I use and abuse a kifaru duplex frame with emr2 bag. It may a little more than an ultralight but it’s so comfortable I hardly know it’s on my back. I can cinch down small loads when scouting or pack out bulky 100 lb loads.

I wouldn’t worry about the weight of a pack! I can pretty much guarantee my body will be a lot sorer and tired at the end of a long day with a 40 lb load in an uncomfortable load in a 4 lb pack that is only designed for 30 lb loads than a 60 lb load with my kifaru!!!

Give the Vapor series from Eberlestock a serious look. I apologize for not catching this earlier, but Brandon and I got to test this series of pack this year. With the tall Mainframe it worked well.

Just ordered the F1 with the 2500 vapor. I really wanted the batwings with my single day lightweight style but settled for the 2500. Hopefully ill like it

I think you will, let me know if you have any questions. You won't regret it if you add the Batwings or even their load carriage system for an all around use pack either. It's like legos, get what you want as you experiment.

I just hope it’s comfortable. I used the badlands 2200 last year and it hurt my back even without meat in it
