User Review: Kelty Cache Hauler
Max. Load Carried: 140 lbs
Height of Owner: 5'9"
Price Paid: $165
Going for second trip for caribou in Quebec. First trip the guide asked to buy mine or my buddies. He had over 25 years in the bush as a guide. My buddy gave the guide his as a tip and bought another one when he got back to the States.
I tried one several other brands, the Kelty had the most stability and the best padding. The waist belt has a very firm foam that compresses under heavy loads and doesn't let the frame dig in. We packed out 8 caribou, and everyone that used the packs loved them. The metal supports for the meat rack seemed to help stabilize the pack more than the nylon straps of other brands.
