The new addition to the Gossamer Gear® ultralight backpack line for 2009 is now available for pre-order. The Gorilla™ Ultralight Backpack, a bullet-proof version of the recently redesigned Miniposa™, is the perfect pack for those "transitional" ultralight backpackers. It's also a good choice for those folks who don't want to have to stay on the trail or take extra care of their gear. Heading out for a day on the crags? This little baby won't even blink at being tossed around on granite and will hold your ropes and racks with no problem at all. This little jewel might be going in the opposite direction of "lighter weight" gear, but at only one ounce heavier than the Mariposa™ Plus, you won't even notice it.

Update: See updated product.
