Eberlestock J107 vs J107M

I've been researching hunting packs and have narrowed it down to the Eberlestock. I'm leaning towards the J107 instead of the J34 but I'm interested in getting more information on the J107M. Does anyone have experience comparing the J107 with the J107M? I don't have a place around here to look at one. I plan to use it in multiple places; Wyoming, Alaska, and maybe down here for some white tail or hog.

Gordon,
I've got the J105, which now must be the J34 and it worked out great on an elk hunt. It can carry as much as you can carry!
I'm 5'10" and it fits me fine.
I've heard taller guys may get a better fit with the J107.

The J34 replaced the J104. I have the J34, and it's about as good as it gets in a pack. Eberlestock says the J107 is for the taller guys, I'm 6'1" and the J34 fits me well.

Re: Eberlestock J107 vs J107M

I just packed out a mule deer, not the whole thing, with my j107 Dragonfly.
I'm amazed how well it carried all the weight without being uncomfortable. I'm only 5'8" at least in the morning ;-)) and it fits me.
I like using the removable fanny pack for coyote hunting here in WI but the whole package was what I needed in WY.

Re: Eberlestock J107 vs J107M

I have been reading about the Dragonfly J107 this past 4 days, and without a doubt they are the next backpack I am buying!!! They actually have a deal in the webpage, where you can get the J107, and some accessories for $415. J107 Dragonfly "Kit and Caboodle," from $415- Look for them as Backpack Package deals.
I believe the only difference between the J107 and the J107M are the colors of the backpack. The J107M comes in military colors, and the J107 comes in different camo patterns.

I also picked up the heavy duty rain cover and used it to put the rest of deer meat in Ryan's pack.

Re: Eberlestock J107 vs J107M

That's exactly what I needed to hear. That someone who's 5'8" can wear a J107. I think I'll go for that model in one of the non-mil options. I was also looking at the package deal and will probably go for that also. Does anyone have experience with the 2 sizes of expansion packs and which might be better?
