Equinox has been making ultralight silnylon backpacks for years. Their newest pack is the ARAS Eagle (I don't know what ARAS stands for), which has three distinctive features: a top pocket, a front bungie compression system, and a stiff mesh backpanel. Actually, the pack is loaded with features, as listed in the specifications table below. Unfortunately it only comes in one size (Medium) that fits torsos 17 to 19 inches (43 to 48 cm). If the pack fits you, and you like the feature set, then this may be the pack for you.
