This pack, made of 420/840 Fabric, weighs 4.25 lbs. With the top pocket replaced by a summit flap the pack weighs 3 lb, 14 oz. Add water bottle holsters back on and it weighs 4 lb. 2 0z. To qualify as an ultralight pack with us a pack would be under 4 lbs. with the water bottle holsters and a summit flap. This pack was made with ultralight features but because the fabric makes it heavier it falls out of the Ultralight category into Semilight.
Sarcs that weigh in the 4 to 5 lb. range we now call semilight for reference. This is a good weight range to get weight savings and toughness for serious cross country travel or tough climbing.
