Hey guys, i got my hands on a stone glacier pack for the first time and will be leaving friday with it. I will make sure to take notes and record a departure weight and hopefully a return weight if im successful. But how have guys been liking this pack. My first thought was 6000ci looks small but i just used a barneys pinnacle and cabelas alasakan extreme the week before. I know i can get all of my gear in it and if i bone out meat i dont see an issue for getting everything loaded.
Im also impressed by the rods that support the pack and seem like they will load well with weight. In alaska i know most guys like to throw the barneys name around and say theres no replacement, but for certain circumstances allow for different gear. This is definitely no moose packer but i wouldnt say an 8 pound barneys is the perfect sheep pack either. Although if you knew you would be successful every hunt you might just carry the barneys.
Tonight i will reload the pack and get some weights before the friday drive and saturday departure for 7 days. Im hoping for a solid new piece of gear and from the previous trips that this loaner has been through it looks to be holding up well.
