Mariposa Ultralight Backpack
- Product Review (submitted on October 6, 2013):
- My Mariposa has seen about 1000 miles over the last five years, mostly AT and western NC. It's versatility is outstanding. This backpack encourages creativity, as it is set up to customize. You can use whatever kind of padding you want for the back. I use my inflatable mattress. The exterior pockets make organization and access simple. This really makes a difference in getting in and out of camp quickly. I also remove the stays and use it for a 45 liter kayak bag, for portages and distant camps from the shore. Most importantly, the Mariposa is a great product because it invites users to innovate and think creativity about their trail systems. Tinker with it. Have fun. From 12 pounds to 25 plus 8 liters of water, this thing is an incredible value for a well-appointed UL pack that can handle week-long winter trips without resupply.
