Re: Eberlestock vs. Cabela's Outfitter Pack

I have the Eberlestock x1 although not big enough for a back pack hunt it has packed out lots of deer and elk I am going to start doing "back pack hunts" this fall and I will be buying another Eberlestock for the job when packing in a heavy load you will need a good pack but for packing out a even heaveier load dont settle for anything less then a Eberlestock !!!!!

Eberlestock one tough pack. I have the J4 for backpack hunts & its nice and tough I've had about 70+ lbs and you wound think the straps would pull off some time when you pick it up it's so heavy but never a flaw just works.

Re: Eberlestock vs. Cabela's Outfitter Pack

First of all, I don't know much about Cabela's packs. I only know a couple guys who use them and they seem to like them. But, I do have an Eberlestock J34. It was pricey but I haven't regretted buying it and am positive that I never will. Reason is, I'll never need another one. I like it because it's light enough for short day trips but big enough to pack in lots of stuff for several days. Sounds like you will most likely need the J107. Eberlestock is legit and you definitely can't go wrong with any of their packs if you can save up the cash.

Re: Eberlestock vs. Cabela's Outfitter Pack

There is another thread going with some good suggestions you should check out as well.

Eberlestock (Dragonfly & X1) are the best I have used. I have use cabelas, and badlands packs and like the layout on some of the badlands packs but the way an Eberlestock packs a rifle cant be beat and they are very durable. My daughter hiked with us when she was 11 with the X1 and a Tikka T3 and said it was no problem and the gun didnt bother her.

Re: Eberlestock vs. Cabela's Outfitter Pack

I have a Cabelas guide series pack and the Eberlestock dragonfly. I have used them both on backpack hunts.

The Cabelas can handle the weight a little better and you can carry more weight due to space. I tend to use the cabelas when I am hunting the larger game like caribou etc. The Eberlestock is used for goat and sheep when I am doing a lot of climbing and I want to ensure I pay extra attention to how many comfort items I am taking.

If you plan on getting a lot of rain the eberlestock will weigh more after it is wet.

I have the Eberlestock J34 and love it. It has been to Africa to Alaska and their customer service is top shelf, some of the best I have seen. I dealt with the owner and he was great!
