I was wondering if anyone has used the Terraframe 80 for backcountry hunts? I have a giftcard for REI and which is why I am considering that pack. If I decide to get something else I will just use the card for something else.
I have one. It is the same guidelight MT frame with a different pack bag. Same materials and build quality. Basically a metcalf with two long pockets on the back. It is my preferred configuration for packing. Those two pockets are great for those items I don’t want to go digging for in the main bag. If you want, you can still strap things to the outside of the pack too so you don’t lose any function.
it easily holds 3-5days of gear and could be stretched longer, if desired. It’s not a small pack or frame, but it can function as a day pack fairly well too.
