Re: Eberlestock J34 vs J107

Longbomber, thanks for the feedback, just what I was looking for. I think all the comments will lead me to get the J107.

Thanks,

Stu.

    Hi,
    Thought Id post my 2 cents.
    First I only bowhunt so it will be from a different prespective.
    I have a J104, J107, and Blue Widow. Ive tried many packs as Im kinda a bivy elk hunt nut. And E packs do exactly what I need. Thought my Mystery ranch CC was gonna be "IT" but like the Bluw widow better.
    The BW carries a heavy meat load closer to my spine than any pack the !)& is close but you can feel sag from the scabbard and opposing pocket area.
    I guess the Blue widow can have a scarrard added so this might be a option to check out.
    If you haul heavy meat loads out, Ive found it makes a difference.
    Ive carried entire cow elk boned in one trip with both the BW and J series, both good but only use my BW anymore.
    good luck

    Thanks for the feedback L-train. I had looked at the Blue Widow and thought it looked pretty good. I might have to bring it back into consideration. I don't have to have the scabbard, but some of our alpine hunting in NZ makes a scabbard a bonus.

    Cheers,

    Stu.

    Hey Kiwi3006, I am also in the hunt for a replacement daypack but spend most of my time in the central North Island mostly bush hunting. I have not found any solid reference on the Eberlestock packs re the quietness of the pack material when hunting - do you think the 107 is going to be suitable in this environment?

    Plade, Ill give ya my opinion on that.
    I sold my mystery ranch crew cab because the goretex like material was loud. The Ebrele packs have a pratty soft chamois finish that makes them not as noisy.
