I upgraded from an Osprey to the Kite. Just completed my first trek with this pack and it performed admirably. 15.5 miles of back country wilderness through old growth forest, creeks surrounded by laurels, briar patches, and over foothill area mountains. I was able to carry my water, food, shelter, ammo, and all the rest. It survived it all without a scratch and made sure I survived too.
I bought this pack for my wife’s GObag. It contains a good amount of basic survival items for her and two kiddos. It actually is more spacious than the Big Trick so if you’re looking for a gun bag/GObag this is a better option in some regards. But there are no smaller pockets/compartments inside. It’s basically up to your packing skills to organize it. It works really well but I would appreciate a few more interior or exterior pockets. Or just dividing panels.
The pack is great. I like minimalist packs, basic and lightweight. Use stuff sacks to organize gear exactly how I want it. Only complaint is the cost of the hook up kits and lack of guidance as to which hook ups to buy and how many. This is easy to figure out once you have the pack in hand but it would be nice if it is plainly stated in the pack information on the website. It is $60 for 3 sets of combo hookups to connect kite to the mainframe. I feel like this should cost half as much, if that.
The Kite backpack is just an easy do all back pack. Throw and go or grab some packing cubes/bags and organize to your missions needs. I’m a single dad of 4 and this back pack is great from the most mundane tasks as running to lacrosse practice and 3-4 hour hikes throughout state parks with my littles.
This pack is awesome! I’m able to pack everything that I need for a three day hunt. The laser cut utility panel is a must. The roll top allows you to increase your pack-out volume.
Have had the kite for a couple of weeks. Bought also the laser cut utility panel. Lite weight, versatile, and its emod compatible. You won't regret buying it.
As a gear junkie I fell in love with the first Eberlestock pack I ever owned, the X1. Since that time I have purchased seven other packs from Eberlestock, the most recent being the Kite. I have love every pack, but find myself grabbing the Kite more than the other packs. I love the simplicity, light weight, and overall size and function of the pack. I would highly recommend this pack for anyone wanting a sturdy pack with a lot of room at a great weight.
The kite is my first product from eberlestock. The pack is bad ass and the camo pattern looks rad. Tons of room and super comfortable. I’m looking forward to using it this season
Great day + pack and lightweight
