Not sure.  I'm actually trying to get it changed back to black.  I am going to call again Monday morning.  I didn't notice that the 40 bucks extra I paid was for the multi cam...thought it was tax, until my friend pointed it out.  I was on the fence as it was about getting camo because of the 3.5 ounce weight gain...once i found out I paid for it, I didn't want it anymore haha.

I think I'm going to go with the Kifaru KU5200. I also think the bikini frame with the DT1 bag or DT3 bag would be good.
The T1 is one of the best packs I've used. I may just stick with that.

I went with the bikini to have the option on multiple bags. I loved my duplex frame but really like the idea of saving 2 1/2 lbs. Personally I was not a huge fan of the timberline bags. I like the simplicity of the highcamp.

Actionshooter, mines a 24" frame and your more then welcome to take it for a spin when I get it.

I'll take you up on that!
 I'm a big guy and have a tough time finding packs that fit. I really want to run one before I commit.
 Thanks!!

I'm going to be ordering a DT1 for it.  It only has a one month lead time (compared to three for the frame).  So I'm cutting it up into two money hits, or until my bonus comes in.  I wanted an external frame for the versatility it allows.  I don't necessarily see the advantage to going with an internal frame, while I see other advantages of going with the external (such as adjustment to carry meat outside the bag), the ability to add different bags for different hunts.

But really I don't think I would have been wrong to go with the T1, and the weight is pretty equal with the new bikini and DT1.  I was originally going to go with the HC bag, because I was a big fan of the bottom pocket, and would just at the pockets for my spotter.  The more and more I thought about it, the DT1 had what I wanted, why mess around with the HC bag.  Anyways, I'm really excited.  I ordered the 26" stays.

It kinda looks that way from what I have been reading..... :cheesy:
 I was looking at the stone glacier and this one came out, a lightweight pack has been something I have been curious about.

I have been looking at these and thinking of pulling the trigger.  As far as bags, I'm leaning toward the DT3 that has some pockets built in, as I like quick access for small things.  There is not much of a weight penalty with the DT3 compared to the new bag either. 

And then Hill People Gear just announced their Ute pack and Prairie belt, another option is this space.  http://www.hillpeoplegear.com/

It is really nice that he always has too much hunting gear! I told him the other day that I was thinking about buying a pair of Sworo binoculars and he said "For what?"  :tongue:
