Great pack. Huge upgrade over the pack I was using. I'd give it 5 stars if it had a zipper down the front to make accessing stuff at the bottom easier. May put one in myself.
Awesome Do-All Pack!

I waited to write a review until I had a good number of miles and experienced some heavy loads with the Argali. This pack has been great, very minimalist, but has the ability to add anything you could want or need for a day or a week long hunt. Logging about 200 miles with this pack I can say I love its simple design and ability to cinch down small. With just two pouches on the outside I was able to run this bag in daypack mode easily and left the lid at camp. The fold over feature of the snow collar made a great way to keep a bugle tube or jacket accessible and cut down on weight for day trips. At the other end of the spectrum, after hauling a few heavy loads I can say without a doubt this is a great hauler (but that might be a better indication of the frame and suspension than this particular packbag). The bag will easily hold an elk quarter (bone in) with room to spare for backstraps or your other gear. If I could make two changes it would be: 1 - Make the lid straps on the bag (the ones nearest to the frame) removable. I generally tuck these in behind the top two compression straps, but without the lid they could be left in the tent. 2 - It hasn't been an issue, but I'm always a bit nervous about having my water bladder right next to my other gear. A simple sleeve like is found in other Kifaru packs to protect it and keep it vertical would be grand.Overall, I love this pack and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a do-all solo hunter pack. Keep it up Kifaru!

I really like this pack. It is solidly built. The thing I like is the modularity. You can customize it for different hunts. I bought a few accessory pockets and have a ton of compatible pockets from my army days that I can attach. Plenty of room and options for any and all hunt styles from day hunts to two weekers.
Lots of room, not much weight
From Jim of Radisson, Wisconsin on 5/11/2016.
I've had a chance to hike with this pack for several months now. Like the title reads, pretty good bang for your buck when it comes to lots of room, minimal weight, and durability. Pack was obviously well built out of the box and has handled 100lb plus loads without any signs of wear. Compresses to nothing when you don't need the entire volume. Got mine with the guide lid, belt pouches, and spotter pocket to keep things handy and for extra volume when needed. I am confident this bag will last me a loooong time. Holding back on giving a 5 star rating since I've only had it about 5 months. Thanks Kifaru!

It's hard these days to find American made products in the hunting industry. Yeah the industry is made up of disposable income, but it's better to buy quality than quantity.... Here is my advice..... Buy once cry once! This is the third pack system I have bought in the last 2 years. I should have went ahead and spent the money the first time! This bag is really nice. It has high quality stitching. The seams are really well put together with craftsmanship. The bag has a lot of storage with a small storage pouch near built in. The outside has tons of options! With the moly webbing you can take the belt pouches and place them in a spot to see if you like it... If you don't, you can just move it around to another spot that you like. I added 3 medium belt pouches along with the spotting scope pouch. I also added the guide lid. What is also really nice are the zippers. They are great! This bag may look bare from the outside, but just look at the pics with the different options for configuration. If want a pack that is very configurable, the bag is for you!
Great Pack !!!!!!!!!!!

This pack quite frankly is a work of art. As a minimalist ruck sack the design is simple but at the same time rugged and beautiful. Everything down to each stitch is made in the good ol' USA which means I will be a Kifaru customer for life.
