Anyone have one yet? I just ordered one with their 10% off sale. Several guys I know have the older style FGoA packs and love them. This new one has a redesigned bag and weighs 6.5 lbs for frame and bag. It'll be replacing my Mystery Ranch Crewcab for hunting duty.

Interesting....hard to beat Barney's for a hauler....post pics when you get it and let us know what ya think.

I went from a Barney's to a Mystery Ranch and back to a Barney's...no regrets on ditching MR even though MR is a good pack I just feel Barney's did what I needed with more comfort.

Got it yesterday and fitted it last night. Much lighter than the older version and well designed and built. I was very impressed with how it felt with my kid sitting on it. I put a 40lb bag of wood pellets in it and wore it today at the gym and office. Probably 6 hours total. Pretty damn happy so far. I'll see how it does when I can get into the hills after this snow/ice melts off.

I purchased this pack last year as my first pack, so I can't tell you if it is better than any other packs out their.

I used it for a caribou hunt last year and I was able to haul both hind quarters of a mature bull caribou in a single trip.

Their website is a little outdated for sure. I put hands on it awhile back, it has close to the same fabric, just thinner material.

Edit: beat me to it Dan :)
