Ron Bell from MLD posted these images to his group on facebook showcasing his next pack, codenamed the Newt.
Details straight from facebook.
"Finished a 'close to ready' prototype of the new smaller prophet pack- code named Newt. 10 oz stripped but plenty tough in Dyneema X and the and the same mesh, etc as the Prophet/Exodus/Ark packs. The design is very traditional but uses the best quality materials and a few really nice pieces of hardware no one else is using on UL packs. This one is about 15% too big...SO -weight may come down a bit. Strippable 3/4" waist belt- lots of spectra cord loops to attach the removable and ultra cool mini bungee clips. We Should have it up on the site in about a week or two. Simpler design makes it more efficient to make so the piece will be lower than the Prophet- around $130. "
