This makes sense. I tried both they both seem fine. Right now the composites are in there but may try aluminum on a training hump. See what's more comfy and sell the others with the pack I want to sell.Get both. For how little they cost, decide what works best and sell what you don’t use.
Looking at the website I don’t think they offer aluminum stays with the duplex lite anymore.This question has been asked a thousand times and I have responded a thousand times. Aluminum all day everyday! Would you prefer to have an okay fit and save a couple of ounces? OR.... would you prefer to have a perfect fit and save those few ounces on another piece of gear?? I don't think it's a really question. You carry a hundred things in your pack. You're telling me you can't find a few ounces to save amongst all those pieces? High quality 7075 stays can be molded to your back for shear perfection! THE PERFECT FIT WITH A PACK? IT'S WHERE IT ALL STARTS!!!
