Six Moon Designs Starlite
Designed for the long distance ultralight hiker, the Starlite has many features that make it feel perfect whether you're a long distance hiker or weekender looking to lighten your load.
The unique suspension system of this incredibly light 25 ounce frameless pack, allows you to comfortably carry loads up to 35 pounds. Should you wish to carry additional weight or prefer the added rigidity of an internal frame, simply slip in the two (optional) 24" stays to create an internal frame pack.
The new Starlite model better incorporates the pad pocket into the body of the pack, while still maintaining rear access to your pad. This change brings the pack side pockets closer to your back for easier access. And it allows the Starlite to support for a wider range of torso sizes.
The Starlite has a variety of styles and sizes of hip belts available, including the option of pockets.
1) Multiple Hip Belt Support
2) Multiple Shoulder Strap Lengths
3) Optional Stays

Granite Gear Nimbus Ozone 3800 Backpack
Backpacker magazine said, "What the
Ozone has is a no-exaggeration 3,800 cubic-inch capacity, an expanable
top sleeve that can stack halfway to the moon, and enough reinforcement
on wear-prone points that it won't get trashed from real-world use.
Elasticized nylon wand and shove-it pockets offer functional, simple
ways to lash odds and ends on the outside, and effective compression
straps keep every load stable." This full suspension, 3800 cubic inch
pack weighs less than 3 lbs and allows you to carry 40-pound loads in
amazing comfort, thanks to our 3D molded composite Tempex®
and our ergonomically designed harness system. The pack is fully
hydration compatible with an internal sleeve and port. Are you the
