Man Packing vs Lady packing

In true stereotypical fashion I took my 62 Altra on a 1-night camping trip (hey I NEED that bottle of wine and my mega memory foam sleeping pad) and Justin here was able to cram all his crap in this Altra 35.

He must be some kind of wizard or something. I could never fit everything I need in a 35L pack - that's crazy town!

Best Answer

I wouldn't guess that this is fully packed, but you're really the only one who can control the weight of the thing when fully packed, so I cannot assist on that note. However, I did find some measurements off Zappos for the size dimensions; when fully packed, I would guess you could maybe add an inch or two to these due to pack/fabric stretch? No matter, I hope this is essentially what you are looking for--
