>>2672953>What's your baseweight?
I never did like the idea of a base weight as a general concept because it’s going to change with the seasons. You’re not taking the same gear in summer as you are in fall or spring, rain gear is all over the place, some areas require more water bottles, and so on. For a specific trip or time of year it makes sense.>>2673110
Anon, this sounds like a really unique setup. Your quilt and pad are around a combined two pounds, which means your shelter and pack are under 1lb combined. Is it a tiny DCF tarp with no mosquito net or ground sheet that doubles as a hobo bindle? Also, a cook set that’s well over a pound is kind of incongruous with everything else, but I suppose a Jetboil makes sense when everything else is so light.>>2673114
The previous models of Osprey Exos are worth looking at. If you can find one from ~2014 then it’s your best option. The 2018 doesn’t have shoulder strap pockets, they skimped on strap padding, and I think it doesn’t have hip belt pockets. Still an ok option. The latest model has the side compression straps run over the side pockets witch is monstrously retarded.
None of them compete in weight with most ultralight packs but the Exos is pretty stripped down and much lighter than something like the Atmos or Gregory Baltoro. The last eat one is listed at 2.77lbs (which is lighter when the brain is removed). The 2014 is 2.3, nearly half a pound lighter.
I’m not a huge fan of Osprey but that particular year pack is one of the best things they’ve ever done. The back ventilation (similar to that of the Focal) is a necessity where I live.
