Six Moon Designs says:
The Minimalist was designed to tackle problems that we felt were out there: Ultralight and Durable, Enough Suspension without overdoing it, Features but not overly complex, Configurable but Simple, Large Enough for Gear but Not Overwhelming to your Suspension. While attempting to find the essence of each option and looking for the simplest and cleanest way to resolve them we created The Minimalist. We feel it offers some exciting options for long distance backpackers.
The Six Moon Design Minimalist is a versatile ultralight-style backpack that can be configured in a variety ways for long distance backpacking, lightweight backpacking, and fast and light running trips.
It can be configured as either a Frame-less or Framed pack. This is done by simply removing the flexible Delron Hoop stay. While there are many Frame-less packs on the market these days. There are none with an Adjustable Torso Length. The Minimalist allows you to adjust the torso length to adjust to both your body and conditions you're encountering. There are times, depending upon your load and trail conditions, when you may want to raise or lower your pack for optimal comfort.
The pack is constructed from High Tenacity Robic yarn which gives it great durability while preserving its light weight. The bottom is double layered to provide added protection from wear and the outer pockets are covered with Durable 4-Way Stretch material which provides excellent stretch while resisting snags and abrasion.

Unfortunately this pack is not fully waterproof. While the material is extremely water-resistant, it will eventually permeate as the seams are not taped or sealed. Either a pack liner or waterproof raincover is the ideal solution to this issue, giving a low-bulk, lightweght yet waterproof layer to protect the contents of the pack.
