    Hey guys, being how the word is already out about the new pack and there are already some pics up on the bowsite forum, here is a shot of the pack for you. I'm sure Aaron will have some awesome in the field shots later today.

    If all else fails, check the bowsite link in the first post in this thread.

    I hope that isn't a "sleeping bag compartment".

    Phil, the Timberline does not have the Duplex suspension with removable frame. I think the easiest way to describe it would be a Longhunter bag with Wraptech Plus Suspension (like on the ZXR), with the addition of 2 dimensional slot pockets (one on each side) and 2 300ci utility pockets on the front. The majority of the weight savings over the Longhunter comes from not using the G2 Duplex frame and using composite stays. It should be that perfect middle ground between the Longhunter and the KU5200.

    TAK that bottom zipper gives access to the bottom of the pack. Inside, there's a flap that can be engaged across the bottom at the zipper level. (You can also leave it "down" for straight through top-to-bottom pack interior.) The engaged flap serves two main purposes: 1) Meat shelf. Getting heavy loads of meat up in the lumbar region is how heavy loads should be carried--much more comfort. 2) Yes, you can use it as a sleeping bag divider. Some guys will like a bag divider function; ALL guys will like the meat shelf function. Including you. Trust me.
