Product Description

The Go Lite Team Pack is an ultra-light, frameless backpack with enough space for light-weight weekend adventures or overnight trips. The pack is made from SiLite HG material, which is light-weight and strong. The pack has many hydration options and external pockets for easy access to essential gear. This pack, which is designed for adventure racing or fastpacking is good for up to 30 pound loads.

Features

The pack has one main compartment which is accessible from the top and a large mesh pocket on the back of the pack. It features two internal hydration sleeves (one 3-liter and one 2-liter). It also has two neoprene water bottle pockets as well as two mesh pockets on the side. These are good for water bottles or anything else you might want to stuff in them. Located on the hip-belt are two pockets good for storing small items.

Voted 4/5

For a lightweight backpack with no frame, this pack is a lot more comfortable than I thought. However, it must be carefully packed in order for it to be comfortable. Also, while you can take the pack up to 30 pounds, I would not recommend taking it over 20 or 25 pounds. The large number of pockets is very handy. When packet well, this pack is very comfortable.

I found it easiest to pack this backpack if I used small lightweight stuff sacks for my gear and then put them into the pack one on top of another. This gave the pack a sort of "frame."

Also, be careful to not over-stuff the main compartment too often. On a short weekend trip after about 7 months of use, I ripped a seam. Go Lite was very easy to work with and they replaced the pack at no charge. Even with the ripped seam, the pack held together well for the hike out because of the large mesh pocket on the back. But best to avoid ripping seams altogether if you can.
