Reconing pack
Ultralite composite frame

Anyone running this?

Any disadvantages to the ultralight frame VS the regular hunter frame?

Total weight is about 6 pounds which has me slightly concerned. Thats a heavy starting weight.
No experience with the ultralight frame, but have owned 24" and 26" duplex. From what I've heard, the newer frames are even more comfortable, but I struggle to see how that could be possible. North of 6 lbs including a lid, well, once you put it on, empty, you won't notice it. It'll feel 20 lbs lighter when you load it up.. I freak out about pack weight when I pick them up, then, I get everything cinched, and have that moment when I feel lighter than I expected. The suffering begins when the legs & lungs have to move, but my shoulders, hips, and back feel fine. Your mileage will vary...
