Have not officially used this yet. I did pack it up including my rifle and then my bow. Carried it around the property and it seems comfortable and robust.
I’ve been a Eberlestock user, for years, with several of their packs and jackets. If ever asked, I’ll push their products. Well, I have a fellow coworker/brother in arms/good friend, that is an avid hunter. And for years, has offered me meat, from his hunts. I’ve offered to help with fuel, corn, or whatever, just to show my appreciation of the meat and time he has spent, hunting, cleaning, and getting it processed. Sooooo, I reached out to his wife and asked what could I do, to show my appreciation. She had no clue and suggested I didn’t have to do anything. That’s not how I am. She later mentioned about him going on a hunting trip, up north. That’s when I thought that he might could use a NICE/GOOD hunting style backpack, that he could carry either his bow, or his rifle. I researched the Eberlestock line and came up with the X1A3, ordered it, and got it in. The next day, I advised him that I needed to speak to him, next to my vehicle. I “fussed” at him (leading as if I was upset/mad) and as I opened the hatch of my Tahoe, handed him the box it was shipped in, and thanking him for what all he has done for me, for the last 20 plus years. He was very appreciative and proud of the pack. When he got home, he rigged it out some, and sent a picture of it, next to his camo and rifle/bow, thanking me for it.
Using pack for short hikes. Works well, seems well made and is comfortable. I carry a rifle in case I see a wild hog or coyote. Bolt action fits very well, scoped AR fits but barely, probably need a tactical pack for AR. Definitely recommend this pack for day hunting or short hikes.
The best equipment.
A very nice, well designed pack. The side pockets are a bonus feature for carrying a small tripod and spotting scope. The gun scabbard makes carrying a rifle in rough terrain easy and protects it as well. I highly recommend it for anyone that does a lot of walking.
I very seldom write reviews but I very seldom order something and it beats my expectations!!! Very comfortable, well designed and my crossbow holds perfectly in the bow pocket. I'd totally recommend this pack.
Well constructed and usefull. Extremely light. Probably buy another
Backpack in the near future.
Took a chance buying this to serve as my coyote pack where hunts involve long walks through deep snow at night with a bulky Model 700 with a bull barrel and bulky night vision optics and power bank. Frankly, didn’t expect the gun scabbard would work for this rig. But it does. Plenty of compartments for the rest of my junk. Haven’t decided yet if I like lashing my tripod to the side of the pack or where a bow can go. Nice to have options. And this pack delivers plenty of them.
Impressed with most features of the bag. Good quality and small features. They seemed to have made the rifle slot wider to fix the complaints earlier buyers had. I left a star off because the outside material is the type of suede material that gets caught on things in the field, and with the rifle in tow the storage can get tight and seem a little too small for anything more than a day trip.
