Hi all,

Well, after two years of debating on purchasing a Kifaru pack and purchasing several others and selling them. I finally ordered one, after a great conversation with Mel here it is. My Marauder, I haven't made any pouches for it yet but here's my Recon pack attached to it. Sorry, but I just had to brag /images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

Sweet scores my friend! Welcome to your new addiction!!! Marauder was my first Kifaru pack and still my favorite!

I know what you mean, I didn't even receive the pack yet and I was already looking on the site for ideas on a second purchase.

Tell us about the recon pack?

I make them myself. It's about 17.5" T x 8.5" W x 5" deep, internal divider. You can't see the padded shoulder straps (I took up all the slack and laid it flat behind the pack so that when I attached it the straps get sandwhiched between the Marauder and the Recon Pack).

It's funny though, I didn't originally design the RP to attach to another pack. A fella on another board had a great idea to do it, so since the Marauder is the perfect candidate to try it I figured why not.

Here's a pic of the RP by itself:

seigi- Welcome! What do you use to accomplish your 'bartacks'?

To bartack I sew it 4 to 6 times alternating with backstitching depending on the pouch/pack.
