Looking at getting a Zulu from Kifaru, just wondered if anyone else had any preferences. The Kifaru line just seems so modular and able to expand way greater than any of the other packs I have seen. Just looking for some opinions or other options as they are Pricey. Thanks

Lightfighter has some RAIDs back in stock! It's similar to an Eagle AIII with a ton more PALS so you can strap whatever you want for pouches on the outside. I love mine.

I love mine here.... It's a great pack....
The expansion on top was perfect when i loaded up for a week on vacation... a good size load... Also used it with the shoulder straps only, w/o the waistbelt... i had 2 other family luggage bags hanging off of mine... who knows what the weight was... kinda felt like the abomanable snowman, but it was Comfortable as hell....

Yah it is a little $, so make sure you know the sizes of what you want, and what you want it for.... otherwise it IS WORTH IT!!!...

I use mine to carry multiple textbooks/laptop all the time. I have the AIII frame sheet in mine and it's not bad at all to carry larger amounts of weight. I don't have a waist belt yet, but I assume it will only get better (from my experience with other packs).

I may have made a wrong recommendation for edblevi, but he didn't say exactly what he was after.

My goals are camping, hiking, survival tactics, maybe some mountain climbing in there if I get really spry. Looked at several decent packs at the local outdoor specialty shop, only they aren't really designed with webbing and/or adding gear in mind.

if you are going to do any climbing, you do not want anything strapped to your pack. keep it narrow and tight. if you can get ahold of a lowe alpine military pack, thats what id get.
