Kuiu icon pro 7200
« on: January 10, 2017, 07:52:50 PM »
I just received my new icon pro 7200. Watching a video instructing how to put it into load sling mode they have a center strap on the board itself? Mine only comes with two tightening compressing straps that hook up to the bag itself my video may be a little old. But should that strap be in the middle for securing your load?? Thanks for any advice Drew

Those 2 straps are what you use to make the space smaller between the bottom of frame compared to top that's what holds whatever you put in the load sling.it stops it from sliding out the bottom

Copy that thank you, I think I got it figured out strapped a 75 pounds sand bag in it to see how it feels. The weight feels great in this pack. Thanks for the reply

There are extra straps that may or may not already be on your bag to go across back of bag between the side straps. These help take load off the bag at strap location.   For small loads i leave bottom clip and straps tight and just loosen side straps to put meat in.  For everyday use I sometimes cinch lower side and cross straps down to use just top half of pack keeping gear load high.

Thanks guys what's your honest opinion on this pack are you guys impressed. I was very close on getting a stone glacier because I can get 20 percent off. Even with 20 percent a guys still looking at 500. But after comparing the two which seem very similar when this pack was 33 percent off I couldn't pass on the 350 buck price. This is a def. Upgrade from my eberlestock dragonfly at 10 lbs

How the heck did you get a third off??? 

I too was considering a dragonfly but after playing with one at Sportsmans, I want more.

Kuiu had a huge pack sale pre christmas, think it was around black Friday.  Thought it was only 30% off.  I bought my Iconpro 1850 during that.

I love mine. I was a little overwhelmed at all the pockets and buckles at first and thought I would hate it. But everything has a place now and I can strap it down tight when I have less gear, then open it up and fill it when it comes time to fill it with meat and get heavy.

As a side note. Does anyone else have an issue with the top of the frame coming out of the little pockets on the actual bag when they lay their pack down? It really irritates me. Anyone else?

Keep the bottom straps tight and the frame will stay in place.
That would happen to me as well

Try packing meat outside the bag too.....i carry a big daypack of junk so I find that option a big plus.

Got my icon pro 7200 last year during the same sale... I like the pack a lot. I used it as an all day pack on my AZ mule deer trip last month and it rides really nicely.. For a day pack though, it's tough if I want to grab something right quick.. So many buckles to undo, but not that big of a deal... I got an 1850 bag and I'm going to try this bag for my up coming AZ Javelina hunt next month. Hoping the 1850 is easier to manage as a day pack and just throw my pig in the "load sling" area if I get one.. I'll let y'all know how it goes.. Might take me a bit though to figure out how to swap the 7200 and 1850 off the frame and get it put together correctly. I wish Kuiu had those instructions. I even called and the guy in the pack development dept called me back and said there's no instructions as of yet, but to call him if I ran into any snags.. Can't beat that price for a quality pack!

Watch the buckles - they have 3 slots and you only use first two generally. Never seems to fail one of straps I use 3rd slot and they dont hold that way.

Yes!! I was actually going to email KUIU about it. I'm not sure that tightening down the straps will keep it from moving because I'm pretty sure I have them as tight as they will go. I have the pro suspension with ultra bags and my one complaint is what is described above. I haven't heard of anybody else having the same problem so I figure I may have something attached wrong but I've been messing with it a couple years and still have the problem.

The strap on the bottom of bag pulls the bag down and keeps it from riding up

Just looked at my paperwork for mine the straps are called the lower bag attachment straps and pulling them tight  should keep the frame inside the top little pockets on bag

Well I just looked at my pack and I've had it set up wrong this whole time. I had the bottom straps attached to the wrong loops which wouldn't let it get tight enough. I just fixed it and now its solid! And to think I packed out two bull elk and two bull moose with it wrong!  :bash:

I just bought one of these over the holidays from a member. Just the pack & frame. No paperwork. Does anyone have a link to a video they found especially useful for dialing in the fit?
