Has anyone considered this pack for an A.T. thru hike? I know it is on the heavy side but I figure with the weight saved from not using dry bags/pack cover plus the durability this pack has would make it a reasonable candidate. Any thoughts?

I have been on the AT many times, and rain can dump on you for extended periods. My pack was NOT weather resistant, and my rain cover leaked like a sieve. Next time I would definitely go for something weather resistant. So, yea, it's definitely worth at least looking into.
Good luck!
