I love frameless backpacks, especially the really light ones. With a volume of 3800 cubic inches and weighing 8.1 ounces, the Gossamer Gear G5 Hyperlight backpack has a volume to weight ratio of 469 cubic inches/ounce. The Hyperlight achieves this remarkable statistic through the use of spinnaker fabric, which seems like tissue paper, but is surprisingly strong and durable.
