If you have to cut through any scrub a big pack is pain and noisy. I would like a better daypack and think I will eventually pick up a macpac weka, and maybe cut the weird front pocket off and get twin needle or someone to sew a decent pocket on the front, but it may not be as packable as a huntech which can be folded in half or rolled up. Everyone is different, the concept of carrying any bone off the hill other than a decent head is crazy to me, always bone it out on site, so much weight saved.
    I use a Huntech 40lt. It’s big enough for 2 Red Deer back wheels and back steaks and all the other shit I carry.

    Both very light
    +1 for the Catcus Miklat just brought one after trying a heap of others but I'm yet to use it. Looks perfect will roll up to go in my big pack and one out side pocket.
    Only draw back is it may be a bit noisey in the tight stuff, but it looks to be built to last.

    They do soften up after a couple of washes. Ok in the tight stuff as they are very slimline

    Have ended up putting some shoulder straps on my waist belt so I can load it up and using the good old sugar sack pikau for jacket and other odds and ends.
