Summary

Two-pound backpack for $56 shipped! Great ultraLight backpack.

Pros

  • Well built
  • .93 Kg.
  • Superior sewing and components.
  • Rides well with no ill effects.
  • Have tons more room than I need for multi-nighters

Cons

  • 14-day shipping is the only con.

I am 62 and have a real bad heart and wanted to backpack again after a 45-year hiatus. I bought this Chinese/Aliexpress Backpack and couldn't be happier. Would I love a ZPacks Arc? Heck yes, but this does as well for not much more weight. I have taken it on two trips so far since my decision to backpack six weeks ago and I really could not be happier.

  • Capacity: 40+16 Liters
  • Dimensions: 80cm*30cn*22cm Back length:about 52cm
  • Net weight: 0.93kg
  • Zipper: YKK
  • Buckle: DURAFLEX
  • Material: 210D Nylon
  • Color: Gray, Orange, Blue

Frame: you should use foam mattress as the frame! I have used it twice with the Therm-a-Rest Z Lite Sol mattress as a frame, but recently got some corrugated plastic and made an ultralight frame as I now use a blowup mattress. I LOVE this pack and being forced into Social Security the price was perfect!
