Feature list from Marmot:
In April 1971, University of California Santa Cruz students Eric Reynolds and Dave Huntley were in Alaska on the Juneau Icefields on a school project in Glaciology. It was here on the glacier, amongst these students, that the idea of a Marmot club began. To become a Marmot, you had to climb a glaciated peak with another Marmot. One of the rules of the club was that everyone was president. Most of the other rules dealt with the collegiate fascination with bodily functions.
Eric and Dave went on to found Marmot Mountain Works in 1974, and through the years the company made lots of innovations in down jackets, sleeping bags, Gore-Tex apparel, and beyond. Their modest enterprise is now one of the largest and most respected outdoor gear companies in the world, distributed in over 60 countries, and it is still all about the highest-quality, innovative performance products.

This pack it odly shaped and very big volume for an UL pack. i loaded it and all my gear sank to the bottom and the foam pad also folded up and became useless. this pack it a large volume ultra lightweight pack and has to support/form so if that is what you want go ahead but for me it was awful. i used this once and returned it to where i bought it on the way home.
