Sorry just saw this.....love it....love it.....love it. I think there is probably a couple packs out there that also offer the same versatility. My decision points for going the Kifaru route was.What do you think of the woodsman
1) When trying them on the frame has IMO an oversized lumbar square which fits me well.
2) Multiple compression straps and ease of use.
3) Flexibility to configure in a multitude of ways.
A) pack + frame
B) pack + meatshelf + frame
C) A+B + guide lid
D) All of the above with easy attach small pouches on the belt sides
E) All the above with a large and medium pouch on the outside
F) Frame + cargo net for meat hauling
G) Frame + cargo net + guide lid for short day hunts
Those are the main uses I'm getting out of it.....I'm sure there will be others as it has just a ton of versatility.
