Re[2]: [at-l] Kelty Gale backpack



     Jansport Tahoma, 2800ci, 2.25 pounds. Also good for ultralight. (Which 
     is to say, too, that it ain't gonna carry what your Tioga did, and 
     it's not going to feel as good above 30lbs.)

I have the Kelty Brisbane. It's an internal that expands to 3,000ci. It 
weighs around 2.5. Works great for me for ultralight hiking.
