This line of packs in three different models, each in small, medium and large suspension, is possibly best value available for internal frame packs.

They come in 40 liters, 50+ and 70 liters and are dirt cheap and extremenly light, functional, simple and well-made. I have the 50+ but in hindsight might prefer the 40L size at $89 Canadian.

I dunno what the other reviewer is thinking. The Brio is an entry level pack that is not intended to be light weight at all. It weighs 2.1kg (4.5lbs) for the 50 liter (3000c"). A similar pack but designed to be lightweight could weigh almost half of that (ie. GoLite Pursuit)

These packs are very affordably priced but that's all they have going for them.
