    Default Osprey Volt Weight

    I bought an Osprey Volt last weekend. On the tag, it says 3lbs 9oz. I just weighed it here at home, and it weighs exactly 4 lbs. I feel like that is a huge difference, and am wondering if it's common for packs to be that far off. To me it's a huge discrepancy.

    The quoted weight (and capacity) for Osprey packs are based on the medium size of each model. If you have a large, that would explain the difference.

    Haha, forgot to post that my wife had snuck something in the pack unbeknownst to me. So the listed weight ended up being correct!
