Great deal on an ultralight backpack from Granite Gear

Contemplative Pilgrim
Time of past OR future Camino
(2014)- Camino Frances
(2023)-Madrid,San Salvador
I ran across this 48 hour deal on an ultralight backpack. 35 pounds of capacity and weighs 2 1/2 pounds, $99.00.

 
Ideal sleeping bag liner whether we want to add a thermal plus to our bag, or if we want to use it alone to sleep in shelters or hostels. Thanks to its mummy shape, it adapts perfectly to our body.

€46,-
I like mine a lot - but be careful not to overload it for a Camino. I use a 60L for wilderness hikes - I use a much smaller pack for the Camino. After 2 Caminos with 30L pack - I will use a 24L pack for my next Camino (now that my gear list has been refined)
 
While 99$ might be a bargain and the pack itself might be good (honestly, i have no idea)... 60L and 2,5lbs are far from being ultralight in regards of Camino...
But if someone is looking for a "one-for-all" pack for the camino and afterwards the world tour... well, who knows.

That is not ultra-light; it’s not even light, and it’s way over size for a Camino. Otherwise it reads like a nice pack for an unsupported multi-day hike
 
It’s a very good pack. I have used mine a lot. I wouldn’t take it on my Camino though because I hate a lot of extra room in my pack. Just doesn’t feel right

Depends on what you comparing it too. Compared the the heavier 5-6lb 60L packs designed for backcountry hiking (before the current ultralight packs became more the norm) - it is certainly lightweight. For the Camino - you can certainly go lighter.
 
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.
