Thread: Longhunter standard vs T2

  1. #1

    Default Longhunter standard vs T2

    I am in the market for a 26 inch stay pack. I see a lot of positive feedback for the T2. What pushes people towards the
    T2 line versus the long hunter standard line? Do people favor the external pockets? Is there something about the overall design that gives the T2 the edge? The prices between the two are very close.
    Regards,
    Darob

    I got the T2 over Longhunter because of the weight savings and external pockets... Absolutely love it and wouldn't trade it for anything. Oh and you can get multicam!!

    Longhunter has the Duplex frame and suspension which I think can carry more weight confortably. But the timberline can carry alot as well. I personally don't mind a "big bag" and no pockets so I have a longhunter guide in foliage.! But if you are a pocket guy go timberline. Can't go wrong with either thou!

    I've owned seven Kifaru packs and the last one I ordered was the Longhunter Guide model with composite stays, a standard Timberline (simple flap) lid, and tactical belt with PALS webbing (for holding a holster adapter). All in my Longhunter Guide weighed 6# 6 oz. Compare that with a Timberline and the additional weight is not much more. I have a frame that can be removed for hauling and a much larger bag. The external pockets on the Timberline might be useful for a lot of consumers but I did not need 1800 cubic inches tied up in small external pockets. I can always cinch down my 7300 ci bag using the compression straps. If you compare apples to apples the Timberline really isn't much lighter than a similar removable-frame Longhunter.

    I'm sure the Timberline is an excellent pack, as are all of the Kifaru packs (and I've bought my share of them). But for me, I'd rather have the cubes internally along with a removable frame for a few ounces more.

    I love the Timberline packs due to the ability to organize things better with the pockets. It is a pack I have waited a good 12 years for from Kifaru. Being on the east coast and not needing a huge pack I have the T3 and it is a super pack.
