barre army navy store has more choices of camo h2o proof fabric then you can ever use. I used the same pattern as james did for our wind/rain blocker on my boats duckblind. Good stuff and very light andthey have sales all the time.

Just bought a new Kelty pack and looking into a carry system. I like Kifaru's GunBearer but probably wouldn't be actively hunting when carrying this pack. You design may just work but I would prefer it on the side of the pack.

Good woor BTW! Looks good!
For some reason I did not see the replies to this thread. I have used the carry system and it is very secure and easy to hike with and has minimal sway. You have to remove the pack to get the rifle out. It can be used on the side of the pack too, I am sure you could configure a way to get the rifle out without taking the pack off. I designed this for hiking in and out of base camp with a full size backpack.

+1 for Outdoor Wilderness fabrics===I use them for various fabrics and they also have neoprene in different thicknesses. I'm currently working on a rifle scabbard for horseback hunting utilizing neoprene.

Re: Handmade Summit Pack and Rifle Carry System

I have used a Kirafu Long Range Hunter and gunbearer system many times and I love both of them. The only complaint I have is that when I hike all day I find having that 8-10 lbs of rifle hanging on one side causes my hip to ache badly. The best way to lash it and carry it centred on you back and close to the body (like the Eberlestock packs do) for the long hike then once you get to the hunting area switch to the gunbearer carry as there is no other system that allows you to get your gun into shooting position faster than the gunbearer does.
