I packed the Widow II for years. Lost by the Atl airport !!!! I can't seem to find a Black Widow anything anymore. Anyone got one for sale???

Absolute best pack ever!! With a little extra reinforcements on the umpteen straps, amazingly comfortable after a thirty miler to get it all situated. Only pack I ever seen with upper lumbar that worked. And baffles that work with.

Eureka has finally made a pack worthy to review. On a recent trip to big basin redwoods, this pack handled extremely well. We did a simple 4 mile overnight trip that turned into an adventure. The park itself is closed due to multiple storms and serious trail damage. I was climbing through mudslides, ducking under and hopping over trees every 50 feet. The compression system works well and i felt comfortable the entire trip.

The black widow is new for '98 and I love it. I also bought the Atlas but I have yet to try it out.
