The Eberlestock 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 7.75 lbs.  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.

I bought this to replace my army issued medium ruck sack. Fits great with the harness adjust system and easily fits a 3 day load. Very well constructed and comfortable to wear even with a 40lb load.

Awesome Ruck

Bought the Tomahawk to use for hiking and backcountry long distance rucks. Great size and the weight distribution is on point. Only thing I would have preferred is molle on the backing, similar to the Fac track, instead of the nylex back wall. Nitpicky I know.

I ordered this pack from Canada. Pack came surprisingly fast. Pack is absolutely beautiful. Super well made and extremely comfortable. I Would never go with another Pack!

Pretty great pack with some really odd designs

The adjustability, comfort and fit of the pack are great. The storage is pretty good for the most part. However, they decide to put uncovered vertical pockets between the main pack and the covered sleeves. It’s really odd and doesn’t look or function well. Plus there are no drain holes it appears. I love Eberlestock and this pack is super comfy, BUT, unless they would offer to fix the outer pockets and ad some type of bottom flap retention, I don’t know if I can recommend to others. Ask me again in 3 weeks though….

Small details matter

This review is based off of a three hour trek with approximately 40 pounds.

-Super comfortable pack. Between the support offered by the frame and the thick padding you would be hard pressed to find something more comfortable.
-There is enough room in this pack to hold anything you need for several days and adequate pockets to organize everything.
-The storage in the top pouch is amazing and broken into several compartments. The main pocket on top is extra large. Then there is a small pouch with an internal clip to secure keys and such. The third pouch on the top compartment is perfect for folded maps.
-The zip front or draw string top access is great depending on what you are packing and the amount you are packing.

Cons: There are very few but they make a world of difference.

-The top pouch is removable and as such the clips are in a horrible spot. Even when tightened to the fullest they don't keep the pouch directly over the draw strong opening and as such would allow rain to pool on the top and into the bag. The clips simply need to be removed and sewn further down the
back of the bag in order to keep them from pulling sideways or allowing the top pouch to pull so far down the front. For a $400+ bag I would expect a much better design then this.
- Customer service was absolutely horrible. I ordered my bag on a Monday. I received the Bag Saturday and that same day saw a special. Spend over $400 and receive a free dagger hydration pack $129 value. I called and requested that the special be honored to me since I had literally just received my pack the same day. They refused to honor the special for the purchase that I made only days prior to the start of the special.

Overall: I am disappointed but would purchase again. I will remove the back clips for the top pouch and have them sewn further down the back to create a better fit on top. That will make this a 5 star bag. Just frustrating that it is needed after spending over $400 on it. Customer service gets a 1 star.
