[pct-l] Zpacks

I used Zpacks last two summers, and love them!   My son did several 
weeks of the PCT starting from Manning Park this June using my ZPack 
from last summer, with no complaints.

Cuben Fiber is not as durable as nylon.  If you drag the pack across 
granite, it will get tiny holes or tears.  I used seam sealer to patch 
them.  My son used duct tape, I think.  Once I realized how to be 
careful, my second Zpack has no holes after several outings.

For your 9 day hike, it would be well worth it in light weight.
