12Ls bigger to start with over the 26L Warthog. Probably more realistic for most of us in North America. Same basic volume that I have been using for a long time most everywhere here, Canada and in the Alps. It is an aquired taste/size. All the same features as the original.
Same 18" back length and 3" spread at the top of the should straps. Weight is 910g or 2# even. Weight listed on the Blue Ice web site is 890g. But stripped of straps and the removable waist belt it would be lighter than the 780g. Material is 500 x *50 denier Cordura. And a nice mellow red in color. YKK zippers and a double fabric bottom.
Nice, simple and useful alpine pack. I really like it.
