    WTB lighter weight pack

    So I have decided it is time to upgrade my oversized and extremely heavy pack. I have no problem giving a much loved and used pack some more love and use, and can't justify some of the new pack prices out there with my budget just to shave a few pounds. If you have something laying in the back of your closet you might be considering parting with, let me know, I'm open to considering all options.

    some specs: I'm 5'8" and 155lbs so I'm looking for a fairly small pack/belt. preferably under 3lbs or so.

    Also intrigued by the Molly Mac, so if you A) have one you aren't using (rare I know) or have more DIY skills than me and made a pretty good copy yourself, its something I'd definitely look at.

    Again, as long as it holds gear, wear and tear is not too big of a deal, I am capable of repairs, just not sewing a whole pack.

    Thanks!

    keep your eye on the for sale thread, lots of good gear comes through there, and people on here are really good at taking care of their stuff

    Golite is having a great sale right now, I just picked up a 35L Jam for $70. The 50L is going for $80, 70L for $90.

    I bought myself a 50L jam and love it so far. And you can't beat the price at 50% off and I also hear that if you rate something on their site they send you a email with a coupon code for another 10% off. The pack is sub 2 lbs but is frameless so if you have alot really heavy/ bulky gear it might not be the best option
    Look to this day: For it is life, the very life of life. In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of your existence. The bliss of growth, the glory of action, the splendour of achievement are but experiences of time.

    For yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision; And today well-lived, makes yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well therefore to this day; Such is the salutation to the ever-new dawn!

    I love the AARN's. The Golight Women's Pinnacle sure is nice looking, just don't need another pack, but the $59 price tag sure is nice.
    Happy Hangin!!!
