Yeah, it weighs only 14 pounds empty leaving you plenty for your stuff. The other thing is, it doesn't matter if it gets wet or pounded in the back of the truck on the way to camp.
I also learned that while I didn't overpack I still could have left 2 or 3 pounds of clothes at home. A couple extra t-shirts, couple extra pairs of underwear and socks, some snacks that I never touched. Next trip it will even out.
