I have one pack a kifaru. Had to send in the frame to get fixed and have new shoulder straps put on this year. Just got the frame back 3 week turn around and 59 usd to fix .
One thing I have found as true is lightweight = less durable and last thing I want when solo chasing a big buck is a pack failure. The kifaru has never let me down.
Good luck w your choice seems to be a lot of good options out there but for me I again will run a Kifaru.
Sure hope to pack out a couple more on this pack!!

That's a pretty fair elk I'd say!
