I like the Golite Infinity, which was previously reviewed on this site but the Continuum is nearly identical with just a smaller volume, 2050 ci according to Golite (without hood, the volume for the long is probably a little more).
The weight for the Continuum without hood for the long is 958g (2lbs 1.75oz). I’m thinking of removing the back pockets from mine because I just don’t need the volume.
I don’t have a big need for volume. As I’ve gone to a lighter pack, the volume is also reduced dramatically. However, I backpack in the desert frequently and water is not that dependable. Consequently, I frequently have more weight than someone that can get by with a liter or less of carried water weight.
In my opinion, the comfort of the Continuum is well worth the little extra weight of the pack itself.
I don’t have anything to do with C & C Outdoors (other than being a customer), but you can buy a Continuum from them for $95 with free shipping. They had some for $65 but they are now gone.
I generally backpack without trails, so a small pack is a big plus.
