Love the way it holds my gear.
This is a nice little day pack that can be used to haul meat. The problem is if you are over 5'10" or have a longer torso this pack will not fit you very well at all. I'm 5'10" and the pack rides up on my shoulders and there is no weight on my hips. It's all on my shoulders This makes it very tough to carry heavier loads.
It's doable but after having the full load on your shoulders you ill be hurting. The pack is fine until you put a load on it.
The pack could really use an update and some major improvements. First off I would lengthen the torso and make it adjustable with Velcro. Make the frame a bit longer to accommodate the longer torso adjustment.
It really needs some usable load lifters.
The pack needs to lose some weight as it's heavy for it's size. If they made these changes I'd buy another one.
If you are under 5'10" or have a shorter torso this pack would be a very nice daypack that can haul meat.
it’s the perfect pack if your a saddle hunter that also self films your hunts! There’s a place for everything! Definitely five stars
OK ... I've been putting a pack on my back and heading for the hills for well over 60 years. Back in the day the pack was canvas, unpadded webbing straps, and no hint of a hip belt suspension. Since then I have used any number of high quality, technical pack frames and packs of all sizes from Kelty, Lowe, Rivendell, Osprey, Alp Sport and the like. I even have a artisan-crafted pack basket that I use from time to time (It's great for farmer's markets).
I've had the Eberlestock X2 Pack for less than a year and I love it! While it's a relatively heavy pack for it's size, it comes with a fully functional and comfortable suspension that you'd expect on a pack with two or three times the capacity. This is important for me because I'm occasionally overloaded with camera gear for wildlife photography. I've used it traveling on foot, with snowshoes, and back country Nordic skis. It's as stable a pack as I've ever had. I've stuffed a spotting scope or telephoto lens in the spacious exterior pockets. One day I discovered I could cram both cooking gear and food in one vertical pocket for a long day on the trail. And the hip belt pockets are the most functional I've every used. They've held everything from snacks on a day hike to spare magazines for my .308 semi-auto rifle during an elk hunt (Benelli R1).
And this review was provoked by an outing this week when I took two of my grandchildren on the trail. One is a 12-year-old boy who is deaf and autistic (plus his Golden Retriever service dog), his older sister is 13. We were headed for a project where a large tree had fallen across the trail and needed to be cleared, so I was carrying a wooden take-down bucksaw, hatchet, axe, draw knife, brace/bit, and chisels (we made benches). I also carried the necessary equipment to make a trailside dinner for the four of us. The Eberlestock X2 carried all the gear with no problem.
This is the bees knees for saddle hunters. This pack holds your sticks and platform securely and easily. The outer material is quiet. The inner pack material is a little loud, but I imagine will quiet down with wear and use.
One thing I will say about fitment, is what every other taller customer has stated. This pack sits very high up on the waist and I find myself buckling the waist straps above my belly button. I am 6'0" for reference. The load lifters are also not ideal for a taller user, but these two gripes are a small price to pay for such a versatile pack that can't be found currently anywhere else. This is my preferred method for packing in extra layers, full length climbing sticks, and a Tethrd Platform.
