nice saddle bad.
I attached it to my gunslinger to add more space.
Exactly what I needed.
More space for things I need to get quickly and do not open my backpack.
Getting an Eberlestock pack that fits all of my needs has been kindofa never ending journey. I own 3. I sadly bought a low drag pack and it's super lame. I wanted moderate capacity and a spot for my rifle with enough room for some layers and day hunt necessities like water and knives and optics and stuff. Then I got the pack and it has some weird spacers in it for paper work and lap tops and stuff. I cut all that out and still couldn't make sense of the pack so I ordered the low drag to help with the lack of compartments. I measured it out and knew the dimensions before I ordered it but was still surprised at how small it is. Now that I have it I realized I bought a 30$ sock with some Molly on it. It's going to help carry some stuff but it didn't change the fact that the low drag pack should be called the low enjoyment/low capacity pack and the saddle bag should be called the Molly money sock.
Easy to add to most any pack if you need more storage, or just something you can grab easily without digging.
These saddlebags were exactly what I needed to expand the volume of my pack. I've used them for additional water capacity or to stuff extra clothing when out on cold weather trips
I thought this would be a great way to add an external bladder pouch on my M5, so the two built in pouches could hold a spotting scope in one, and trekking poles in the other. However, the Saddle Bag does not have the loop at the top to secure your bladder to. This causes the bladder to collapse on itself and you can't drink from it. So I can't use it for that purpose. I'll have to find another solution for what I wanted to do, or modify the bag and sew in a loop at the top.
Had my eye on these for awhile now, glad I finally got them they are better than I expected. The process to secure this bag is a little different than the traditional way but it is every bit as secure and it goes on and comes off alot easier. I put it on the gunrunner pack it works perfectly looked like it belongs there.
Great product and well made. I don’t have an Eberlestock pack, but I own a saddle bag and four batwings that I use with two other pack systems and they are extremely versatile because of the molle. The saddle bag has Alice clips, but I just use a compression buckle strap through the molle on the bag instead. Great products, highly recommend if the dimensions are what you’re looking for.
As is, it functions as designed. I can't knock it. It secures easily enough and the flap strap is solid. I mean, I've purchased multiple. It would be good, however, if it was the same width all the way down. I'm not a fan of the tapered design to the pocket. Maybe there's a reason for it I'm not aware of, but it just seems to be a waste of potential space.
Fits exactly what I needed and a great add on to my gunslinger. It has fit my 3L camelbak, bivy bag, poncho and bungee cords. It came with Alice clips. I replaced them with Tactical Tailor Long Malice Clips which has a more secure fit.
It’s a great setup. I have two Eberlestock paks (a j34 and the F1 frame/vapor 5000) and it will work nicely on both. The only way it could be improved is to install two more mollie clips. Even that it deserves 5 stars.
