This is a great looking pack. I had never heard of the brand until I saw this ad. I actually enquired today to see how much it would cost to send out a hip belt, only to discover that the hip belt is not removable! Are you selling to move back to something more traditional or for lack of use? ... I'm in that dilemma at the moment where I'm deciding whether to go the mainstream standard pack - Atmos/Aether, Futura, Zulu, or something more in-between - Sierra Designs Flex Capacitor or the UL route such as this one.... I was thinking I'd take the plunge on this just to see how it went, if I could have got the right size hip belt. In reality, my kit is probably still to heave for a specialised UL pack.

Good luck with the sale. Awesome pack and I'd be all over it if right size, right gear!

FNM, I have the older KS50 without the frame set, X Pac etc. and it has been a great pack. I bought it from Laurent ~4 years ago and it changed my thoughts on hiking as it gave me a sense of freedom in its simplicity.

In these times its nice to have a dream!

Good to know it also has durability.. I’m reluctant to go UL items sometimes when durability becomes questionable. For environmental reasons, I try to find the balance between lightweight, quality, comfort and durability - ie, I don’t want to prioritise making life a little easier for myself with lighter gear, if the consequence is having to throw things out more often. UL and durable is the ultimate :)

I really love the pack but if I’m honest the size is not quite right for me. I have the hip belt and shoulder straps as small as they will go.
I’m still not 100% sure what I’ll get next. Sometimes I think the perfect pack doesn’t exist!
