Eberlestock X1 Pack

My pictures never seem to work correctly....so if any one can fix them I would really appreciate it or the way to do it right.


FIRST OFF!!!This is sunday and our house is a mess but my wife hates to clean and this is how I do laundry...wash it and put it on the couch...also don't make fun of my Acorn Slippers, they are awesome.



I bought this pack because my daypack was only big enough to carry what I needed to clean an animal. This one holds enough for me to be out over night in decent weather, Plus it can hold my layers as I peel them off, and carries the rifle or a bow. I bought it at Sportsman's Wearhouse for $99.99. I tried to see how it held a 26" barreled rifle at the store before I bought it but with nothing in it the pack didn't hold it real well. I made a buckle on the top grab handle to clip around the rifle stock, for when the going gets rough and quick down the hill. When you fill the pack the rifle stays put alot better. (I filled mine with clean laundry!)


It also has lots of room for a spotting scope on the side of the scabbard.

The scabbard bottom folds up into the bottom of the pack if you don't need it.

It also is a pretty good rest, there is a plastic sort of frame in the back section that holds up pretty well, for sitting and for prone.



I have heard lots of bad things about the fit of these packs, but I am 6'9" and 280lbs. And I like the way it rides on me so I am thinking that it will fit most people.

I will let you all know how it packs.

Re: Eberlestock X1 Pack

OK here is how to do it

You need to delete all numbers and characters after "jpg" for each image.

It may be that you have the [image] at the start and end also. When you paste in the "image" block you should not be able to see [image] at the beginning and end.

If you do not understand my instructions then you will understand why nobody pays me to write instructions for a living [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

YES, you are big!! J?K

The complaint from most is the waist belt. Most packs with a "hip" belt transfer the weight of the pack to your HIP!!
My eberlestock waist belt is above my "love handles" (Just like yours) NOT on my HIP!! thats the complaint and it is a valid complaint. I still love mine and use it alot, I was to dumb to know the belt was not in the right place! LOL
I think the belt stableizes the pack more than trans fer weight! I don't over load mine just use it as a day pack.

Re: Eberlestock X1 Pack

I appreciate the pics and write up.

I've been studying their packs and couldn't decide on which to get, until now. Thanks.


Who took the pics? You wife or your huntin' buddy Mungus? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Eberlestock X1 Pack

Roy,

Better take a good long look at the Mystrey Ranch NICE system before you buy a pack. Can be used as a freighter, or attach a bag of your liking and have a pack. Lots of spec op people going to this system. Spendy but out of the world quality. So versatile and modular it's hard to beat.

Getting mine in a few months.
