Hello everyone. Bit new around here so thought it was time to start posting. My intention is to use this for a BoB, 2-3 day camping/hunting trips, and for long trips away from home. I'm generally not very hard on packs so I'm intending to buy a quality pack and keep it a very long time thus making the price a relative non-issue. From everything I've read Mystery Ranch makes some of the best packs around, plus the pictures and reviews on this forum alone ooze quality. I've also noticed there are more than a few pack "collectors" around here so I thought this would be a good place to ask some questions about this particular pack. - From what I've read it's the same design as the Big Sky pack, yet it weighs in at over a pound more. Is this due to heavier duty materials or some other internal design change? - Does anyone have experience with travelling by air with this size of pack? Is it small enough for carry-on use? - While i'm not a big fan of coyote brown I am having trouble deciding between it, foliage, and the multi-cam scheme. Any worldly advice on colors for a multi-purpose bag like this? Thanks for filling up these forums with great info. I hope I can contribute in my own small ways in the future.
