Weight: 12.3 oz
Measures approximately 34x10x8 inches (my measurements by tape)
This is an original pack produced summer 2019 and DOES NOT incorporate a modular shoulder strap system (advertised on the website today).
This pack is very basic (no loops for a hip belt accessory or back pad attachment points). The pack is cut from a single piece of fabric and closed with two side seams to increase its water resistance. The seams are not taped, however.
It has a stretchy continuous front/side pocket and a bottom pocket (blue section), as well as 6 separate pockets on the vest-style shoulder straps.
This pack is a ‘small’ torso size of approximately 18” (not so important since it’s a frameless pack with no no hip belt). The 40L capacity includes the pocket volume…the interior is roughly 31L (25L to the collar).
I used this pack for approximately 20 day hikes and 6 overnights. I was hoping to be able to use it for thru-hiking but I’ve since determined that it’s just too small a volume to meet my needs. You need to be very committed to a minimalist, ultralight kit with this pack. But it’s great for overnights and short trips.
As far as wear/alterations go, due to little use and also because I take very good care of my gear, the pack is in excellent condition. The shoulder pocket material shows a little wear from items I’ve stuck inside. The wear doesn’t amount to holes…it just looks more worn as you can see by the light spots in the picture. Also, I trimmed a little off the ends of the chest straps but I think there should be a sufficient amount left for adjustments to a bigger chest size. If not, Nashville Packs can furnish new chest straps. The Liteskin (main body of the pack) looks brand new, with no holes, abrasions, or even creases.
