Hey Phil, I don't have a KU2200 out here to pull apart but I am curious about why you need that specific weight?

Mel: I orderd a ku 2200 an 3700 just before Christmas. I plan on taking the stays, hipbelt, and shoulder harness off the 2200 and using it as a stuff sack for my bag and clothes , and strap it to my 3700. When I get to spike camp I will use the 3700 stays, belt and harness on my 2200. This will give me a meat hauler daypack for hunting out of spike camp all day. This allows me to use the 3700 for storage of food and gear in the tipi as well as keeping the critters out of my food. I was just wondering what kind of weight savings I would get with this system.

Mel; Are the lumbar pads the same on the ku 3700 and ku 5200? phil

Phil, the lumbar pads are not the same. The KU5200 uses the same lumbar pad as the ZXR/MMR/EMR and the KU3700 uses the same lumbar pad as the Pointman and Navigator.

Mel; Thanks for getting back to me. When I ordered the ku 3700 I had them upgrade the hip belt with the 5200 hip belt. Will this also include the 5200 lumbar pad or is this even needed. phil

I talked to Lisa at Kifaru today: She informed me that the lumbar pad is sewed to the bag, so it cannot be upgraded. I forgot to ask the weight of the ku 2200 bag. I'll bet you guys and gals are really busy right now. phil

I recieved my ku 2200 yesterday. If anyone is interested, it weighs 26.4 oz. without the hipbelt and stays. It's going to make a great stuff sack until I get to camp. I threw 45lbs. in it and took it for a 4 mile test drive. It felt tons better than my bora 40. Tommarow I am going to compare it to my boys MR longbow. I feel the hipbelt upgrade is worth it. I have no dought It would handle alot more weight. phil
