I received my new Halfpack dubbed the "2.6" from Chris Zimmer yesterday. Unfortunately, I was coaching a high school wrestling state tournament so didn't get to play with it until today. Pulled it out as soon as I was up this morning though.
Chris definitely makes a quality pack, certainly nothing flimsy about it. The pack in total weighed 334g (11.78 oz.) This includes two cuben hip belt pockets and the harness. The pack itself weighed 180g (6.35 oz.), the harness 101g (3.56 oz.) and the hip belt pockets were 26g and 27g (.92 and .95 ozs. respectively).
It felt pretty nice with what I plan on using for my SUL trips (may be cutting some weight when I finally get my IX quilts ready for my summer hammock camping) so I felt comfortable with removing some extras.
I cut all the excess straps off and removed two cordlocks on the side pockets as I'll only need the two closest. I also removed the four clips that help to hold the hip belt pockets in place. That being said, the updated weights are as follows:
Pack - 162g. (5.71 oz.)
Harness - 80g (2.82 oz.)
Pockets - 20g (0.71 oz.)
This is a weight savings of 52g or 1.83 oz. My guess is that with my SUL weights, I'll be able to only care the pack without the additional harness. Definitely excited to put this to use - for now it will be my emergency bag for when my wife goes into labor.
