Re: Which Kifaru Pack??
Honestly, you are going to be best served with something with the duplex or bikini frame in my opinion. If you are NEVER going to have to haul meat because you have a horse or packer, the SC or LS may be good options. The versatility of the duplex system is second to none.
I have had the duplex and bikini frames, duplex timberline 1 and 3 bags, and now the nomad. For a a day bag with the ability to expand to cover 7 days if needed and still haul a half an elk in one trip... the nomad is going to be amazing.
Being how this is a "long range rifle" site, the nomad also makes an awesome rifle hauler. Just put the butt in the grab it, secure the wings around it, and you have a stable, secure, and protected way to haul your gun, and it is reasonably easy to get into.
I have used badlands, blakcs creek, sitka, mystery ranch... I will never look back. If you are looking at a more affordable but similar option, the horn hunter full curl is awesome pack for its price point.
