Reccomendations for an external frame backpack

I'm looking for any input on external frame backpacks that any members might be using. I'm in the market for one around that 5000 ci size. I know fit/comfort is a big deal, but there's no real local guys that sell them, to try out. I've done some research on Stone Glacier, Barneys, Outdoorsman Optic and Mystery Ranch. Seem kinda pricey for only being used a few times outwest over the next few years, but I need something.

I have a Cabelas external frame pack, it suits my needs fine and its packed its fair share of elk.

A haiku is just like a normal American poem, except it doesnt rhyme and is totally stupid.

Re: Reccomendations for an external frame backpack

I have a couple of aluminum frame packs, a couple of Coleman Peak flex frame packs, a couple of Alice packs, couple of military poly frame packs, and a couple of internal frame packs. I'd say all have their pluses and minuses. If you're thinking used, PM me.....I cant use them all at once.
