    used mine this year to carry my camp a time or two, but didn't get to try any "big loads" of meat! tag soup tends to run out of the zipper seams, but it did fit well and was comfortable. It did get a little annoying squeak where the pack frame and hip belt attach after three days of serious hiking! Over all though I like it, only other negative is when you sinch everything tight all the lose web belts tend to hang all over the place with no good way to tuck them in or tie them together.

    A few micro pony tail holders will help with the straps. On the squeek, a little bowstring wax on the pivot point works like a charm. Kuiu has a youtube video about it, and it is an easy fix.

    Yeah, the most comfortable suspension I've used so far. My buddy and I are considering working out a deal where we get the Kifaru Timberline T2 this year and switching up a few times, to see which super-pack we like better.
