After 6 months of debate and procrastination I ordered a Qui-Ya about a month ago...
 
I meant to get back to you after Mark scared you off with the "qui-Ya isn't big enough" talk. Glad you pulled the trigger anyway, Considering the decades of experience behind your opinion, I very much appreciate that you're liking this pack.

The qui-Ya looks like a great pack--I spent a happy hour yesterday bending stays and shock-cording G-hooks--but curiosity has gotten the better of me: what's the function of the tabs on either side of the metal pulley (where the two-inch strap from the harness passes through)? 

At any rate, a "Ute" with shoulder lift has been on my wish list for a long time now--although I admit y'all did set off a kind of mid-life crisis when I realized that, you know, this is the last big pack I'm likely to use in my lifetime.;)

Those are backups in case the center pulley breaks or pulls out. You can use a couple of G-hook terminated straps (the delta straps that came with your Prairie Belt) to re-attach your harness.

Got you--that's a great bit of redundancy.
