    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.
