The birthday discount is 20% off of one item. They say it is only good for 90 days I think, but I've used one before 6 months later. Looking at my history, I received the email on my birthday the last two years.

I just had my birthday in November. Coupon code was 20% off a single item and was scheduled to expire in 30 days.

I’m looking to get the new pack. I’m a 33-34 waist. What size suspension should I go with?

Thanks for the reply Rosinbag. Definitely a tall frame. I called their CS and suggested s/m but from what I read go with the l/xl

Anyone else who used the older hip belt and upgraded to the new one? Think its worth spending the money on the upgrade or sell my system to move to a SG pack?

Will the Stalker 500 attach to the outside of the Pro 1850? looking for more storage for outside of the bag
It is not necessarily designed to, but you could probably make it work. The pack accessory pouch would be a better option for mating to it.

If you have another bag like the 5200/7200 with a lid, you can also rig up a clip/straps and use the lid on the 1850 for extra storage.

I’m ordering an 1850 in four days when my coupon code is active. I have a stalker and can give it a try and let you know.

Here is the stalker and the accessory pouch on the outside of the 1850. They both can attach the same on the top. On the bottom they match up perfectly to the two loops your straps go through. Only difference is the way to attach just bc of the hardware on the stalker/pouch. I tried showing it in pics.

How do you like the new suspension on the 1850. Have you ever used an older version. Also how easy is it to detach the back for hauling.

To me it’s very Easy to get the bag off to use the load shelf or to put the load sling on. I love the bag. I had the venture 2200 which is basically the same bag, that’s a hair bigger and just had internal frame. I loved that bag so I know I’m good there. I never used the old suspension so I can’t speak on it. The best comparison I have to this is my MR GL frame and suspension. And from the short(1.5 miles 60lb Mortar mix) weighted hike I did with this setup it’s way more comfortable than it was. Time will tell for sure though but I’m definitely excited about it.

To all the guys using the ultra bags, how are you connecting your bow? I would like to be able to just buckle one in if I went this route but the bags don’t have center compression straps.

My 4000 came with the same set of quick connect straps that are shown with the pro bags. The sell them as a separate item if want additional. I haven’t tried their bow holder but like the idea of it protecting the bottom cam.

Thanks for the info. Are they solid one piece or split with a buckle in the middle?

Now that you mention it I’m not sure. I got two one piece and two with a buckle when I bought my bag. Online it looks like one pair of the one piece.
