Mariposa Ultralight Backpack

Mariposa Ultralight Backpack

Product Review (submitted on April 19, 2013):
I owned a Mariposa Plus for many years and really loved it. Then the new 2012 Mariposa came out with some really desirable new features, especially the top zip pocket and the belt with integral zip compartments. In practice, I keep my total pack weight between 20 and 25 lbs and the extra volume of this pack is not to bring more - just be able to stow it more comfortably without resorting to a lot of stuff bags and there added weight! I stash my Neoair sleeping pad in the pad holder - makes for a very comfy and plush ride. Thank you Gossamer Gear for your continued innovations and value. Lightweight backpacking is letting me enjoy the hobby in my late 50s - and soon the 60s!
