[at-l] Kelty Gale backpack

I've been surfing the net for a few minutes and ran across the Kelty
website. I scanned across their listing of backpacks in an effort to
identify backpacks which would do the job, but be a savings in weight. I
saw the Kelty "Gale" listed as a pack which weighs 2 lbs. 10oz. and has a
capacity of 3500 c.i. It is listed as costing $90. Is there something
wrong or unmentioned about this pack? It seems remarkably light for the
capacity listed. Most of Kelty's other packs are in the 5-6 lb. range.
Tell me what you know about this. I'm looking for a way to lighten my pack
weight down from my Kelty Tioga, which weighs in at 5 lbs. 11oz. if the pack
cover is included (according to my spring loaded scales).
