G3 Phantom Sniper Pack
I bought the pack a couple of years ago for hunting. I love the ability to just carry the rifle, the pack or both. I ordered a separate shoulder harness and belt so I wouldn't have to reconfigure the scabbard, which was a bit hard on the fingers. It solved the problem of carrying a heavy long rang rifle very well (I'm not so good on the quick draw, though). It will carry everything you need for a long day in the field (cold weather gear, food, water, bins, and the like), but watch the weight. The pack seemed to max out (comfort) around 45 pounds--less is better and that includes the rifle! Watch it when you reconfigure the pack from a scabbard only rifle carrier to the full pack. If you don't get all the straps hooked up before you hit the trail again, the pack will shift around a lot and beat you to death! This is user error, not pack design--just a warning for fellow users. Unfortunately I can't comment on how it handles meat, horns etc. Haven't had a successful hunt when using this pack.
It is a good medium weight pack and that was its design.
I bought this pack for hunting and it is the best pice of equipment I have it carry my gun scope ans caping supplies I have guided the last eight years I highly recommend this pack
My M1A with EBR stock, bipod, and optics fits perfectly in the pouch, tons of room for additional magazines, food, clothes, water and any essentials. Had it a few months now and the packs construction seems very solid, I hope to use it for many years to come, highly recommend for anyone looking to pack in for a long day maybe even an over night with light supplies.
It's an excellent pack!!
