    Try http://www.andyhowell.info/Colin-Ibbotson/skins.html go on to the 'Project Skins PDF File' once you are there.
    The article on here is 2 years old, he will have made adjustments and other improvements but it gives you an impression of where he is trying to take backpacks. I think the product range is going on the market in sep/oct and there is another site with a countdown clock, but cant find it.

    Not totally revolutionary, I bought a Golite Jam and a Gust (40 and 60 litres respectively) made of Dyneema 5 years ago that both weighed under 600 grams. The recent Golite Ion, Dyneema, 20l, is 200 odd grams.
