    @Puck1, Thank you so much for the helpful reply. I'm in the same situation as you, so I have been looking for that elusive blend of light yet supportive pack. 🙂 I think I will give the Trailblazer a try. 🙏

    Wow, the Durston Kakwa does look good for an ultralight pack. Thanks for sharing that! I'd also love to hear more about your Aarn packs, @BlackRocker57 and @Joynz, and any other Aarn users out there. Which model do you use? What do you think of it?

    Wanted to arrive at SJPDP via Biarritz..... confused
