After a few threads and much research I ended up purchasing a ULA ohm, and TT moment.
Im my quest to lighten my load, the ohm was not the lightest option, but seamed to provide the most functionality and support, especially for its weight.
As for the Moment, I couldn't find anything else that could compete with the combination of simplicity, protection, and weight.
Im pretty pumped for the new gear. Im probably not going to make my goal base weight of 10 lbs, but should be close to 11. I easily cut my pack weight in half, and made little sacrifices to comfort or function.
Its gonna be a light season, and lots of new gear to try out!
