    I apologize if this conversation has been beaten to death. In the market for a dual purpose pack for me and family (BOB & Outdoors/Camping/Hiking). Thought the Rush 72 was it until I bought one and just can't seem to get it to fit comfortably on my frame. I'm 6'4", just under 200 lbs, and...

    DAMN! Just when I thought I was ready to settle on what packs I was going to collect, I stumble upon Kelty Military Tactical's Kifaru/Mystery Ranchesque packs at about 1/2 the cost! Damn you Kelty! Damn you!

    I have this campers backpack that is pretty awesome, was bought many years ago (from my childhood, Im 33 yrs old now). But its just too big. I need something I can wear while I ride a horse or motorcycle. This one the frame goes down near or past the buttocks :xeye: and I cant sit comfortably...

    I got an internship as a Wilderness Ranger working for the Forest Service. My only problem is my ruck is a molle 2 and I don't think that is quite appropriate for the job. I'm not too familiar with civilian companies that make reasonably priced rucks for backcountry hiking. I was looking at...

    Hi, Hopefully you guys can offer some help. I'm building my systems up at the moment for different occasions (hikes, day trips, small bob etc) and I am looking to get a medium sized (30 litre/1800 cubic inch) day sack to carry them. I have certain specifications I want ticked as well as the...

    I am going to be looking for a 2 person, 3 season tent for when winter ends. Water proof is a must, and I am not trying to break the bank. Thanks for the recommendations.

    Has anyone seen Backpacker magazine - editors choice awards, April 2010 edition? Starting on page 57 there is a list of recommended pcaks. When I saw the size of the packs, I laughed out loud. These people must be carrying a lot of gear. On and off for well over 10 years, Backpacker magazine...

    Hi. I'm thinking of buying the Kelty Falcon 4000 but would like to read some reviews on it first. However, I'm not having much luck finding any info on this bag. Does anyone on this forum have any experience with it or know someone who does? I'm looking at paying around $240 for this.

    What is your survival gear, prepping fetish? Its the thing that no matter how many you have, you can find some kind of justification to buy more. I guess mine is backpacks. My current backpack list: Jansport cloth backpack Camelbak raider Maxpedition Proteus Versipack Maxpedition Falcon II...

    hey all, I am looking at upgrading my BOB / Camping pack, my deuter has been good but it is too small and lacks decent organizers. I use small to medium size packs because I dont like overpacking, So I have narrowed it down as best I can using the forums and net searches to these candidates...

    My parents have offered to buy me a new backpack for Christmas, and I wanted to know what kind of features I should look for in terms of material, pockets, etc. I'm going to be doing some long-distance hikes with it and it'll probably double as my BOB, so I want something pretty big and durable...

    I ran into a pretty cheap pack configuration that I think is pretty cool, and am considering buying. Its the Kelty Cache Hauler. It is an external frame pack... without the pack. It has a folding shelf on the bottom, with a padded back, which has a pocket for a hydration bladder, has a good...

    My current day pack is a jansport school backpack. Even though it was cheap, it is a well built pack that has served me well for about 12 years. The pack is only about 1,200 - 1,500 cubic inches. Just big enough for food, water, hammock, extra socks and shirt, poncho, poncho liner, gps...

    After paging through some online sites I have recently discovered Kelty makes military backpacks! Does anyone have any experience with these? http://www.kelty.com/kelty/products.php?type=2&cat=all

    I have narrowed my serch for a new bag. They are both Kelty but are a little differant sizes (3000CI and 3300CI) and differant designs (Top Loading vs. Front loading). I'm not a huge bag guru and to be quite honest the backpack function is one of emergency. Mostly the pack is carried back and...

    I was looking at the Cabela's hunting packs and backpacks in their catalog . Does anybody out there own one ? How do you like it ?

    As my second post here, I would like everyone to critique my daypack that I also plan on using as a BOB, if need be. It stays in my vehicle at all times (except hot months, where I try to keep it in cooler places). My setup: Kelty Redwing (sage green) Patagonia Rain Shadow rain pants North...
