I modified some g-hooks to connect the top of the Stryker bag to the frame, and added some buckles on the bottom which really cut down on floppyness. I don't have pictures of the buckles on the bottom. But if I remember right i just ran them from the loops on the bottom of the bag, to the bottom of the frame. When I need to use the load sling i can just unclip them.

I Loved the Stryker for day hunting. Mine did get a little floppy at times but if I moved the straps to the outside of the bag and cinched them down it cut down on that a lot

I’m happy with my fulcrum from day to week long trips. Played the small bag game trying to make it something it’s not. It’s a waste of money and time. Get a big one and be done.

I bought a kifaru frame and striker panel as well. Seemed just the ticket. When I put it all together and put it on for the first time, it seemed a little heavy. Weighed in at over 8lbs!!

I sold it on ebay, and made about $50 on it. Bought a Stone Glacier instead, saved around 4 lbs in bag weight.

Kifaru was a good bag, just too darn heavy. Lots of other people like them, I know. Definitely not knocking their bags.

Something is off here, you should have been sub 6 lbs.
Stone Has zero packs at 4lbs.

Hmm, My Stryker, with some extra straps and buckles, a water bottle holder, and a compass tied on weighs 6.6lbs. I have the older Hunter Duplex frame, not one of the newer, lighter frames.

How big are the deer your shooting? My stature along with where I hunt, I’m not carrying out a deer whole.

I use a fulcrum now for everything. I did the small pack thing, imo it’s just trying to make it into something it’s not. With the fulcrum, if I’m in a hurry I can strap a whole quartered deer between the wings, strap it down and go.

Deer here are pretty small. I've weighed the last few ive kill ed They usually 80-85 pounds gutted.
