Thread: Barney's Pack-What bag material?

  1. #1

    Exclamation Barney's Pack-What bag material?

    I'm ordering a Carnivore frame with a Hunter bag. I have two choices for the bag material. Cordura nylon in camo, or Kevlar, that only comes in black. They told me the Kevlar is 1/2 lb. lighter in the same bag. Same price for both.

    This pack will be used for sheep this August, and an occasional moose/caribou hunt. Priority-sheep.

    Which bag material do you guys recommend? The Cordura, or the Kevlar?

    Thanks for the help.

    Kevlar for me as well...seems to work just fine and a 1/2 pound weight savings for sheep hunts is a plus.

    I'll put in another vote for the kevlar.

    I'm assuming it's the only one they make, with the meat shelf added on the bottom.

    There seems to be a pattern here. I'll wait 'til I get as much intel as I can from you guys, then I'll order tomorrow. Appreciate the help, guys.

    Kevlar here too...regardless of what people say about price they're worth it and more- I'm a recent convert and couldn't be happier.
