My Late Season G2 with 3 KU Longs and Medium Pod at top. Completely love this setup because the KU Longs and pod weigh so little that I can put them in a stuff sack and not worry about them. But when I get Meat ready for the bag, all my pack gear goes in the KU Longs and Pod and the Meat goes in the Pack. This is a sickness I tell you what.....

It's upsetting that we can't get KU stuff anymore. The KU packs weren't really for me but I would love to have some KU pockets. Especially a POD.

Nice set up shtfco.

EDIT: As it turns out I'm crazy. You can still get PODs and such. Sorry guys.

Yep I was going to say you can still get the KU Pockets ordered just not the packs. The KU stuff is really nice. Enjoying this setup!

I got a set of KU Pods, and I love them. I posted on here with a link to rokslide on how I was using my three pod set as food bags and stuff sacks overall. Drop an animal and the pods go from inside the pack to the MOLLE webbing, and my Kifaru Meat baggie goes inside the bag....

I have a setup similar to this but with a non KU large pod and back pouch on my MOLLEX. I am thinking along the same lines you guys are, haul everything in, use the MOLLEX to take out meat while everything else is in the large pod. It seems like a fantastic idea, I just need to make it work for "real".

That was about 60lbs give or take. So yes it was close to double my normal. Wish I could have took less, but was picking up a little extra % of the wife's load.
Camera gear weighed in at 20 of that 60, but how else do you get these:

nice Pat. I got a KU E&E incoming I have a medium KU pod and 3 Top zip Longs Im not sure if the KU is going to work like I wanted. Its great for attaching to the outside of packs. but for stand alones its hard to use them cause they dont keep shape unless they are stuffed with goods. I may have to have a Ku Madness sale to get my Tipi stove =-).
