while certainly not designed with overnighters in mind, I wanted to see how the Tara would fare in that task

I used a pretty light/low volume kit and added a 5 liter dry bag attached to the front of the pack courtesy of the two lashing straps. The dry bag contained a light Apex quilt and light Apex puffy. I used the bottom lashing pointfor a short Neoair pad. At the bottom of my pack went a eVENT bivy- these components made up my sleep/shelter system. I had a small dry bag that contained a few items of clothing- sleep socks, light fleece mitts and a fleece balaclava. My cook setup was a 600 ml to pot w/ lid, small wood burning stove and plastic spoon. Food for a day and a half with a bear hang bag.
Water was a 20 ounce Gatorade bottle- which by the way fits the two shock cords on the shoulder straps like it was made for it- the shock cords fit perfectly into the grooves of the bottle and made water access easy and secure. A Steripen Opti for purification.

The kit bag carried essentials like fire, first aid, headlamp, map/compass, etc

Total pack weight was 11 lbs (and a little over 2 in the kit bag) and carried great. The low profile of the pack let me get through and around blowdown with ease.

I also took my Tenkara setup which also went under the lashing straps.
