Constance D.wrote a question about Gregory J 53 Backpack - Women's - 3112-3356cu in on November 19, 2014
What's the difference between the J53 and the Cairn 48/58? The former is cheaper and much lighter (the latter almost a pound heavier!) - what gives? It looks like the Cairn has a more water-resistant top lid and perhaps more durable (420D vs 210D) fabrics.
Are they meant for different types of backpackers/travelers?
