Super for Simple
From Anonymous of Portland, Oregon on 7/20/2016.
Great, simple bag. Couldn't screw this up if I wanted. Think hard about bag size before you buy. Nothing wrong with the published specs... I just didn't plan quite right for the amount of food and gear I like to take out (my fault... not Kifaru's) and will buy the argali for colder weather trips needing more clothes. But, the bag itself is awesome and easy to use. Compression straps are well placed and well made. Holds 100lbs of gravel bags wonderfully for my training rucks, with the bottom 1/3 of the bag pinched off. Love the design and build.
Love this pack
From Cody R. of Grand Junction, Colorado on 7/11/2016.
I finally broke down and treated myself to a Kifaru pack as a college graduation present to myself. I couldn't be happier. This pack is super versatile, it compresses down to basically nothing, and with added pockets I have no doubt I can do atlas 5+ nights. Customer service was amazing also, I received an email that my pack had shipped at 6:30 pm on a Thursday night, and my pack was on my doorstep Friday morning by 8:00 am. Couldn't be happier with the pack, its build quality, or the customer service. Glad I joined the Kifaru team.
Excellent for Lightweight Backpacking!
From Eric Stephenson of Crawford, Colorado on 4/24/2016.
Excellent size, shape, and functionality for lightweight backpacking. I took this pack out last weekend while leading a boy scout backpacking trip in the Gunnison Gorge Wilderness. I started with 19 lbs of my own gear (including food & water) for a two day trip, but ended up with approximately 45-50 lbs because a scout's cheap pack unraveled on the trail. The duplex frame put the weight on my hips where it belongs, and I am confident this pack will be excellent for lightweight trips, including bivy hunts for elk. I am hoping this new design (obviously a different manufacturing process) proves to be as durable as previous Kifaru designs.

Love this bag. Has more configurations than you think... Like that I can customize it how I like.
Ultra light done right
From Tony Trietch of Traverse City, Michigan on 12/7/2015.
The Markhor has 4800ci of room but only weighs in at 1 lb 12 oz! They managed to keep the weight low but the quality is still what I expected from Kifaru, top notch! I combined it with the new spotting scope pocket and am very pleased.
2/15/2016 – Does the Markor have the load shelf like the Tahr? Also, does the Markor have a snow cap like the Tahr?
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Hi Mike,The Markhor pack does not include a load shelf like the Tahr bag. You are able to create a load shelf by attaching the lower compression straps to the frame then separate the bag from the frame like the Tahr. The lower straps will act as a shelf to support your load at the bottom. The Markhor does not include tabs at the top of the bag to fold over and act as a lid but this is something you can request in the customer comment section on the checkout screen for the order. The Markhor can also have a lid added like our other packs.
