Tactical Platform Frame and Suspension

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a pack frame that you can carry anything that your legs can lift in, comfortably, whether it's an ultralight sil-nylon bag, firewood, or your friend who sprained an ankle. My configurations vary from a 2000 cubic inch day pack, rifle, and a cargo panel for meat, to a dry bag with an 8-man tipi, wood stove, and gear for me and my two kids. This pack is for those that want the ability to carry really heavy loads easily. Great for military, hunting, or all around backpacking, with the capability… Full review

KU 5200

rated 5 of 5 stars Ultralight custom made pack that handles heavy loads. 2#s 14 oz's lightest best ultralight pack period. Add on pods for for more gear. I put 125#s on this and it was as comfortable as any pack I have ever used.  Dont forget at two+pounds you get to add two to seven pounds free compared to other packs. That means you can carry almost a gallon of water and it won't be any heavier than most other packs this size. Custom made to fit your measurements.

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a 3700 cubic inch light backpack built by a long time U.S. manufacturer normally associated with hunting and military personnel. With its accessories and multiple attachment points it is able to be expanded and organized as desired. I would recommend this to anyone who would like a light pack that is capable of holding large loads very comfortably. I would like to begin by saying I am retired from a non related line of work to the outdoor industry and not a rep for this or any other company. Full review

8 Man Tipi

rated 5 of 5 stars This is an awesome tent. It is a tipi style and is floorless.  I prefer floorless tents and tarps for shelter anymore.  The Kifaru 8 Man tipi is 8'6" tall, 15' wide and 18' long. The tent itself weighs 7#s 9 oz. Add the large woodstove and it takes the total weight to 14 1/2 pounds.  This is the best group hunting shelter I have used. I would maybe prefer the 12 Man Tipi. Kifaru makes individual tarps all the way up to giant 24 man tipis.  I hope this helps and if anyone… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars I have been using the Kifaru Paratipi for about 4 years now. The tent itself weighs only 3# 8oz. And the small wood stove for another 3 pounds and you have the ultimate for a hunting shelter.  It is great for solo hunts over extended periods. Is great for two people for a few days and in a pinch you could put 4-5 people in it.  This is the best tent I have ever used. Full review
