I'm using it for ultra-light packing. It is a little heavy at 3 lbs, but I bought it because it's so comfortable it more than makes up for it by putting weight on my hips. Also the material is more durable than some ultra-light packs. I'm carrying 20 lbs and could trail run with it. The hipbelt has carry compartments but is still soft where it counts, the wraparound feature places the load snug on your back.
