    I just made my new frameless pack, my internal frame pack is a gregory acadia, it fits me great, but it weighs 4.5 pounds. My new frameless weighs around .5 pounds. I haven't hiked with it yet, but 4 pounds difference makes me very happy

    Got any pics? That sure is light. I remember once thinking of getting a Gossamer Gear silnyon pak. Uberlight or something like that. Weighed a little over 3 oz.
    I think if i sneezed too hard that baby would rip.

    Frameless? Yea Baby!

    I love using my 8oz Gossamer Gear G5 to hammock backpack.

    But, I do use a torso length Ridgerest & it makes the GG G5's frame.

    The pack has a perfect lower compartment for a quilt / bag.

    Replacing the heavy, bulky tent with a HHULBP made the UL frameless pack work.

    Fanatic Fringer, the Gossamer Gear packs are more durable than I expected. I'll show you my Mariposa & the G5 if you want to get together.

    Enjoy,

    Egads

    i've looked at that line quite a bit. seems to be pretty popular w/ the light weight & ultra light crowd.
