If you always wanted one of these, but the price was too high. This is your chance. The pack has about 20 nights in it, and shows no signs of wear. The dri-sacks are included for the pack and front pockets as well.
I am selling this Aarn featherlite freedom pack because the torso height of the pack is a too big for me. Im getting the same pack again, but sizing down to a small in the torso. I cut some straps off this pack to make it lighter. About 3 Inchs was taken off each strap on the front balance pockets. With these off i can still cram 1 liter of water, several mountain house meals, trail mix, maps, beef jerky, gorp + more in each pocket. I reattached the cut off sections of shoulder tightening straps and load lifter straps since i assumed a buyer would want those in case their body was bigger than mine. They still slide through the plastic piece, you just have to feed it a bit when you try to pull the sewn together piece through. I can do it with one hand. I had this all dialed in to fit me perfectly, then i cut off the excess. The straps to cinch down the pack was also cut shorter, there are three of these. One on the left, one on the right, and one on the front. They still allow the pack to expand to full capacity, excess was just cut off. I found that this pack had tons of unnecessary extra strappage. The cut of portions in no way affect the functioning of the pack, it works just fine, balancing as it should. See the link at the bottom for a gallery of the pack.
Orange boxes are straps that were cut shorter, the shoulder and load lifter straps were reattached.
Blue boxes were excess strappage that was cut off.
The hip belt is completely removeable so in the worst case scenario that it is too small for you, just order another one from aarnusa.com
