I am debating on getting either the Argon 70 or the Aether 70. I like the way the Argon is set up much better than the Aether having tried on both at a local retail store. I also like the color scheme better in the Argon. The key factor in not pulling the trigger on the Argon so far has been the fact that it is rougly a full pound heavier than the Aether. Up until this point I have been very carefull of every ounce that I put in my Atmos 65 for long hikes on the AT. After alot of research I have found several websites with varying weights on both packs. The most recent one put the Aether at 5Lbs and the Argon at 5Lbs 8ozs. This seems like an easier pill to swallow if it turns out to be the case. Can anyone confirm or deny these weights? Thanks in advance.
