Re: Backpack for a big man ?
Daveinjax, good choice! I think the larger Longhunter will serve you well. I use my Longhunter Standard (38" waist and 21" torso length) mostly for deer hunting when I'm out for a couple of days. They are well made and the guys at Kifaru will provide a pack with a custom fit.
I have two packs; the Kifaru and an Eberlestock J-34 pack. Between the two, I'm covered for just about any hunting situation I'm likely to come across.
Start young, hunt hard, and enjoy God's bounty!
