It’s about 45 litres, cuben, closure is drawstring and roll, comfortable hip belt, cuben is old but serviceable. Shoulder straps do not have the elevator system of the modern arc haul. Beige colour. Very simple Very light cuben sac with frame. 340g. I know it’s incredible. I weighed it several times to check. Size seems medium. Fits me with 18 » torso and would fit upto 20 ». @WilliamC might comment on size as I think it was Bozena’s pack.

    £60 including postage

    This was my pack. My torso length is 19.5" and the pack worked for me (but I'm not too fussy about a bit of weight on my shoulders).
    I sold this because I was having hip pains (not just with this pack) and wanted a plusher hip belt but it's a great pack. I'm very tempted to buy it back and if it's still around in a couple of days, I may well do so.

    I've been using an Exos 38 around Kaş but lots of spiny bushes and trees don't play well with mesh. This pack would work well, I think.

    Interesting... No mesh or bungee to create a front pocket? Looks like no hip belt pockets either?

    It has attachments for bungee on the front. (Sorry for the poor photo quality.)

    Zpacks packs never come with hip belt pockets but they have attachment points for them. The hip belt pouches from Treadlitegear work well.

    Cheers @Davy , :thumbsup: it's the missing link in my spare set of gear that will enable me to finally get the Mrs/sister/brother/to a lightweight mountain top camp at last.
    I have been trying to build up a full set of cheaper gear so I can coax them into trying wild camping for the first time. I figure the lighter I can keep the gear, the more likely they are to be converted.

    Although it's so light I would be tempted to give it a go myself.

    Pack arrived thanks @Clare. :thumbsup:

    Double checked but there didn't seem to be any jelly beans in the package... :D

    Odd stuff that cuben. Fit seems good loaded up with a two night trip's worth of kit and food and a couple of litres of fluids.

    @WilliamC did you run shock cord through the loops to the pack front and can I take it the pack fabric is sort of water resistant?

    Cheers

    William will know better but I took it that the fabric is waterproof. It’s crinkly but not degraded enough to loose its waterproof-ness.

    Fabric is water proof when new and if remember correctly the seams are taped. You could try a shower test.
    You could run shock cord through the loops; that's what they are there for. I made some large stuff sacks with those clips with linelocs and used those most of the time. I also rigged up an Exped Flash pocket to use with it.

    Thanks @WilliamC. I've worked out a way to attach my Flash pocket to it. Not sure I need it for the short solo trips it will be used for. Might look at shock chord for attaching wet things on the outside.

    Mindful I don't want to add so many bits to it :D
