Gentle suggestion: name your price if you'd like to pull any fence-sitters into action. Also, what size are you looking for?

Good luck,

Rick

EDIT: I have a MS WRAITH, not a GHOST. Sorry for the mixup!

Cheers, regarding size..wasn't being specific as am looking for either small or large (either for GF or myself...she's lugging a 2.5kg monster and I an Osprey Aether 60 that could be improved upon).

On price, depends upon condition, but willing to pay a fair price...Douglas I'd defintiely be keen to see some pics :).

Ghost Pack on 04/05/2011 19:48:24 MDT Print View

I have a blue Mountainsmith Ghost pack. This one came out before the green model and is slightly larger, has more durable fabric, and has a much wider, more comfortable hip belt. The pack weighs 2lbs 9oz on my postal scale. I believe its a size large. I'm 5'9 34 inch waist and it fits.

I've actually only used the pack on a few trips (usually pack too much), which tells me that it may be time to let it go to someone who will get better use out of it. A small amount of the fabric is slightly worn on bottom of the pack where the bottoms of the support arch rest on the ground when the pack is set down. I also see two very small (smaller than an eraser) worn areas on pack bag. There are no holes anywhere.

I would be willing to sell for $80 + actual shipping cost to you. Let me know if you are interested. Email me brycenerland at hotmail dot com.

Byrce, great to hear from someone keen to sell.

I'm 6'2 and the GF in 5'4 though...so I think your bag will fall in the middle if you are 5'9...probably a medium? Unfortunately as the harness doesn't adjust, I'm not sure that'll work.

Thanks again though...does anyone else have a Large or Small?
