    During an elk trip i had a pack that had a removable fanny pack. I found it quite aggravating to always be shuffling stuff from the main pack to a fanny pack. There is a certain amount of gear I never leave camp without, and it was almost impossible to fit in the fanny pack. Not to mention the inability to take a load of meat out right away. Just my 2 cents, if it is even worth that

    I made the mistake once of taking a small day pack out for a day hunt from camp, found myself over a dead deer 3 miles from camp. Took three trips instead of two and from that day on I always carry my big pack cinched down. Not a huge problem but I wasn't a happy camper standing over that deer realizing the extra work I had in store just because I chose the small bag. A day hunt doesn't always mean a short distance hunt.

    Compressibility in big packs is a valuable feature that most pack companies seem to be putting a lot of emphasis on.

    These are identical Ultra 6000s, stuffed and compressed.

    Backcountry pack question: What do you do for a day pack?

    I recently purchase do a kuiu icon 7200 and with just essentials it compresses really small. Big improvement over my eberlestock lo drag. Now I can
    haul meat back if need be with a way more sturdy and comfortable pack.

    I use SG Approach with Cabelas dry bags for the trip in. This might be a little heavier than the Approach plus Solo but its nice to have multiple bags when in camp. I keep food in one bag that can be hung in a tree away from camp if need be, one bag for clothes and one for camp essentials. Day use is the Approach.

    I purchased the Kuiu Ultra 6000 this spring. Haven't had it on the mountain, just a few hikes around home, but looking forward to putting it to use soon on a scouting trip. Im very impressed with how well it compresses down for day mode.

    How does the Kuiu ultra 6000 work as a meat hauler? I love the idea of using it as a day back but then being able to pack some meat out. Does the bag come of the frame for hauling larger quarters of deer or does it fit right in the bag?
