I have been trying to decide on a new pack for my kifaru frame. As of right now it's only been used in Colorado. I want a bag that can be used in the Midwest but also be used out west as well (at least for right now but will probably buy another one next year). I seriously considering the nomad 2 because I can really shrink it down for here in Missouri hauling a stand or blind onto public ground. However I would like to see one with the camp bag on it and loaded up with about 7 days worth of gear, and this is where I start wondering if the emr series would be better but unsure how well it would work for deer back here and chasing yotes and turkeys for the most part of the year. I know I have read where other people suggest the reckoning and no offense to kifaru but with their pictures it's really hard to tell what the capabilities are for each pack. I used the amr last year and while it worked for my trip I just could not get it to work for the majority of the stuff I do back home. I'm also new to all of this stuff so please correct me if I am wrong about any of this or if I am way off base on my selections.
