I had a good conversation with Mark today and we talked a little about some of the updates, not particularly about the taller frame. He just briefly mentioned a taller frame as one of the new options. However, he did say that the frame will be a few ounces lighter ( I think he said 6-8) as well as some other small updates. I don't want to misspeak and dish out inaccurate info though. Sounds like they'll be rolling out early June. He's a cool guy and it was good to talk with him about packs, gear, and not just changing stuff just for the sake of changing stuff. It'll be interesting to see what they do.
