A pack weighing only 600 gms that has a 50-litre capacity . . . there has to be some drawback surely.
How comfortable would a Jam 2 be with about 7kg of gear in it?
Mrs stove uses the classic Jam and loves it. With 7kg it is barely noticeable. Above 10kg it is noticeable but not uncomfortable, and at 14kg it is quite uncomfortable but usable.
It does need packed sensibly, but thats a trusim of most light & ultralight sacs.
I use the golite gust which is also excellent. I'm a big fan of golite packs, well designed, well made, and very durable for ultralight packs.
I notice that Blacks are selling Golite on their website now, but I've never seen anything instore - is it internet only or has anyone seen a Blacks with Golite on display.
I know how you feel Jamie, in the whole of London there seems not to be a shop that actually stocks Golite packs.
Cheers for that Dash. I went there a few weeks ago and same story. I just wonder if any Blacks store in the country has ever had any in store ever?
Anyone know the nearest store to London Village where they do actually have some in stock? Keswick?
I find frameless packs work much better with closed cell mats as back support. I know the 'collapsing' of which you speak, Parky, but found this no longer happened when I switched from a Thermarest to a Ridgerest.
The Outdoor warehouse have a bit of a GoLite sale on now, the original Jam is £30, Jam2 is £63. Loads of other stuff there too.
I`ve got a Jam 1 and found it very comfortable so far, not had much weight in it, but it does carry light loads very well, I stuffed a foam sitmat and an orange survival bag inthe hydreation pocket to stiffen the back up. I`ve packed it with overnight gear and it feels very good.
