    This is an interesting pack with a couple of novel design features. The most obvious is the dry-bag style top. This has been discontinued in favor of a zipper in 2013, which helps explain the serious discount to this, the old version.

    The second novel feature is the folding 20x48 inch sleeping pad that takes the place of a frame sheet. The pad fits in a pocket between the shoulder pads and the body of the pack. It is comprised of four sections, each 10x24, sewn together so they fold easily. It is a thin eighth-inch thick dense foam that sticks well smooth materials like tent floors. If you have ever pitched you tent on ground that is not perfectly level the advantages are evident. The pad will keep you from sliding about, and add some insulation to a conventional pad or air mattress as well.

    The white fabric on the bottom and front of the pack is a very tough ripstop material that should handle rough treatment. In addition to the sleeping pad there is also a corrugated frame sheet in the middle of the back of the pack, and a smooth frame sheet backing the lumbar pad. The sleeping pad holds the whole thing together, sort of (I wish it had a couple of light fiberglass stays). The bottle opener is functional, though not the first thing I think of as a pack accessory.

    The pack seems larger than its stated capacity. It tips my scale within an ounce of its stated weight. There are no pockets. The overall quality is excellent. This is a genuine ultralight pack in a market where that term is often abused.

    I personally haven't used this pack but I've done 2 or 3 california 14er's w/ a buddy that has it and raves about it. I've tried it on fully packed and was amazed w/ comfort/fit and had to get one myself.
