Thanks for replying Jon
Interesting to hear from another Huckepack + NeoAir user - i guess we must be a pretty small crowd!
I think it's a good idea to use the 32" foam mat also, a very small weight penalty indeed, and a good dual use item. I've been thinking of doing the same, but right now i'm trying to shave every ounce i can (i'm trying to push myself into UL baseweight) - but it would definitely be easier to pack and compress the bag if i used one. Time will tell
Maybe i will get a shorter/lighter neoair, and can then justify to bring a short roll of foam pad...hmm
I use a black trash bag since i can't find trash compactor bags in Denmark - i need to be careful not to destroy it on longer trips. I've thought about having the trash bag inside the neoair, but i prefer to have it the other way around, so i wont risk having a wet neoair. But maybe i'm just being a bit to careful here?
Oh yes - the customization of the Huckepack - a very interesting topic :-)
Well...i took the safe (and boring) choice and went with the standard 2012 version. Being my first frameless pack, i wanted to have the possibility of returning it if i couldn't get used to this type of packing. I could!
I got the medium size, but in the 2012 version, there is not a choice of volume, so i automatically got 36L/48L + two 1L hip-belt pockets - enough for my needs, and being that small, a good way to stop extra gear from sneaking inside the pack...
The standard 2012 version is very slick! A good balance of materials and the red stitching on a totally black pack is nice...enough with the gear-porn...The majority is 70D silnylon except the back, bottom, hip-belt and the hip-belt pockets, which is X-PAC VX07.
Did you get a custom made version?
It would be interesting to know what the weight of an all cuben version would be.
Edit: added the volume
