For those of you that own Kifaru hunting packs, please select your favorite packs. Pick up to TWO packs, that you actually use most often.

Longhunter and Late Season.

I have two Late Seasons, G1 and G2. Damn. I didn't think it could get better but the G1 is about as comfortable as putting on a hoodie.

Kmassaro, did you mean G2? I'm really thinking about the Late Season or Pointman, again. I sold a G1 Pointman, but I miss it. Filled a niche, I guess. If the G2 is even more comfy, all the more chance I'll get one. Anyone else out there that has owned both G1 AND G2 Late Season, please comment.

Since I currently can have only one, the Guide (G1) does it all and quite well. Would like to add a Late Season for ultralight couple day trips or day hikes as I miss mine greatly.

What if you hunt with a military pack?

MMR or Express for me.

I meant G2. Took it antelope hunting for its maiden voyage this weekend.

I don't think a pack could be more comfortable for me.

Late Season for about 75% of my hunting, Long Hunter for the remainder. The later in the year I hunt, the more necessity for the extra capacity of the Long Hunter.

Spike Camp & Longhunter Guide for me, though I yern for a G2 Late season. Somewhere someone is talking about how much stuff is enough. The Kifaru packs are so nicely flexable, that you really can do so very much by just chindhing down the excess...still a late season would look good on my back.

I was very disappointed that the E&E wasn't on the list as a choice for the hunting packs.
It was made to attach to the outside of a Siwash (IMHO)
Once at base camp the Siwash comes off and the E&E goes on.
Frankly it should be illegal for Kifaru to sell the Siwash without the E&E.

Long live the Longhunter. I used to think the Siwash was the cats meow, but as soon as I got the longhunter.... I like the longhunter because it can compress down for day trip, but can carry all the load in the world if need be.

I agree, love the Longhunter Guide. Only pack I need, until I need a new one.

Spike Camp and Late Season are my favorites.

Looks like the Late Season is the winner. Not real surprising, as the Late Season/Pointman is a great design. I thought the Spike Camp would get the most votes, because on the tactical side, the (Molle)Express is the most popular.

I use the DayStalker and the Late Season for hunting whitetails in northern Wisconsin...and when I go on trips, I piggyback them to carry all of my gear.

I like the Siwash. I find that its 4,200 cubic inch volume is sufficient for a 2-3 day hunt. For longer hunts Ill attach a medium pod to carry additional food. The pack compresses well for use as a day pack, and the top of pack height (even with top of shoulders for me at 511) on my G1 Siwash is low enough to not get caught up when ducking under tree limbs.
