Thanks for the advice ill really look into the highcamp as well... Thank you
Do you think the highcamp is the superior pack to the Kuiu and stone glacier. I have no experience with any other pack besides my BL 4500.
I'm going with the Kifaru Highcamp after much deliberation , and one must consider that it's made in the USA . Thanks everyone for your input and advice.
Let us know how you like it when you get it. Did you go with the highlander camouflage?
Didn't get my order in today but I think the multicam, I keep looking at the Timberline and thinking how great it would be with a bikini frame, but ill let you know tomorrow. Thanks again for the info and advice.
No doubt on bikini frame. It was explained to me it is 95% of what a duplex timberline is. But this is where the true weight savings comes into play. I have a highcamp on order but i question my judgement of not going with a dt1 or 2. Just more organization.
I'm a small guy and the bikini can probably handle twice of what I can.
I went with the DT1 on the bikini frame. I added a couple of accessories. Now the waiting game until my pack shows up! I haven't received a ship date, but Aron did give me an ETA when I was talking with him on the phone.
I opted to go with the foliage for color. The highlander camo just wasn't worth the extra money to me.
By the time I added the pockets I wanted to the highcamp bag, I was spending more money and had no real weight savings over the DT1. Really, the only thing I would have gotten with the highcamp configured how I had it would have been more cubic inches. I thought the likelihood of a scenario where 8000ci would have been just enough and 7200ci wouldn't cut it was very low. Be that as it may, I can always add pockets or pods to my bag if really necessary.
I did go with a grab-it kit and the gen.2 hanging meat bag.
I hope my pack purchasing days are coming to an end. I said the same thing about my binocular purchasing days recently as well. #confessionsofagearqueen
