I just broke my pack in climbing 3 miles to the top of a nearby mountain. This bag is exactly what I was looking for.
More expensive than my first car
Gets the job done!
Great pack, finally have room for everything I do wish Elberstock would include a rain cover and a sticker with the purchase.
When you need to count on something to work when you absolutely depend on it… you don’t get that by going cheap.
Swapped out my old frameless pack for an Eberlestock J79 Skycrane II. It is a modular bag system that has an outer bag with two side saddles (base “J79” pack) that wraps around a frameless inner bag (“G1 Little Brother”) which holds most your gear. There is a detachable brain (“LP1 MultiLid”) that converts to a fanny pack. The side saddles can each hold up to 5 liters of water, or longer items like tripods, tents etc.
*While the 3 bags previously mentioned come together, there is an additional add-on Super Spike Duffel that you can get to attach to the back, but loaded it brings the weight up considerably and is pretty ridiculously big. You also need to buy some strap extensions if you plan to fill the duffel all the way.
You can carry a weapon between the large framed outer bag and the inner bag compartment. They also offer a scabbard to carry the weapon in but I don’t mind having it stick unconcealed out of the top of the pack.
I picked up two HydraPak 4 Liter water bladders for the side saddles and attached my shooting mat to the bottom. Fits all of my standard range gear with weapon inside, and with weapon removed it fits standard gear PLUS truing & maintenance tools, LabRadar, 3 tripods; pretty much everything I own🤘
With the inner bag removed you can use the outer bag to strap up and carry large equipment (like steel targets up a mountain) or use it to evacuate a casualty.
This is going to be great to lug all my gear to NRL Hunter matches 🤙
Honestly, for any combat trade or even hiking/camping amateur, would 100% recommend.
This bag is my first non-issued military ruck but I can confidently say I will never go back to the MOLLE ruck. The only thing I regret is that I stuck with the issued crap so long.
This is the best and most versatile pack Ive ever owned. It can do everything I need it to and then some. Great material, construction and overall design Thanks Eberlestock!
