Love this pack for 3 day trips

Awesome pack. I also have a MW, which I like for longer trips. This pack is perfect for a 3 or so day trip. I use it without the guide lid, but with the guide lid this thing could easily be a 5 day pack. I bought some web dominator clips to keep all the webbing together because if you don't keep the webbing under control, this thing becomes pretty loud an looks like a pack of streamers is tailing you. However, that's easy to manage. I have packs I don't like and packs I like. I really like this pack.

Great pack! Really like the front zipper, it makes it a lot easier to get to stuff quickly. I'm a minimalist when it comes to the amount of gear I carry so I have plenty of space for seven days worth of gear and food plus an extra set of clothes and I can strap my 20 degree sleeping bag and butt pad below the pack onto the frame since I use a 26 inch frame. Plus it collapses down to pretty much nothing for an awesome day pack. It seems like there's a lot of straps to manage but the Velcro does a great job of keeping it managed. and it's really not that hard to manipulate them for using the meat shelf once you get used to it.
The woodsman is a great pack.

I got the woodsman to use as my main hunting pack. I ran an Apollo this season and wanted a little more room and the woodsman has that and the meat shelf to boot. It is perfect for me.
