Thing is sick!

I’ve been using this for rucking and for work. You can fit a ton of gear and clothes. This pack makes it a breeze to keep everything organized. Unmatched quality. Will never buy a pack from another brand again.

Everything I need.

This will likely be the last line of packs I buy. I love the modularity of it. It does everything I need it to do when I need it.

Durability, Versatility, Comfort

I just broke my pack in climbing 3 miles to the top of a nearby mountain. This bag is exactly what I was looking for.

Great pack

More expensive than my first car

When you need to count on something to work when you absolutely depend on it… you don’t get that by going cheap.

New Range Bag!

Swapped out my old frameless pack for an Eberlestock J79 Skycrane II. It is a modular bag system that has an outer bag with two side saddles (base “J79” pack) that wraps around a frameless inner bag (“G1 Little Brother”) which holds most your gear. There is a detachable brain (“LP1 MultiLid”) that converts to a fanny pack. The side saddles can each hold up to 5 liters of water, or longer items like tripods, tents etc.

*While the 3 bags previously mentioned come together, there is an additional add-on Super Spike Duffel that you can get to attach to the back, but loaded it brings the weight up considerably and is pretty ridiculously big. You also need to buy some strap extensions if you plan to fill the duffel all the way.

You can carry a weapon between the large framed outer bag and the inner bag compartment. They also offer a scabbard to carry the weapon in but I don’t mind having it stick unconcealed out of the top of the pack.

I picked up two HydraPak 4 Liter water bladders for the side saddles and attached my shooting mat to the bottom. Fits all of my standard range gear with weapon inside, and with weapon removed it fits standard gear PLUS truing & maintenance tools, LabRadar, 3 tripods; pretty much everything I own🤘

With the inner bag removed you can use the outer bag to strap up and carry large equipment (like steel targets up a mountain) or use it to evacuate a casualty.

This is going to be great to lug all my gear to NRL Hunter matches 🤙

Honestly, for any combat trade or even hiking/camping amateur, would 100% recommend.
