Zimmerbuilt ultralight backpack. Black, VX21, cuben, lyrca, 12.8 ounces. on 04/24/2013 16:47:51 MDT Print View

I ordered this a few weeks ago but it looks like I need to get a new one made with a 21+ torso. I paid $200 shipped, it is still brand new and is a top of the line cottage pack.

Asking $140, email me at lipuid@gmail.com

Specs:
19 inch torso.
12x4.5x21.5 plus the cuben rolltop.
Vx21, 1.43 cuben rolltop
lycra mesh side pockets
hydration port and bladder loop
padded straps and hipbelt, good load transfer for frameless.
removable bungee system.
I can easily fit my 6-7 pound baseweight in here with half the space leftover for food.

Weight is exactly 12.8 ounces, and its possible to trim off excess length of the straps to save .5-1 ounce.

From the dimensions you list, it'd be ~20L, not counting the roll top and the exterior pockets?

With the use of the roll top and pockets it will be around 1500ci or 24-25l.

That is a nice pack.

FWIW I don't think it'd be a prohibitive amount of work for Chris or someone else to rip a few seams, pull the straps, and move them 2" higher. You might end up with a slightly less clean pack, but it'd fit you.

I asked him and he said it would not be a good idea actually. I'm just getting a new one built.

question about price on 05/05/2013 14:46:26 MDT Print View

How low would you drop? I realize making a low offer is sort of insulting, but this pack would be a "want" not a "need."
