GoLite has redesigned their entire pack line for 2007, replacing 28 previous packs with a new line consisting of 9 packs. The Quest at 4250 cubic inches is a mid-sized pack in their new Venture Series which replaces their Unlimited Series intended for lightweight backpacking and mountaineering. GoLite got it right with their new pack line, and especially with the Quest. It's right on target for the lightweight backpacker in terms of volume and load-carrying capacity and feature set. At only 3 pounds 3 ounces and a volume to weight ratio of 83.3 cubic inches per ounce, it's a half pound lighter and more weight efficient than its competitors. It's also a good value.
