    Lightweight, accurate jetpack?

    Hey guys,

    Who makes the most lightweight, accurate jetpack these days???

    I have an old, heavy beast that I'm thinking about replacing. I've never actually weighed it on a scale, but it's a beast.

    Thoughts? Opinions?

    manofwarstudios has a pack that is about 6 pounds....mlc has a nice, light pack as well...bobbyfettuk has also come out with some nice packs, but not sure of the weight...and bobamaker has a nice pack as well...shipping is expensive, however, from the UK...

    The packs are probably all close enough in weight...I'd be more concerned with your harness system that goes with it. Not plugging but FettDad's harness works well enough that I can't feel much of a difference when the pack is on or off.

    I agree that all the packs I've seen available recently looks great. I was just curious on the weight.

    The harness has always been my nemesis. I've been eyeing FettDad's system, but it doesn't look comfortable for a female if you catch my drift. =)

    I personally have a fettdad harness with a bobby fett UK pack. Can barely tell im wearing it. I'd say the pack is 5 or 6lbs but im sure BFUK will chime in with a more accurate weight.

    yep. I highly recommend that Seeker harness. With it on, you can't hardly feel like your wearing a jetpack. it's nice and snug.
