    I have heard your confession I know who you blame
    If you had it all back you'd just lose it again
    Can't bank on redemption if you ain't saved
    Don't bring me your tales of temptation and loss
    Don't bring me the pieces of your shattered cross

    You may want to check out Six Moon Designs Starlite. http://www.sixmoondesigns.com/shop/shopexd.asp?id=34

    I enjoy mine, it's light & comfortable and really has a good design. Not as light as some of the other ultralight designs out there but at 25 oz it feels like helium compared to my almost 7 pound Gregory Lassen...

    SMD - Swift Pack: I have not carried this pack but I noticed that Six Moon Designs had this pack on clearance for $75 brand new. It weighs 15 oz and is designed for a base gear weight 12# http://www.sixmoondesigns.com/shop/shopexd.asp?id=60

    Thanks guys. I am leaning towards a ULA Circuit right now. Gotta get the rest of my gear set and then see what size I need!
