We took out the Blacks Creek Solution & Answer with the Grip-It frame on a Spring Bear hunt last weekend, we have used them during last elk season a few times, but really got to know them on this trip. Really love the detachable bag design. We had to make a tough hike up to a bear as light was fading so we dropped the whole bags and just threw in knives, water and took off. Pretty awesome concept. The packs maybe a pound heavier than others in its class but we really liked the way they felt on our backs. The belt and shoulder straps were a little stiffer than we liked but they seemed geared toward the capability of hauling a pretty heavy load. We will have to test that soon. Here is a photo from our hunt.
