I’ve used this pack a lot for scouting and hunting. While it’s extremely well-made, I have found it’s just not quite large enough for carrying much gear, especially if the water bladder is full. All the individual pockets inside are great to have, but also are often difficult to access, especially when the pack is full, which for me is nearly always.
I’ve own so many small hydration packs from army issue, hunting, back packing and such. None of them come even close to the quality ingenuity or performance of this pack from Eberlestock. Thank you for the work. I’ve already ordered another one of your packs from Amazon and I’ve got my eye on two or three more. You’ve converted me entirely. Now every other back pack I own is now sub par. Thanks for raising the bar.
I bought the Eberlestock Mini-Me for 2 purposes:
First, carry water and hunt essentials to the tree stand. This would be an welcome change to stuffing my pockets with noise-making gear or bringing entirely too much in a day pack. I have not used the Mini-Me for hunting just yet but the philosophy of use is the same — always have water and hunt essentials (kill kit, tracking kit, first aid.) I also bought the Scabbard because I like the idea of packing in my rifle / shotgun for deer / turkey hunts that require a longer hike.
Second, carry water and archery essentials for Total Archery Challenge (TAC.) I was able to carry the hydration bladder and also my collapsible water bottle. The rifle scabbard channel opened and was able to hold my arrow quiver tubes. And the rest of the pack was sized so I could only bring essentials.
The pack seems incredibly well built and well designed. Every inch looks and feels high-quality with no lack of attention to detail. The initial process of opening all the compartments, seeing what’s what, was an awesome experience.
Like many of the other reviewers mentioned, I could do without the bird bag and instead use the space. That said, the space that the bird bag took up also kept me from trying to overpack. 😄😄😄
Pretty good pack. Wish the game bird bag part was removable, but works well for what its designed for
Mini-Me Hydration Pack
I hope so. It appears to be very well made. Ample storage for snacks/gear to get through the day. I'll find out this fall, when Maine's bird/deer seasons. It will be useful for when we take the kids/dogs hiking/camping/fishing, and when I hit the trails on my wheeler.
If you're on the fence, buy it. You won't be disappointed.
Just the right size for New England Hunting. Enough pockets and space for a long day of hunting, scouting or hiking. Bird bag comes in handy for additional space of bulky items. Do a lot of still hunting/tracking and this pack is just the right size. Also have the Gunrunner, the Mini Me will get more use
Two things that I would focus on.
The extra bird bag should be completely removable. That doesn't suit my needs and I am considering removing it.
The rifle scabbard clip is in the center and doesn't work with my sig cross rifle. It should be adjustable using the molle.
The pack itself is perfect for dove hunting, scouting, and short trips. However the bladder that came with it started leaking almost immediately
Pack seams to be made well, handy size
