Re: Gafari Pack? Spelling??
I agree, it seems that he was refering to Kifaru packs. I had both a Longhunter Rendevous and a much pimped out Siwash and did not like the LHR after three trips here in BC. I do like the Siwash, but, I cannot carry the weight on it that some claim to have done.
I have owned/used a whack of packs and for many years, my favourite is the Mystery Ranch NICE series from Dana Gleason of Bozeman, MT. I can carry more weight, longer and with less discomfort with these than any others I have ever used.
The "downside" to them is that they are heavy and very expensive, so, one wants to think about your real needs before purchase. I have two of these, a 6500 combo and a CrewCab, completely rigged and three of their other packs and am totally satisfied; this is the first time in my backpacking life of over 50 years, that I can say this.
So, these are another option, IMHO.
