Carrying a tree that far by hand would be silly, that frame looks like a good idea. If you're moving vertically having your hands free to pull yourself along or brake yourself on the way down would be very useful.Hand carry it is then trekking 15kms down a mountain whike carrying a tree on your shoulder is quite the work out. Ive done it a few times now and i was hoping you guys had an alternative. I was thinking maybe something like this but unless someone on here endorses it and tell me it works i guess ill just have to use me shoulder
I keep thinking an ALICE pack would be perfect. A compression sack attached to a frame. Top flap can be pushed to the back but the compression straps keep the load nice and snug, might reduce root damage and dangerous load shifting while on uneven terrain.
