I am looking into getting one myself and I just read a review on another forum. The guy took a bunch of pictures and documented his 7 day back country hunt and said at any given time he was packing 30-80 pounds very comfortably. Cant find now which forum it was on I just googled reviews on the horn hunter full curl. I will be my next pack as I am planning a back country hunt myself and need something like this my only thought is I am a small guy(5'9" 140lbs.) I hope the frame fits me comfortably. Or wish I had the money to get a mystery ranch that is built to ur specific size.
