Because we carry so little gear, rambling hunters and backpackers are generally forced to make everything do double or triple duty. For example, a walking stick becomes a ParaTipi tent pole, a foil freeze-dried food bag becomeís a collapsible drinking cup, etc.
Of particular note, I think, are all the backcountry uses for a Kifaru backpack, besides comfortably carrying all manner of stuff. It can also be used as a pad, prop, pillow and a whole lot more.
<span style="color: #000099">I wonder how long a list we could make </span>of practical uses for a Kifaru pack Ė besides packing things - when far from the roads?
Iíll start the list off with two such non-carry uses. I often use my Kifaru packs as SHOOTING RESTS. Lying prone with a rifle or handgun rested over a Kifaru pack is nearly as good as a shooting bench.
I also occasionally use my Kifaru packs as a GAME PROP for photographs. When stumps, rocks or logs are scarce, a Kifaru packs fills in to get the animalís head off the ground. See photo.
