How To Properly Fit And Adjust Your Pack
I picked up this pack because of the built in gun scabbard. I wanted something that would protect my custom rifles and leave my hands free to glass as I moved. The scabbard does a great job of housing a majority of the rifle and the weight of the rifle goes unnoticed. The lid has two entry side zippers into one main compartment. The compartment is big enough to fit my Swaro 15s. The pack has a two smaller side pockets that run vertical on each side of the pack. Very good pockets for items like water, kill kit, snacks, ammo.. etc. The side pockets are just big enough to fit a 65mm spotter. The main compartment is a big mesh bag that looks like it could hold a bunch of meat or back country gear such as a tent or sleeping bag. The only thing I would wish for on this pack is a place to comfortably house my Swaro BTX 95mm. All in all the pack is knock out of the park as far as ergonomics. I did put on the pack with all my gear and rifle it was very comfortable with about 40lbs of gear.
Ordered the J34 primarily for archery deer hunting from a tree stand. The pockets and expandability were great for how I planned to use the pack. Rifle carrier allowed for other uses also. Ended up returning the pack because the material is way to noisy, especially when it’s cold and the waist belt was short for my 36” waist and wouldn’t allow easy access to attached pouches.
I do not think there is a better backpac to take for a week or more hunting trip
Once in hand, the build quality is apparent. Took about 30-45 min. of adjusting the pack and walking around, and then loaded it up for an all day duck and pheasant hunt. Just having it for the mile swamp hike to our spot was worth the money. Kept my gear dry, and was comfortable to wear even after multiple miles of walking. We tired out a lab, and still I was still good to go. Excellent piece of kit for anyone who hunts deep of the beaten path. Can't say enough nice things about it.
It holds a lot of stuff bought this for my first elk hunt loved it. Just need to get used to it but works great for the hike to our campsite and back out.
