All -

I am looking at the 5200 Icon Pro & 6000 Ultra - has anyone held both of these packs side by side? If so, what are the main differences between the two? Also, which would you prefer and why?

Icon pro and ultra run same frame I have the 3500 Pro bag and also a 6000ultra bag to swap back and forth. Bag difference is simple: Weight! Pro has lots of pockets and 2 big bottle holders and due to this weighs more than the ultra that is little lighter: less pockets, only 1 bottle holder etc. Kuiu has some great youtube videos you should watch, also kuiu was running a sale on the 6000ultras last time I was on their site.

Go to YouTube and search them both (if you haven't already). They have fantastic videos in all their stuff/lines. I recently bought the Icon Pro 1850 with suspension (no frame). Can't wait to try it out this year. Nicest pack I've ever had.

Thanks all - saw the outlet sale but they were updating the 2016 models. I appreciate all the feedback!
