Jim M,

Look at Mtn Laurel Designs. Harness fits me like a dream. For the first time, I had mine well over the rated weight last week, and it still carried very well. I think it's rated for about 25 lbs and I had 35. Mine is custom and I think Ron Bell (mtn laurel) can probably make whatever you need in the one to one and a half pound range at a very reasonable price. Mine weighs just less than a pound and is about 40 litres. It's a slightly reduced version of a pack that I think is about 50.

best, jcp
