I've bought this pack a couple of years ago for the military.
Very happy with the quality and accessories. I use it to hold an M24 rifle, 2 scopes, variety of accessories and personal stuff.
A little bit heavy, but very reliable and sturdy.
This pack does everything.
It can carry heavy loads, tactical and
It's great quality heavy duty gear but i was expecting it to separate from the rifle case way easier also the pictures and description make it look far larger than it is. I am impressed by the thought that went into designing this bag, there's little knick-knacks everywhere inside it
My father took us to dozens of Rocky Mountains week-long hikes for Elk scouting as a child so I'm no stranger to backpacking for the week dozens of Rocky Mountains as a child so I'm no stranger to backpacking for a week and not having access to running water or electricity. I've renamed the G3 Eberlestock that I purchased as the HULK. I've taken the HULK on treacherous hikes in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming and it's barely scratched. Usually, I am carrying a modified Savage 223 rifle for protection in the scabbard, +70 pounds of deer inside the pack as well as a Glock on my hip. Most of the other hiker's art tired and fatigued and complaining about their shoulders hurting and I'm just tired from hiking 7000 feet of elevation climb. This thing is so comfortable for my size once I got the straps adjusted.
It's not a light backpack but the weight of your gear is quite evenly distributed with the oversized padding and adjustable webbing. I cannot recommend the G3 HULK enough if you want a pack that wears like iron and can carry weight over rocky terrain when you need to also be carrying a gun. In a few months, I'm going on a hike to an area where goats are frequently known to use and they are not creatures who stick to easy terrain so this pack will yet again be tested. I'm not evenly remotely concerned that I will have issues other than I need to train my cardio and make sure I bring my gear. The Eberlestock G3 HULK will take it all in and hold it close to my frame, making it easier to carry heavy loads and keep a firearm handy yet well secured.
I will share if you one aspect of owning a pack like this is I get questions and a lot of them are "can you carry these heavy objects in your pack". For my daily carry, I do use an Osprey for school books but I'm there's no way I'm bringing bright red nylon in the backcountry. It would get torn, scratched, ripped up on branches and it's not remotely designed to carry 75 pounds of gear and wick sweat away.
I purchased my Eberlestock G3 HULK in 2012 and as I said before, it barely has any scratches, pilling, or wears marks and I'm not being gentle with this. One caveat is that I'm also using this as a drag back when hunting Elk so it doubles as a shooting platform. I take care of it, by cleaning it with a little green cleaner and I let it dry out after a trip, but I don't baby this thing and I think I paid a little under $250 for it. Next to my Savage rifles, this thing is so reliable that the Eberlestock company should be known for making tough products that are Tonka Truck Tuff.
Safety first and comfort right behind it.
