I've had the same pack for about 8 years (9?) now and its been great. Just a basic REI Ridgeline model. Anyway, its still good shape and I don't really need a new pack, but I know equiptment evolves almost every year and I wonder what opinions are regarding weight - would it be worth getting a newer pack to shave some weight or do you think the difference vs price is negligible?
any suggestions for a new pack? in the 65+ size..
