Voted 4/5

This is the largest ultra-lite pack I could find. At first, I was skeptical about the pack having no frame, but once loaded correctly it is very comfortable. The key is how it it packed and how the load is distributed. Basically, you have to totally fill it up because the filled pack is the "support". The other thing I like about it is that it is full featured with the daisy chain, haul loop, mesh pockets, and hydration pocket. It's light enough and compacts enough to be a summit pack too.

Cons: The pack needs a little more padding on the hip belt. It also needs two straps on the bottom for lashing stuff. Finally, the durability has yet to be seen, but appears to be limited. I'll edit my review after a few more trips.

Overall, however, for a 2 lb, full-size pack, it is pretty nice.
