Re: Eberlestock users -- opinions...

I went with the Blue Widow (J109) and purchased the rifle scabbard as extra. One of the things I like about the J109 set up is that the scabbard can be set centered in the pack, right along your spine. Just seems to fit me better. As far as the scabbard working with your rifle, in particular the scope and Harris bi-pods, I'm not sure. scope shouldn't be a problem, but the bi-pods may be a tight fit. An alternative you can look at with the J109 (really like the versatility) is to look at the wider Tactical Weapon scabbard, designed for all the variations of military tactical firearms out there... it'll fit anything. and will fit into the sleeve of the J109.

I have used the J107 for a couple years. It's a great pack with plenty of adjustment, both in the waist and the shoulder height. I don't use a Harris, but yours should fit just fine.

When you are in the market, give the guys at the Outdoorsmans a call (800-291-8065). They carry Eberlestock, as well as Badlands, and they designed their own external-frame pack that wears like an internal-frame pack.

I use the Eberlestock gunslinger. It's good for an overnight stay in the boonies, but a longer stay will require a bigger pack. I just wish the pack itself weighed a little less. The trade-off for quality is weight.
