>Let's hear it for the LuxuryLite.
Yeah, that's some pack; it rides like a dream. I use mine when I'm carrying a lot of family or group gear, and I pack an extra cylinder in case I'm forced to be the "beast of burden." It's a great trail pack, since all of the weight is nicely distributed on the hips, and while the pack can move around the force is fairly stable. I added some cord loops to my Camelbak Unbottle and hooked it over the top of the packframe--instant hydration system. IMHO, the typical "loosy-goosy" comment is a good point. I wouldn't use it off-trail or for ski-packing because the packframe is not affixed to the waist belt. I bought the LuxuryLite packframe and added the NeoTrekk (now Condor?) cylinders--a few ounces more but a savings of hundreds of dollars.
