    Default KU3700 Pics

    Here are a few KU3700 pics from this spring and summer. I ran a slick pack, two long pockets and a small pod, and two long pockets with a Grab It. All for different missions along the trail. Average 3-4 day pack weight is around 30 pounds, and a week-long pack weighs around 40 max. What a great, purpose-driven pack!

    Nice.

    Does it get more sweaty hot with a Koala on at the same time?

    Edwood, I can rspond for Sawtooth as he's out of pocket right now. Saw and I wear the Koala full-time with our packs. The answer is: not if you wear the Koala "low", like you see him wearing it. I do the same.

    Precisely! The reason it's not so sweaty is that as you go through the motion of hiking, with forward, backward, and lateral movement at your waist and torso, the Koala gets some air behind it if you wear it lower like we do. The bottom of my Koala ends up about an inch above the waistbelt on the pack when I'm standing upright. It's very easy to adjust this height too...just tweak the lifters that attach the Koala to the shoulder straps on the pack. Wearing the Koala lower on your torso also makes it much easier to get items out of your shirt pockets, and also to unbutton your shirt for ventilation.

    One thing that amazes me is how that UL material seems to change shades with varying degrees of light on it. It's not like shadows of sort, but more like a chameleon. CB to foliage to almost OD. It's always interesting to see how this occurs in different pictures that get posted.

    Sawtooth,

    What is your rationale for going with the 3700, two long pockets and a small pod versus a 5200?
