Sorry if this has been discussed already. Mountain Hardware has some of the new stuff designed by Ueli Steck on the web now. Some of it looks great, but I am having a hard time seeing the difference between the Summit Rocket 30 http://www.mountainhardwear.com/...4532,default,pd.html and the Scrambler ULT 30 http://www.mountainhardwear.com/...4530,default,pd.html other than one is cheaper and lighter. I want one of these but would like to see them in person first.

Eric

Any thoughts on this stuff

The SummitRocket 30 has more features, so it costs and weighs more. Zipper entry, daisies and ice axe cradles, grab loops for hauling, it all means extra weight, cost, and labour. Then, to try to keep the weight down, (and/or to add durability,) they strategically placed dyneema panels.

It looks like a great pack! I can't wait to check it out.
