We survey light-weight internal frame packs with a maximum weight of 1.6 kg (3.5 lb) and a volume generally in the range 50 L to 75 L. Part 1A covers the very basics and lists all the packs in the survey; Part 1B covers the frame and harness which carry the pack itself; Part 1C covers the main bag and all the other pockets, plus the all-important question of comfort. Part 2 in this series covers the individual packs tested.
