Base is 11.8 now
With the pack change and a few gear tweaks, i could be right at 10 lbs
Some say base should be lower to consider a frameless pack
I am a section hiker, have made it to woods hole, va.
A concern is, since i can only get out there 1-2 times per year, i do big sections (80-100 miles). So
i need food for 5-6 days sometimes.
I know re-supply is frequent on the AT, but i would rather be hiking with the minimal time
i am out there.
Any advise,experience with the nero, or hiking with/changing to frameless would be appreciated....
