The Big Outside

Although not the lightest model in this category of 50-liter sacks, the Thunder 50 is a lightweight, well-built, smart, all-around pack for backpackers who prioritize low weight and design efficiency, ideal for everyone from serious distance hikers to weekenders and climbers.

Ultralight and Comfortable

This pack for me is a work in progress: Hopefully the spreadsheet geeks will let the designers loose and create the ultimate 70 liter pack.
