F53 Tomahawk Overview

The Eberlestock F53 Tomahawk is a long-range pack that's stripped of non-essential features, resulting a clean and efficient all-purpose load hauler weighing in at 8 lbs. 2 oz.  Its no-shelf Intex II frame combines the best characteristics of internal and external frames, giving the Tomahawk outstanding load-bearing comfort and performance.

Although stripped down, the Tomahawk is still feature rich. A floating lid doubles as a removable fanny pack go-bag.  Bottle holders, full length side pockets, and quick-stow sleeves are on each side. The main compartment is accessed through either a storm-collar top or the quick-pull spade front door.  The interior features a Nylex back wall (15"x11"), tuck pockets, and EMOD Hookup links.

From an Infantryman's perspective

The F53 Tomahawk is the most well planned design of an internal frame ruck I have ever possessed. The comfort, durability, and customization capability is a thing of beauty that any grunt will very much appreciate as I do. The thickly padded shoulder straps provide excellent relief for heavy loads and the ability to adjust their height with their ladder system ensures all shapes and sizes will be thoroughly accommodated. I really like how it came included with a rain cover as there is nothing worse than being wet and miserable knowing that the gear on your back is soaking up rain like a sponge adding weight by the second. So that was nice of them! And everything from the beefy zippers, zipper pulls, laser cut molle, removable lid, lightweight frame etc are top notch and i would highly recommend this pack for anyone in the military as well as outdoor enthusiasts.

Decent pack

Not exactly what I though it would be. This is my third Eberlystock purchase the other two were 5 star.

So far so good!

No issues with this pack at all. Haven’t had a chance to use it yet but it kind of reminds me of the pack I had in the USMC from 2012-2020. It has zipper access on the back so it’s easier to get to things in the bottom of your pack ETC. no issues with the floating top. Even if it’s a light load to can still tighten it to make sure it’s right on top covering the drawstring opening. Plus I’m sure you could throw a rifle in the pack And be able to hold it in place and cover from the elements with the floating top design. Not a bad pack at all. But 4 star cause I haven’t tested it yet.
