Here’s a quick video showing how to load up an Exo 3500 out in the field. I had 45lbs of gear in the bag, 55lbs of boned out meat and another 10lbs between the head and cape.
We’ve had a few people thinking you need to get the lip on the bag that connects the bag to the frame panel back up and over the frame panel. All you need to do is connect the two compression straps back up and over. This allows the load shelf area to haul just about anything you can strap in there. I like to run the lid compression straps inside the load lifter straps so they don’t slide off the frame panel. Also I was using the meat shelf here and it does come in handy with the boned out meat, allowing me to keep it up nice and high.
