Has anyone seen this pack? 3000 ci. and made out of sil nylon. The bottom is reinforced with I think cordura to toughen it up a bit. It has two generous side pockets to stuff bottles, etc. Two zip up pockets on the side that can hold a fair amount of gear. Two front pockets that could hold anything from fuel to stakes, etc. Two stays that are enclosed in a plastic sheet for the frame. Padding on the frame. A lid with a small zip up pocket inside to store keys, etc Hydration sleeve and two ports. It weighs 25 oz. and the best part of all it costs $65. I bought one just to try it out. I am leary of Columbia products but this pack looked pretty well made and might be a good beginner pack for the new ultra lighter.

Have you actually weighed it at 25oz? One of the sites I saw listed it at 35oz, but maybe that was a shipping weight. Please let us know.

The tag that I have says that it is 25 oz. Know you have me curious. I have it loaded with 4 days worth of food and gear. I am going to take everything out and weigh it. I will post the results this evening PST.

Here are some pics and low prices. Haven't ever done business with either of these companies.
