I used them for the first time this year on an archery mule deer hunt. Boned out my deer and fit the meat easily in 2 bags. I really like them. Used them again for my bear and again, they worked great. I bought 4 of them. I think I'll pick up another 2 just to be safe for an elk hunt. They clean up easily, are super lite and pack tiny. A little pricey but good equipment usually is!

They're made for boned-out meat, so if that's what you do, they're good. Not big enough to put quarters in or anything like that. They're kind of long and narrow, built to put in or on a pack. Very lightweight, silnylon. Not waterproof though.

Plannin on boning out. Are they breathable? Looks like you could hang them, but would it cool the meat at all?

If its cool out then yes. This is not a substitute for game bags imo. It doesnt breathe, trapping moisture inside. They are good for transporting meat in/on a pack but should be swapped out for a game bag that will allow the meat surface to dry.

If you are close to your vehicle and conditions are right then perhaps you could leave the game bags at home or at the truck.

What he said. I keep some in my pack to transport meat, but I wouldn't hang the meat in 'em for any length of time.

Run the meat into the mesh game bags... hang to cool... drop in Kifaru meat bags to prevent getting the pack nasty inside.... assuming you bone as noted.

For bone in I still use the big canvas bags.... but they ain't light...

I have used Kifaru meat bags on two different hunts (neither were my bags as I don't own any....yet). The bags are super light and tough and fit in your pack nicely with boned out meat. That said if you are hoping the the silnylon will keep your pack blood free I have found that you will be sorely mistaken. The bags saturate with blood readily so the only real way to prevent your pack from getting bloody if by placing these meat bags inside trash compactor bags. This works like a champ. So I will use the meat bags in conjunction with trash compactor bags as this setup seems to work pretty well for my uses.
