All my gear in my pack for last weekends camp was 8 pounds. You sure you want to carry that thing around?
Pretty cool pack, XXL for sure. I own an Eberlestock hunting pack that has a scabbard for a rifle or hunting bow. It's extremely well made but heavy for its size. It fills the bill for its purpose. Like you, I love purchasing things at a discount. You can't go wrong with an Eberlestock.
If you want to move out and stay. That will sure take care of that.
