    Kifaru and mystery ranch are two of the best.. i own neither YET because i dont have the money...i have kids.. i use an old military pack and it does just fine..but if you have money or at least want to check out Kifaru they are in wheatridge i belive or fairly close. I went with my body when he ordered one and they have weight to put in them as well. You can find used ones on line.

    The RMS place linked above, in Wheat Ridge, has some used packs, most of the used ones were Kifaru.

    People must be upgrading to the lighter frame kifaru?s. Im tempted, but 1 lb lighter vs new frame cost is where I?m stuck.

    The guys at RMS are great.

    Yeah, I've been looking for a "real" hunting pack and asked a guy to walk me around the MysteryRanch Pop-up 28. I had him fit it to me just before I bought it.

    Nice! I just did some scouting today with my Pintler, you'll love the Pop Up.

    This was at 10,500 feet, nice and green on the mountain this year.

    Good work. If I can find time, I'd like to load up the pack like I was hiking in to camp, with tent, bag, and pad in the meat carrier area and try out actually carrying a load.

    I've been hunting for at least five years out of my $30 LAPoliceGear 3-day bag. It's held up relatively well, but it isn't exactly comfortable and I've never had to actually put any meat inside of it.

    I started light today seeing that it was the first long hike I've done in a while. Just loaded up with water, a trail cam and the general safety survival stuff I carry. Will probably start hiking Sanitas in town here on a weekly basis adding a bit more weight each time.
