    for the money involved.. what your doing... .you could buy a nice cart and not carry anything till you get to the door..

    I would not want to use the new KU line of Kifaru packs for that. Food stuffs in boxes with sharp corners may puncture the light weight fabric. If I was hauling groceries I would want a cordura pack.

    I'm with Vince in thinking you could find a cheaper way than a 600 dollar pack.

    i went and wieghed out everything i would need for a two week time frame food items came out to 80.pds for everything i would buy for a two week time .the winter food list is a little larger than a summer time list for lot of things i will not buy because of the the foods are more for a winter time diet than a summer time diet ..

    along with the fact that i might be able to get out of the house for a couple of days because of bad weather .. i will post the list later of what i buy in food items in two weeks time frame later on

    thank guys for the info on the one pack maker..i have a bad habit in the winter time of buying extra food items to keep in the pantry for those days that i could not make out of the house because of bad weather in the area shut everything down ..so i got into the habit of makeng sure that i keep extra food stuffs on hand for that just in case weather problems did not allow me to get to the store for the weekly run for food ..

    Check out the Kelty Wrangle backpak. 120 bucks, I got mine from Lifeview Outdoors.

    I do the same in the winter, haul all my stuff from the store in it. It gives me a new appreciation for my food when I say grace at mealtime if you haul it on your back, also a great way to stay in shape.
    It's a backloader, not a toploader, holds a lot more than you think, and I've gotten as much as 50 lbs in it. Put some padding in the bottom to keep the sharp edges off the bottom. It rides very well loaded.

    Oh..one important thing...a case of beer fits in it easily with room to spare...lol
