The "Tarryall" is a perfect choice between a Small and Medium sized bag that can do it all. Perfect for airline travel and then be able to do up to a 3 day hike and carry everything needed. Quality craftsmanship and materials. Very lightweight yet durable. Extra pockets are added easily and add a fair amount of storage capacity. The additional organizer pockets install easily and are highly functional. Can be used as a low profile tactical bag or for civilian travel without standing out. The name says it all to those in the know! I love this bag!

Best all around hardcore daypack that'll work as an airline carry on. Solid build, will carry a load. Love the pockets inside and out. Side pockets way more useful than I thought they would be, either for water bottles or tripod/scope. Love this pack
From Evin Gary Hodge of Portland, Oregon on 1/13/2017.
Pack works well. The retention straps for the water bottle pockets are hard to use and don't retain bottles or platys as well as I would like. I am modifying mine to be adjustable.
Tarryall for EDC, travel and Dayhunting
From Matt McNabb of Borger, Texas on 1/9/2017.
I purchased this pack to replace an x-ray that I had previously. I went with the ranger green and carbon arrow stays...love the color and the comfort of the stays is great, normally I am running a normal back stay on my duplex frame. I was looking for a larger pack and for some more built in features to avoid the tactical look. This pack has totally delivered on all fronts. My primary use for this pack is to use as an EDC to and from work, I like to carry a lot of stuff and food everyday to the desk and this pack works great. I also keep it loaded up with some general day hiking things for running out to the lease during lunch and the pack works great there as well. I haven't had a chance to use it on a airplane trip yet but I have one coming up and I am planning on using this as a carry-on bag for 5 days of travel. Another thing to note I really like the external sleeve it is the perfect size to slip a 15" laptop into for easy access while going through security at the airport. Overall this is one of the most versatile packs I ever used and I look forward to using it for a long time.

I used this pack hunting here in Montana the last half of our season and I can only say I sure wish I had it for the first half. What a great pack. Carried about 30 lbs. and it was as if I didn't have a pack on. Could not be happier with the quality and comfort of this pack.
From S. Bender of Los Alamos, New Mexico on 11/1/2016.
Purchased in multi-cam, very subdued in the woods. The integral storage pockets and sleeves provide great organization with minimal weight compared to add-on pockets. After 10-days of hunting and an additional 2-days of hiking there are 3-items I would consider improving: 1)the shoulder straps have a tendency to twist when mounting the pack and the pads tend to get tucked under the strap around the lift straps instead of laying flat, 2)on the shoulder straps there is a captured, metal 3-bar slider below the sternum strap, I am not sure of its intended purpose but it wreaks havoc on a compass mounted in this area, this is where I have normally carried a quick reference compass, 3) the sleeve between the main pack and the large back pocket needs a cover flap, it wouldn't need a positive closure, just a flap that could be tucked inside if desired - the purpose would be to minimize debris accumulation. Debris collects in the sleeve virtually every time you go under branches or move through tall brush. Although I did not travel in snow, it would clearly collect in the sleeve as well. A tuckable flap could be an easy, light weight fix.For my purposes, the panel access is very convenient. The design increases speed of gear retrieval and minimizes exposing the contents to wet or dirty conditions and lowers the chances of losing items during removal and repacking.Overall, very satisfied but I did not have the opportunity to pack a "heavy" meat load.
The Tarryall is awesome
From George Graham of Billings, Montana on 10/24/2016.
I was looking for a larger day pack to replace my Badlands pack and once I put some gear in this pack and put it on I was sold. Haven't used it hunting yet and I am excited to get out there and hunt with this pack. The customer service was exceptional too. Only about two weeks to get my pack. Thanks Kifaru
From Tim of Arvada, Colorado on 10/17/2016.
This pack does all I can ask of it. Ease of access, great functionality. The range of adjustments allows for the perfect custom fit. Bought this as a replacement for a G1 Spike camp. This is my main go to pack for anything outdoors short of needing the capacity of a frame pack.
From Ben of Kearney, Nebraska on 10/7/2016.
Great Pack - Well thought out and designed. Purchased as a day hunting pack between the Zippy and the EMR 2 with frame. Will be doing most of the work unless heavy or large loads. Really like this guy.
From Zekker of Newtown, Connecticut on 9/3/2016.
Pack fits nice and is very well made.Used it on some light day hikes with the kids - test will be during deer season to see how she feels with 40 lbs. of meat in the pack. I am sure it will be fine - love the feel and fit.Thanks Great customer service
From Harry Buckholts of Fulton, Texas on 8/18/2016.
I bought this pack to be my pack, a do it all pack, from deer hunting and all day trips to 2 to 3 day over night camping trips. I have a good 2000+ cu. in. pack but its really stuffed and overloaded as far as room is concerned for longer overnight trips. I really appreciate the two front pockets and the two water bottle pockets. The slit pocket creates a space for a sit pad, tent poles or a breakdown fishing rod while the larger pocket would actually hold my summer weight sleeping bag, or easily handle a jacket as the weather warmed up. I've only had about 30 lbs. in the Tarryall, so I've come nowhere near testing it's capacity, but it was perfectly comfortable at the 30 lb. mark. Kifaru manufactured what I wanted, I bought one and have no regrets.

Another Kifaru Success
From Anonymous of Boise, Idaho on 8/8/2016.
I was looking for a pack that would make it through airport sizing requirements, yet provide enough room to pack for a several day trip. This pack does both, while maintaining the quality we have all come to expect from Kifaru.
8/6/2016 – Can you attach a roll top pod to this pack?
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Hi Jonathan,A pod can be attached to the bottom of the Tarryall pack.
6/23/2016 – Can a outdoorsmans medium tripod fit in one of the side pockets?
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Hi Sean,Yes, you can place your tripod in the water bottle pocket and secure it with the side compression strap.
6/4/2016 – Do the nalgene side pockets bellow out or take up internal space when used?What kind of belt comes with it, and is there . . .
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Hi Todd,The water bottle pockets on the sides of the pack do not take up internal space when used. The Tarryall uses a padded Omni EDC belt Yes, you can attach belt pouches to the belt.
5/28/2016 – Can accessories like the small belt pouch or Kifaru water bottle belt pouch fit on the belt?
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Hi Aaron,Yes, the belt of the Tarryall allows the addition of accessories like a small belt pouch or water bottle pocket.
5/27/2016 – Hello,Firstly i love the look of the new pack! Just what i've been looking for and it looks ideal for my photography . . .
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Hi Matt,The composite stays are curved and are 1/2lb heavier than the arrow stays. Since the composite stays are curved they will be more comfortable than the arrows. Yes, you can dock a pod to the bottom of the pack.
5/15/2016 – What's the average number of days you can pack in per cubic inches?
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Hi Jonathan,It is really dependent on how compressible and ultralight your gear set up will be, and how much food and water a person takes. Generally, a bag of the Tarryall's size would allow 2-3 days of gear. Our midsized bags (4800ci-5200ci) work well for trips up to 5 days. For hunts/trips exceeding 5 days, we recommend one of our larger packs in the 7000ci+ range.
