Two options you could consider are:

Mammut Ultralight Removable Airbag 3.0 - 3.3lbs with canister

Snow pulse high mark ridge 3.0 - 5.5lbs with canister.

The snow pulse is designed for snowmobiling.

Default BCA vest

I'm sure that its not the lightest but if you wear a vest as well, then no doubt look into the BCA vest. I have ran packs and this vest and the weight never completely falls onto the shoulders the way a Backpack will. the way the waist strap is designed I hardly know I'm wearing it. until a tree try's to stab me. my buddy had the Snopulse vest and it rests on the shoulders more than my BCA did. his was an older model though. newer ones are probably better.

Agree with the post above....Have had a few different backs and vest, the BCA vest may not be the lightest, but is the most comfortable to me.
