REI used to show it on their website, now they dont. I just looked at it a couple weeks ago. I know the Superior One is over 4lbs. I just tried weighing mine but the scale was not cooperating.

Edit: Boundary Waters catalog has Superior One listed at 4lbs 3oz. And the Quetico 5000 at 3lbs 12oz.

I weighed my Quetico pack at 3lb 5oz. Not using precision scales here but I trust that’s in the ballpark.

REI lists the Quetico 5000 as 3lb 6oz (under tech specs for the product).

Is it the Quetico that comes with the harness size options for small and regular torso? I dont think the Superior One does, but maybe that is where the difference in weight is coming from versus what BWC is showing?

The GG website shows the Quetico as only having a “regular” size torso option. The REI specs do not mention torso size, which I guess would make sense if the manufacturer doesn’t offer any torso size options.

My Superior One weighs 4.2lbs, but it's bought circa 2010.

This scan was sent to me from Granite Gear when I was trying to identify two of their packs. The weights aren't shown, and not exactly sure what the catalog date is, but maybe some of the size-issues will be helpful?
