I did a lot of research and ended up with Kifaru….no regrets! My 2nd choice was Stone Glacier. The deal breaker for me was Stone Glacier didn't have camo patterns or the large selection of accessories, lids, pouches, etc. I would recommend getting a larger bag than 5,000 cu in. There is hardly any difference in weight and you'll be able to haul a lot more bulk. A larger bag cinches down tight when unloaded. You'll always have enough room with a larger bag but you are screwed if you don't have enough room with a smaller bag! I usually have my bag filled to the hilt when heading down the mtn after a successful hunt....and mine is around 8000 cu in! There's no way I would have room for meat, cape, and all my gear on multi day Alaska and other hunts.
