    Withdrawn: Gossamer Gear Mariposa

    I bought this Mariposa 2010 model last week from another member who had only used it for a weekend hike. It is a medium size, and after testing it this morning on a 5-mile hike, I found that it is a bit too long for my 17-inch torso. It is a beautiful pack, very light and well made. I will probably buy it in the small size (unless the new model medium size is smaller). Asking $104 shipped CONUS. Will also ship internationally for actual shipping charges.

    It is a beautiful pack at a bargain price. I'm kind of wishing I had asked more for it. I just might do that if I not taken soon. BTW, the belt is small size. I wear 32-inch pants and the belt fits just fine, with enough room to either cinch it up or loosen it up several inches.

    Yes, small size. Fits me at 32", with 2-3 inches left to tighten on either side of the buckle, and 4-5 inches left to loosen up. See uploaded pictures.

    No lid, it is a roll-top. You can see this somewhat on the first photo, which shows the strap going across the top of the pack. Don't know if the fabric strength is the same than the current model, sorry.

    FS: Gossamer Gear Mariposa

    I have this pack as does my son. It is a great pack.

    I believe the new model is Dyneema but this looks like the previous iteration. I love my Mariposa!
