I started a thread a few weeks ago on getting a new pack, but wanted to get some feedback on just MR. Since I live in Bozeman, I can easily go to the MR showroom and check out everything they have. Went in today a little before they closed because they used to be in a different location and I went there first. Talked to the very helpful girl inside, and she suggested I come back and plan to spend about an hour checking stuff out, trying stuff on, ect. She even suggested I bring in everything that I plan to carry, gun included, so we can pack it up to see how everything feels. So I wanted to get some feed back of those with some experience with them, so I knew some things to look for, if you will. What are people's opinions of some of the packs? Favorites? I kind of like the idea of the NICE frame and being able to get multiple packs for it. I know its heavier than Kufaru, but what else do you guys think? A few questions to get started...Is the Crewcab enough pack to do a couple day hike in the summer, but enough to haul meat out on a day hunt? Would the Alpha be a better option for that? Thanks for any and all the help.
