neck-001Review: EXO K2 Frame with Horn Hunter Attachment

By Ross Russell, Rokslide Staff

I had the opportunity to use the EXO Horn Hauler shed hunting in 2016, which was based around a skeleton frame. This pack rocked the mountains for many miles in comfort. The design was one that moved with your body, carried awkward loads very comfortably and was extremely light. My experience was so good shed hunting with it, I decided to use it when packing my two Idaho bulls out of the backcountry and once again I was pleased with how comfortable the pack was during the trek out!

So how do you improve on a design that was a huge success and created many happy customers? EXO listened to the voices of its customers, making subtle adjustments to a very successful design to increase comfort and functionality and introduced the new K2 Titanium frame.

KIFARU Reckoning Backpack Review
By Jordan Budd, Rokslide Staff

Besides being 100% made in the USA, one of the coolest and most attractive things about Kifaru is the number of bags they have for different situations. All are designed by true backpack hunters for real hunting styles and scenarios. Another huge point I'd like to make is the quality of Kifaru customer service. Every time you call in you're talking to people that know the product inside and out. I've also heard numerous positive reviews of Aron Snyder, Kifaru's Chief Designer, answering questions and calling guys back after hours, during the weekend, and even on the side of a mountain. You can't get that anywhere else.
