    Dana Design Terraplane, rare Overkill version, Bozeman made, all black, like new. 5800 cubic inches, pack, belt and shoulder straps are all size M. I purchased this pack new and have only used it to store stuff over the years, it's never been on the trail. It still has the inspection tag attached. This is the 1000D full cordura version (Overkill) of the Terraplane which makes it nearly indestructible. If you need to carry a huge amount of weight this is the ultimate pack.

    For those of you who are unfamiliar with this pack, Outside Magazine said "The Terraplane is the pack of choice when your planned route requires you to tape several topo maps end to end. It's unsurpassed at making a normal backpacking load feel pleasant and an expedition-size load feel almost pleasant. The secret is in the frame, a multitasked trusswork comprising a central aluminum stay, a large HDPE framesheet, and twin carbon-fiber wands that tie the bulk of the load to the optimum balance point at the sides of the hipbelt. And that well-padded, contoured hipbelt is the best in the business at cupping your hips rather than squeezing them."

    $300 OBO, paypal only.

    Dana Design Big Sky, 2200 cubic inches, size M., bronze/green/black. I have used this pack on perhaps 15 hikes, it's in great shape with no problems. You can read a little about it in a comparison at

    $150 OBO, paypal only.

    Mountainsmith Mountainlight 3500, green/black, 3500 cubic inches, 3.8lbs. I can't find any sizing info, it is adjustable and doing some research it appears this model came in one size to fit 16"-24" inch torsos. This is another pack that has only been used to store gear and never hit the trail. It was the winner of a Backpacker magazine lightweight pack comparison in 2000.

    $125 OBO paypal only

    All prices include shipping and paypal fees to CONUS. I prefer to keep sales in the US, but I'll consider other locations on a case by case basis.

    I will take some pictures tomorrow and add them to the post.

    Thanks for looking,
