Sorry if this was brought up..in fact, I believe someone asked..but was wondering if the KU 5200 or other KU packs might eventually have slot pockets as in the Zulu ZXR genre?
Thanks!

You're right, wolverine, I think someone brought this up earlier. To paraphrase my response, adding more "stuff" to the ultralight's core pack body violates their basic premise--being an ultralight. And there are many very lightweight add-ons if one wishes to enhance the core pack goodness.

Patrick,
Good copy. That helps me a lot to work on add ons that are a necessity while keeping the focus on weight. I appreciate it!

I asked if there might be very short slot/wand pockets to hold ice axes/trekking poles.

Patrick said there may be something that would fit on the bits for water bottle
