    Hi Stephen

    Do not equate the size of the pack with its weight! Big mistake!

    My pack weighed about 12 – 13 kg, with food for a full week in it, plus everything one might need for extreme bad weather and sub-zero conditions. We got the extremes all right.

    Thing is you see, when the pack is large you don’t need to really compress everything. So I didn’t. But I did have a winter down bag, and over-quilt, puffy, etc. Just not compressed real hard.

    I suspect that Polartec may sometimes buy in a fabric rather than make it themselves. They all do that. Under magnification they do both look very similar.

    Anyhow, thanks for the article.
    Cheers
