length. looks like a good pack though, if it fits you. of course, at about the same weight (and lots more money) you could have a great MLD, etc. pack of Dyneema.

It's not full Dyneema like you can get from McHale. It's 210D nylon with a Dyneema ripstop grid sewn in. Same fabric used in the GoLite UL line and the ULA packs.

TNF Flyweight Rucksack - Pictures on 03/04/2009 03:20:30 MST Print View

This is not a review, but I got my $35 pack from backcountry.com today. I travel a lot for business, and thought it might be great to throw in my suitcase with a few other items. Since I often take little side trips.

Here are some pictures.

It folds into its own pouch, which becomes an inner storage pocket. It sits inside the inner pocket which will fit a GG NightLight Torso length pad (barely).

625


Here it is next to my ULA Conduit, which I have not unpacked from this weekend. I threw a sleeping bag into TNF pack so it would stand up. The pack is speced at 30L capacity.

626



It has a top lid with a storage pocket in it.

627


The shoulder pads have a lightweight padding in them and are 2 1/2" wide.

628

Has a thin waist belt.

629

Has a compression strap on each side.

630

Has two side pockets and one rear pocket. Uses some really flimsy feeling elastic inside the top seam.

634

Here is the top with draw cord.635


I decided to try and transfer everything from my Conduit used this weekend (quilt, bivy, poncho/tarp, Caldera stove, torso pad, clothes, etc. and it all fit. I have two empty 1L Platypus bags, and they will fit if filled with water. Pretty amazing.

636

Pretty good for 35 bucks. But I wouldn't take it on a weekender, without trying a couple of day hikes. I usually need to carry 4 liters of water for desert trips, so it probably would not be as comfortable as my Conduit, nor it is made a well. The material is 70D ripstop nylon, so it should be sturdy. The question is how could they construct it with quality at that price. But if I was included to move into SUL, the pack is big and light enough.
