Skeptical, I loaded up this 18 oz beauty. Hammock, over- and underquilts, tarp, bushbuddy and pot, etc + 4 days food made it in! The extension collar accomodated the other 2 days food.
Oh but the load...24 lbs. With water plentiful I opted to carry only a liter. This was gonna hurt. But, lo, the carbon fiber suspension hoop magically transfered most weight to the conforming waist belt (from which I took my camera for a panoramic shot..and a snack). It rode like a Cadillac! I have forgotten all about my 2 1/2 lbs. Osprey Atmos 35.
Days of bushwhacking and nary a nick on this tough dyneema fortress. With dwindling load the compression straps.....wh, what?
It's only a dream? A @#*#! dream? NOOOO! Please Mr. ULA (Croatian?), a teaser. Anything. I'm in pain here.
