Hey Craw,
Any pics anywhere? How are they for short people? Everything I've ever tried either hit the ground or the back of my ankles. I really like what you had goin' last time you posted about it though. Sounds sweet.

Count,

I've modified the way to mount the pack slightly. It just takes an added cam strap and some different positioning with the exisiting straps and you can carry a big boat on a short person. I'm only 5'8ish, and can easily hike with the large M3, which I think is over 8'.

Well worth the money for anyone that plans to do any hiking. It pays for itself after the first use. Also, it only takes about 10 minutes tops to rig up, is easy to use with gear stuffed in the boat, and cuts a lot of hiking in time almost in half. The only disadvantage is that if you are bush wacking or scouting it doesn't work so well.

I've done multiple hikes with it, the longest hiking out of the second gorge lime, about 2+ miles of uphill switchbacks. The Upper Taos Box hike out takes about 15 minutes with the pack.

UTB 15 minutes my nut sac but does significantly reduce hiking time. Highly recommended.

Thanks for the thumbs up Kyle/Evan...

yeah I have already got'n rid of a bunch and have about 10 left from this batch. Looks like they are a hit on the east coast.

I am just advising for anyone wanting one soon... let me know sooner than later as I won't do another batch for a bit.

Hip Belt Attachment

Hey Marty. I need to get just the waist belt attachment for your crawpack (I have the early version without it). Do you sell those seperately? Would it even be worth it? Let me know. Thanks.
