[pct-l] Brawny's 9 Ounce Silnylon Backpack

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
[ Picked text/plain from multipart/alternative ]
Brawny made and used an 8 ounce silnylon backpack on her recent thru-hike o=
f the AT.  She later added a couple of mesh pockets that brought the total =
weight (with hip belt) up to 9 ounces.

This pack made the entire length of the AT, and it is still in usable condi=
tion.  She has updated her page concerning other changes she made on this p=
ack, and what she learned about ultralight packs while she was hiking.  Two=
 photos of the pack are also shown.

The page can be accessed here.  Look for "Brawny's 9 Ounce Silnylon Pack" a=
