Hey all -
I know there is no shortage of talk about the GG Gorilla around here, but searching through posts left me with a few questions. I hope I'm not being too repetitive.
1) what would the maximum tolerable weight be? I realize ideal comfort probably maxes out around 25-27lbs, but on a long haul between water sources, with a bear canister(early in hike and full of food), carrying gear for my wife or any of those other things that conspire to increase pack weights. Would it be ok up to 35 or even 40lbs?
2) Can a z-rest be substituted for the back pad? Will it fit into the pad compartment? Probably cut down to just 6 panels and maybe trimmed. Does anyone else do this? I love everything I read about this pack, but don't know if I'll ever use that provided pad for anything but the pack frame.
Thats really it. Other than that, I'm totally sold.
