Enduroflex frame on 01/20/2011 05:59:33 MST Print View

Do you know how much this weighs? It's used in Outdoorproducts branded packs.

I can only find the weight for a more deluxe frame that has the suspension. That thing is over 5 lbs. The suspension must be heavy because there are full packs sporting the frame that are ~3 pounds.

Had Peak 1 pack from Coleman way back when. Had a similar frame that was over 2 pounds. Did work OK though.

Ken - I still have that peak 1 wasting away in the back of my gear closet. I remember I grabbed it a few years ago and if I remember right it was over 2lbs.

2 pounds is a bit more than I was hoping the frame would weigh, but I think I can work with it.

Modify the frame? on 01/21/2011 22:19:21 MST Print View

I wonder if you could take this basic frame and cut off sections and substitue them with aluminum arrow shafts, etc. to make it lighter? Join it with tie-wraps?

You know, if you really wanted to lighten things up...
It wouldn't be terribly difficult or too expensive to purchase a sheet of finished carbon fiber and route out a similar design with a Dremel.
