How To Properly Fit And Adjust Your Pack
I first want to say that my four star rating is based on the construction and features of the pack alone. I will be using the pick this fall on a New Mexico mule deer hunt and will really get to test the pack more in depth then. The pack is made out of quality materials and it has the ability to be expandable which is a great feature. There are numerous pockets and lots of straps to secure your load. It was also very easy to fit the pack to my body size and it seems to sit comfortably although we will see when I load it with gear. I also like that there are some additional accessories available to customize to my needs. I did purchase the 2 liter hydration system and it was a tight fit empty. I don’t think you could ever get a 3 liter to fit empty much less when full of water. I would have liked to do this review after hunting with the pack to give better feedback as to how it performs in the field but it appears to be built well and should hold up well under tough conditions.
I picked up this pack in a discontinued pattern during an Eberlestock sale for under $300 as I was just getting into western hunting a few years ago. I've since had experience with some of the more expensive and lighter packs on the market and still believe this is a phenomenal pack for the price. I've run it light(ish since the pack weighs 7.5lbs alone) with just the days gear, and heavy with multiple days gear and meat, in each instance its done its job. I picked up the Spike Camp duffel which fits perfectly into, and onto (when there is meat inside) the pack and makes it easier to organize camp and spare gear. The side pockets, lid, H20 pockets, and the pocket near the middle of the back which I didn't find for the entire first year I owned the pack allow for compartmentalizing gear. Very strong pack. I've put in time walking and hiking with 5 gallons of water in the pack to prepare for the season, and never had an issue with durability. Cheers, and good hunting.
Great product however I wish they would have said that pattern was discontinued it has been almost impossible to get any accessories in the same pattern
