Been looking for something simmilar:

-Get a cottage maker to make you something in camo xpac from rbtr.

-ULA custom multicam pack

-Kuiu Venture (far from 17 oz, but the additional storage means less stuff sacks and pouches so the weight isn’t terrible). You can also loose the hip belt to shave some more weight, or just start cutting and probably loose a few additional ounces

Those are about the only options I know of unfortunately. As far as hitting your weight goal, I think cottage is your only option.
Thank you for the ULA lead! Looks like around 2 pounds(?) and no more worrying about my down gear getting wet, and comes in camo.

I’m not sure if the multicam packs are water resistant. I know my ula isn’t

I have a Kelty Cloud 6400 from the 90s. It if full Dyneema and weighs 2lbs with change. I asked Kelty how much it would cost to re-introduce the Cloud it would cost north of 2500 dollars.
Sold a decades old kelty cloud on Craigslist last year for 150 bucks. I guess I shoulda checked the pricing prior. I was wondering why she was so damn happy about that old pack. 😅

Can you post some photos of your Kuiu/SG hybrid setup. I am very curious to see the exact connection points. Does the load shelf still work with this setup?

If im day hunting, im guessing my total pack weight is around 20+ pounds with water, gamebags, knife, binos, pistolla and snacks. And whatever else i may have aboard. Maybe even 30 pounds. Does a 2 pound weight penalty because i use the best pack available make a diffefence? Absolutely not.

When i pack in for lets say a 10 day hunt. Im going in over 60. Does that 2 pounds make a difference? Not hardly. The way my pack carries weight, i cant even tell that extra 2 pounds is there.

Load shelf works fine, you just have to switch out the sidelock clips on the stone glacier frame with smaller buckles. 3/4” sidelocks instead of 1”, the webbing still threads fine through it just a little stiffer. I got all the extra sidekicks from Kuiu somehow or another with a pack or something.
