When's Christmas?

Here is a pack that I'd love to get my hands on. The Marmot Himalyan 80 fits perfectly into my idea of what a pack should be. It's advertised as a square 3 lbs. 9 oz. and 4900 cubic inches. So you'd be carrying less than a pound of dead weight for every 1,000 cubes inside. It meets the golden 1:1 ratio of weight to volume.

This is no ultralight weenie either. The Kevlar/Nylon fabric should be durable enough to be dragged over rock and through brambles. Plus, with all of the removable pockets, one could easily leave a lot of weight at home. It seems like a great load carrier for those that need some extra capacity for the wintertime or anytime.

I've found no reviews online about this pack. If you have one, please leave a comment!
