Re: Riding with a Kifaru Pack
Brunse: I have ridden a horse once with a Molle Express. I found it a bit uncomfortable. My hunting partner and his buddy were riding in to retrieve an elk, and I rode in half way and hunted on foot while they took the horse I had been riding to pack the elk out. I followed them out on foot.
I wore the Mollex with an omni belt and the way it rode low made it hard to sit back in the saddle. Had to be leaning forward a bit the whole ride. I'm thinking that I could have packed it differently, maybe a bit higher and use the compression straps to keep the load up a bit to allow me to sit back a bit more.
I can't say whether or not another pack would do better. I would imagine that any pack with a belt would have this issue. Perhaps its just a matter of packing your bag for riding a horse. I'm wondering if Ed C will chime in with his experience riding with a pack.
Anyway, that's my limited experience riding with a K pack. Hope it helps.
