Hi there I'm looking for a sub three pound pack with hip belt pockets out side mesh pocket(or somekind of pocket that I can toss a wet tarp in) as well as being bear canister compatable. A pack that could utilize my 3/4 length z-lite pad a part of the suspension (SMD) would be nice but is not a must. My base weight is 12lb's. Thanks for your time.
I have 2 of these and they are great. No frills just light. I fold a section of my Zlite pad and use as frame and it is right at 2 lbs.Plus they have role tops so they expand out to about 60+L I usually end up Carrie one of my girls sleeping bags in very top. It is good as long as you stay under 25 lbs total. I usually carry 18 including daughter's stuff.You can cut and strip it and get to 1.8 lbs if you don't mind mod's.
No doubt that the thruway is a super clean pack, and the fact that you can fit a part of a zlite in there make it that much better, also like the removable hipbelt. But its not the pack for me thanks for the offer though.
