I'll never know why they change things that work just fine.
My old pack has almost the perfect amount of room for the
winter hiking I do (never needed more room) and weighs right
at 3 lbs. There were things I didn't necessarily like about
it...so, hopefully the extra pound of the Z will change
those things without changing the things I like about it
(and, one of those is the 3 pounds!!)
