[pct-l] pack advice? (new to list)

Hey everyone -- I'm pretty sure I'm about to raise a long-debated issue
here, so without going into the whole Go-lite discussion, does anyone have
any experience with the Kelty Flight?  I have a chance to pick up a 2000
model for about 170 on overstock.  The guy at REI told me a lot of Kelty's
end up getting returned due to inferior workmanship.  I've only read one
review of it on the pcthiker.com site, and that person seems to like it.

Of course, any other rec's would be appreciated (feel free to mail me off
list, if this issue has already been covered to death).  I'm planning on
doing the hike this year, and am looking for a light pack around 3000 cu.
in.  I don't know that I'll be as agile at cutting weight as the Jardines,
but I'm going to try to do what I can to go lighter.  I like having the
support of a belt, and I can't honestly say that I'll be as fastiduous about
pack weight distribution as I'd need to be to effectively use one of the
*super* light golite packs.  So, that in mind, if anyone has successful
experiences with other packs that might fit the bill, please let me know.

Thanks very much in advance,
